Jermaine O’Neal ’50-50′ to play against Philadelphia

Celtics [1] center Jermaine O’Neal [2] went through his second practice with the team since he injured his knee in early November and said there was a chance he would be able to play Wednesday when the Celtics host the 76ers at TD Garden. “I’€™d say it’€™s a 50-50 chance,” O’Neal said. “At some point I’€™m going to play this week, whether it’€™s tomorrow or Christmas Day [against Orlando.]. I think I’€™m doable. I can help the team but for how long I don’€™t know.”

The issue for O’Neal is conditioning more than the knee injury, which he said has improved.

“My body’€™s going to be a little sore because I’€™ve been out for a month and a half,” he said. “There’€™s a difference between soreness and pain and right now I’€™m just a little sore. This is who I am right now. This is what God has given me. You deal with it and you move forward.”
