I think you should drop him because he even said he'll be looking out for his health and its not like the pacers are going to have a championship run this year. Plus even if he does come back, it'll most likely be after the fantasy regular season is over

Who would you potentially pick up? If its Arenas then by all means, but if its a flavor of the week, don't do it.

If you've held him this long, what's the rush in dropping him? At least wait until the trade deadline, as a last minute deal could "revitalize" him. The Pacers expect him to be on the court this season, and I expect to see him there as well. I dropped Alston for JO last week, and I hope to have him for the last four weeks of the season at least.

Keep in mind, the Pacers could be fghting for an 8th spot in the playoff seeding. This could encourage JO to give it another shot this season to prove hes going to be the "all-star" he keeps talking about. I expect him to return around the trade dealine or soon after.

If you can wait on him, I would do it. If you are barely in the in the playoffs at this point or just out of contention, I guess it really depends on who you plan on picking up. The last 4 weeks of the season are that matter though if you are already in the hunt. Keep that in mind.

Jermaine O'Neal-F/C- Pacers Feb. 20 - 10:19 am et

Jermaine O'Neal, out with a bone bruise in his knee, recently started doing on-the-court work, but his return date is still not known.

It sounds like the question is when O'Neal will return, rather than if. His name still pops up in trade rumors (primarily with the Nets), but his $44 million contract over the next two years prohibits most potential deals.


I'll take that as good news. Come on JO!
