Sore shoulder sidelines Raptors' O'Neal
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Six-time All-Star Jermaine O'Neal left the Toronto Raptors' 91-83 loss to Oklahoma City on Friday night with a sore left shoulder, but said he expects to play Saturday at San Antonio.
O'Neal came out of the game with 3:22 left in the second quarter, and the team said after halftime that he was not expected to return.
O'Neal, picked up in an offseason trade with Indiana, missed three games last month due to a sprained left ankle but had started the rest of the Raptors' games.
