Celtics president Danny Ainge said that Jermaine O'Neal will need surgery on his fractured left wrist, an injury he suffered in Game 1 of their playoff series with the Knicks. O'Neal broke his wrist taking a charge, but returned in that game and played throughout the postseason. The injury affected O'Neal's ability to finish inside, which he normally does with his left hand. "Jermaine is left-handed," Ainge said. "Most people don’t know this. He dunks and finishes and drives, he does everything with his left hand."
O'Neal also injured his back when he fell into the camera well that rings the court in the Miami series and was a persistent problem for him throughout the series. O'Neal said after the Celtics were eliminated that he would take some time before making a decision to return for the last year of his contract that will play him a little more than $6 million. However, he told WEEI.com that even with all the injuries he had this season that he felt he could physically hold up for one more year.
