The heart surgery underwent by Jermaine O'Neal's 13-year-old daughter Wednesday was deemed successful.
Our best wishes go out to O'Neal and his family. Prior to leaving the Suns to be with his daughter, J.O. said he expected to miss three games. That would put him back on the court by Monday. With Marcin Gortat (foot) almost certainly done for the season, O'Neal projects to see a bump in minutes upon his return. Although he has an atrocious injury history, there's upside here for owners in need of blocks.
