(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Pacers Coach Jim O'Brien is hopeful that Jermaine O'Neal will be back in the Indiana lineup tonight.
O'Neal missed Wednesday's opening-night win over the Wizards with a hyperextended left knee. O'Neal missed half of the preseason with the injury he suffered in practice when he banged knees with Shawne Williams.
Forward Troy Murphy is expected to miss his second-straight game this evening. Murphy has a strained left achilles tendon.
