Indiana played without two starters Wednesday night. All-star Jermaine O'Neal sat out with swelling in his left knee. O'Neal suffered the injury in practice when he banged knees with Shawne Williams and missed Indiana's final four preseason games.

Head Coach Jim O'Brien expects O'Neal to be available for Friday night's game with the heat. Troy Murphy was out with a strained achilles tendon. O'brien expects Murphy to miss at least the first three games of the regular season.
