Recommendation: O'Neal was a game-time scratch Monday, marking his ninth missed contest of the season. While we expect the 17-year veteran to miss a game here and there, it appears that a few days of rest have done him some good. His averages in January -- 3.1 points (on 28.1 percent shooting) and 2.6 boards in 11.4 minutes over seven outings -- are likely a good barometer of his potential production Thursday.
Update: O'Neal will play Thursday versus Milwaukee, despite dealing with recent back spasms, Arizona Sports 620 AM reports.
