There have been lots of unfortunate injuries as the 2005 -2006 NBA season and I'm here to tell you all about it. The Pacers Jermaine O'Neal sat out practice with a right thigh bruise but thinks he'll suit up for Tuesday's preseason opener against Vince Carter and the Nets. Other Pacers Jeff Foster and David Harrison sat out scrimmages with injuries that don't seem to go away. Speaking of the Nets newly signed to a 2 year deal now has a strain in a muscle on his back and will be out for an unannounced amount of time. A new rookie the Golden State Warriors lottery draft pick Ike Diogu fractured his left hand during an action in training camp in Hawaii. Also a follow up to my report on Amare Stoudamire. He will undergo diagnostic surgery on his left knee and he is estimated to be out three or four weeks after the surgery.
