MIAMI (AP) _ Heat center Shaquille O'Neal practiced Tuesday and is
likely to play Wednesday against the Bulls. That's according to
coach Pat Riley, whose team has lost 10 games in a row and is an
Eastern Conference-worst 8-and-28. O'Neal is trying to come back
from a hip injury that has sidelined him for eight games.
A sore left knee has also contributed to the least productive
season in O'Neal's 16-year NBA career. He is averaging 13.9 points
and 7.9 rebounds.
