According to Rotoworld, Jermaine O'Neal will sit out tonight when the Celtics take on the Thunder in Oklahoma City. O'Neal injured his wrist while taking a charge in Monday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Rookie Greg Stiemsma is expected to start in his place.

Chris Wilcox will also be out tonight after suffering a groin injury on Monday night. Even with the upcoming All-Star break, Wilcox might have to sit out a game or two after the conclusion of All-Star weekend.

Luckily, Kevin Garnett will be back after taking 2 games off to deal with a personal situation, but the Celtics' front court is looking thin, considering that Brandon Bass is also sidelined with injuries. Expect Stiemsma and JaJuan Johnson to get a lot of minutes tonight.

On the Thunder side, Nick Collison is expected to miss tonight's game due to a quad contusion. James Harden will be a game-time decision due to an ankle injury.
