O'Neal misses practice with sinus infection



INDIANAPOLIS -- Pacers forward Jermaine O'Neal missed practice Thursday with a sinus infection and was probable for Game 3 of Indiana's playoff series with Boston.

O'Neal is the team's leading scorer and rebounder. He has averaged 23 points and 11 rebounds in the playoff series, which the Pacers lead 2-0.

"We have to do what we can to get healthy by tomorrow," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "If we don't have Jermaine, we're going to have to have other guys step up."
