ESPN 71+ SHARES
Golden State Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal, who suffered a sprained right knee on what he called a "dirty play" by Los Angeles Clippers big man Glen Davis, will have an MRI exam Friday and hopes to play in Game 7 on Saturday night in Los Angeles.
anything short of that, I will play," O'Neal said Thursday night.
O'Neal suffered the injury during the Warriors' 100-99 victory Thursday night when Davis lowered his shoulder and crashed into him while going for a rebound in the second quarter.
"It's just a dirty play, to be quite honest," O'Neal told USA Today.
Golden State is already without centers Andrew Bogut (fractured rib) and Festus Ezeli (knee surgery).
