Ron Artest and Peja Stojakovic should be with their new teams by the time they play on Friday, but will they take the court? Celtics coach Doc Rivers, whose team is hosting Artest and the Kings on Friday, told the Boston Herald he expects to see Artest on the floor:
It's unclear what the Pacers' plans are, but Conrad Brunner of Pacers.com wouldn't be surprised to see Peja thrown into the fire as the Pacers host the Cavs:
That's right, Indiana has bigger problems than worrying about Peja's debut right now: Jermaine O'Neal may have torn a groin muscle on Tuesday night, and he indicated yesterday that he could be sidelined for at least two weeks. It'll be interesting to see what their starting lineup looks like in the interim.
