Shaquille O'Neal Out with Hand Injury

The Cavaliers depth inside is about to get tested in a major way.  Shaquille O'Neal left Thursday NIght's game in Boston in the 2nd Quarter with what the Cavaliers are calling a "significant thumb sprain" on his right hand.  O'Neal looked to get injured when Glen Davis of the Celtics swiped the ball out of Shaq's hands as he was going up for a shot.  O'neal originally stayed in the game, but left shortly thereafter when he continued to feel pain in the hand.

The Cavaliers are already down Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who was traded to Washington in the deal to acquire Antawn Jamison.  Ilgauskas agreed to a buy-out with the Wizards, but can not re-join the Cavaliers until March 21st at the earliest.

Leon Powe did make his Cavaliers' debut after Shaqq left the game.
