Default Team Doctor measures Shaq at 321 pounds, 11% body fat

Phew, so he's not 350 like a lot of people were claiming.

For all the negative buzz about Shaquille O'Neal's health, Suns team physician Thomas Carter almost was expecting to find a giant plagued by structural abnormalities and rampant tendinitis during the center's physical this week.

It was the opposite. He said 7-foot-1 O'Neal weighed 321 pounds, carried 11 percent body fat and showed minimal arthritis for a 35-year-old man of his size.

"There's no reason he can't get back to playing a high level from a structural standpoint," Carter said.

He said the hip injury that has sidelined O'Neal was as good as could be expected, because the tightness was in his soft tissue.

His surgery history consists of only one that removed spurs from his right toe and a left-knee arthroscopic procedure, which has led to only "slight arthritis."

"It's not as severe as many players of his age and stature would have," Carter said.
O'Neal will return to Phoenix on Sunday and have a workout. He will practice Monday and could play a game no earlier than Thursday's at home against Dallas, the final game before All-Star break.
Some encouraging news for Suns fans But he was still lying about being 315, either that or he drank a lot (well 6 pounds) of water. But for normal people, body weight often fluctuates 1 or 2 kilos just with food/water/poo, so for a big fella like Shaq it may be exaggerated.

Even if he doesn't go Thursday, getting him back after the allstar break and getting a second half of a season out of him would be huge for PHX. I really don't think PHX can afford to have him go down for an extended period. I can't wait to see how this experiment works out.
