Shaq aims for playoffs return

Mar 12, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

As was always expected, the goal is to have Shaquille O’Neal back on the floor with the Cavaliers right about the time the playoffs start.

According to the Cleveland News-Herald, Shaq and general manager Danny Ferry worked out a timeline for when the big man will start working out and, depending on how that goes, return to the lineup.

The Cavaliers are pretty much locked in as the number one seed in the East, 4.5 games clear of Orlando. No reason to rush him back, but they will need him integrated back into the lineup by the time the second round of the playoffs roll around (and they could well see the big front line of Boston).

    Cavs seem to be on track. Z will be back in a week, Powe is on the active roster, Jamison’s knee is a minor problem and Shaq has promised to be in game-shape for the playoffs. Add Delonte West’s good play of later and the continuing contributions of Mo Williams, Andy Vareja, JJ Hickson, Parker, Moon and Gibson and the Cavs biggest problem may be to figure out playing time.
