Veteran center Jermaine O’Neal signed with the Golden State Warriors this summer in another attempt at landing with a championship contender. In an effort to remain on the court more than he has in recent seasons, O’Neal underwent a procedure on his knee known as Regenokine treatment, according to Marcus Thompson of the Times-Herald.O’Neal was a member of the Boston Celtics from 2010-12, but he only saw action in 49 games over that span. The big man told Thompson that he was largely limited during that time due to lingering knee issues."My two years in Boston were very difficult to deal with, especially when you know that you still can play," O'Neal said. "But my knee was causing so much problems. We were talking about winning it all, and I wasn't able to help the team do that."As a result, O’Neal finally acted and took a bit of a risk, undergoing Regenokine treatment, something recommended to him by NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant. It’s a procedure in which the patient’s blood is taken and manipulated to get a concentrated protein-heavy fluid. This fluid is then injected into the area that is causing problems, encouraging healing.O’Neal says the procedure revitalized his knees, allowing him to average 8.3 points and 5.3 rebounds over 19 minutes per game last season with the Phoenix Suns. He felt the procedure was good enough to warrant a second trip to Germany this summer to undergo the same treatment.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
