Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal is questionable for Saturday's Game 7 with a knee bone bruise, the team announced Friday.

The Warriors desperately need O'Neal to play, with Andrew Bogut out and Festus Ezili unlikely to play. They need the size. Golden State managed to survive Game with both David Lee and Draymond Green picking up five fouls by the fourth quarter.
The small lineup is Golden State's best chance to win, but using O'Neal is key to both spell the forwards and counter with a few stretches of inside play. O'Neal being limited could have a huge impact.
