LOS ANGELES -- Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal said he planned to play Saturday in Game 7 against the Los Angeles Clippers after an MRI exam revealed a bone bruise in his right kneecap.

O'Neal said he had yet to run since getting injured in Thursday's 100-99 win in Game 6 on a collision with the Clippers' Glen Davis.

But after taking medication and receiving a painkilling injection, he said he would probably wear a knee brace and play through pain he currently felt.

"A pretty good amount, but you try to weigh out the pain of not being able to help your team, doing the things necessary for your team to win a Game 7," O'Neal said. "To me, that would be more pain than any physical ailment that you can go through, especially for a person in my position at this particular part of my career.

"I'm going to try to give everything I've got, and hopefully whatever I got is good enough to help my team win."

Coach Mark Jackson said center Festus Ezeli, who has missed all season recovering from knee surgery, probably would be out for the game.
