The Pacers bring their "Where's Ronnie" tour to the Meadowlands for a Martin Luther King Day afternoon contest Monday. With the Artest issue on their minds--and without him on the court--the Pacers have gone into a tailspin lately, helped by Jermaine O'Neal's recent illness and injury. O'Neal is not expected to play on Monday and the Pacers are not expected to trade Artest by then either. As for Richard Jefferson, there are high hopes, but no certainty, that he will be in the lineup.
