A Friday return for Kevin Garnett?
|03.29.09 at 7:08 pm ET|
Kevin Garnett was not in the lineup for the second straight game, and he’s probably out for Wednesday’s game against Charlotte, as well. “It depends on how he moves in practice,” said Doc Rivers who added that it was “likely” that Garnett would return Friday when the Celtics host Atlanta.
Rivers also said they haven’t discussed how his minutes would go when he does return, but that the coach was looking for, “better movement (and) less soreness,” from Garnett. “I go by his gait,” Rivers said. “It’s not hard, really. Just watch him run.”
Big Baby Davis started in Garnett’s place against the Thunder and the Celtics will once again go with three big men–Davis, Kendrick Perkins and Mikki Moore.
