‘Strategic rest’ for Garnett

Posted By Jessica Camerato On December 22, 2009 @ 7:29 pm In General | No Comments

Kevin Garnett [1] [right thigh bruise] will not play against the Pacers. Rasheed Wallace [2] will start in his place. According to the team, the decision was a precautionary one made by head coach Doc Rivers [3].

The move to give Garnett “strategic rest” was made in an effort to have the star ready for their Christmas Day game in Orlando on Friday afternoon.

Tuesday’s game, the 27th of the season, marks the first time the Celtics [4] have had a different lineup.
