Report: Rondo and Garnett questionable

CSN New England’s A. Sherrod Blakely is reporting [1] that Rajon Rondo [2] and Kevin Garnett [3] are both questionable for tonight’s game with the Suns. Per Blakely, Doc Rivers [4] told the press after practice that of the two, Rondo is more likely to play. Rondo is dealing with a sore hamstring. Rivers also said that he may wind up sitting Garnett for the next week, specifically citing a game against Miami on Jan. 6 as a potential target date. That would mean Garnett would miss two games; tonight and Saturday against Toronto.

If Garnett can’t go, Rasheed Wallace [5] would likely get the start in his place. Rivers has been reluctant to play Wallace and Kendrick Perkins [6] together, preferring that each man the center spot, but Wallace started for Garnett against Philadelphia after Garnett came down with a thigh bruise

UPDATE: The Herald’s Steve Bulpett files from Phoenix [7] that the Celtics [8] are saying Garnett’s latest problem is not related to his surgery, but that he got kicked in the knee against the Warriors, Monday.
