Kevin Garnett doubtful for Wednesday against the Kings

WALTHAM — Celtics [1] forward Kevin Garnett [2] did not take part in his team’s practice on Tuesday, and it is unlikely that he will play on Wednesday when the Celtics are scheduled to host Sacramento.

He’€™s just not ready yet,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers [3] said. “He’€™s close, very close. I think he wants to play but I just don’€™t think he should play yet.”

The Celtics won’t have a shootaround before Wednesday’s game, which is another indication that Garnett won’t play against the Kings. “I doubt he plays. There’s a chance but I doubt it,” said Rivers, who called Garnett day-to-day.

Garnett has been out since suffering a left calf strain against the Pistons on Dec. 29. Including that contest, the Celtics are 4-4 without Garnett, and his absence was felt acutely by teammates [4] during their 108-102 loss to the Rockets on Monday.

In 30 games this year, Garnett is averaging 15.0 points and 9.5 boards a game while shooting a career-best 53.9 percent from the floor.
