Kevin Garnett To Miss More Playing Time

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced today that the team intends to shut down Kevin Garnett until three games remain in the regular season.

 

"After watching him move today, we're just going to shut him down," Rivers said. "It probably won't be for the year. He'll probably play by the end, last couple of games or last three games. It's just not progressing the way we anticipated it would progress."

 

Should he return as hoped, it would be for an Apr. 12 game against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

 

Garnett has missed 14 games this year due to a strained right knee.

 

Glen “Big Baby” Davis will continue to start in his place.
