Celtics forward Kevin Garnett, battling an injured knee, will not play again until three games remain in the regular season, the team confirmed today.
“After watching him move today, we’re just going to shut him down,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers at practice this afternoon.
“I just think we’ve got to be smart about it,” Rivers said Sunday. “It’s just like when somebody says somebody is going to be back in a week or two, that’s not a guarantee. If a guy gets sore, do we play him because we say he’s supposed to be back playing? You just use your common sense.”
