Doc: Kevin Garnett is “50-50 to play at best” for Heat Game

 

The Miami Heat are arriving in town, but Kevin Garnett may not be waiting for them on the TD Garden floor. With 11 straight home wins now in the books, the Celtics had another practice today in Waltham to prepare for the defending champions and their now 22-game winning streak, the 3rd longest in NBA history.

The story of the day was unsurprisingly the status of the C’s prized power forward, who missed Saturday night’s win over the Bobcats with a adductor strain in his left leg. KG also sat out today’s practice in Waltham and Rivers took a variety of questions about Garnett’s status moving forward. (Via Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston.com)

On his status for Heat game: “We don’t know what he’s going to do tomorrow. My guess is he’s 50/50, at best.”

Rivers’ concern level for KG’s injury?  ”Probably a 1 on a scale to 10. Even if he misses a couple games, it’s not an injury that’s a big deal. I’m not that concerned by it.”

On whether he will get an MRI:  ”I don’t think so. Again, I don’t think it’s that serious. It’s just at the point of the year where you’re just not going to play him if he’s not feeling great.”

On the Heat: “They are just better at what they do. I don’t think they’ve changed much. They’ve played the same way all year. They spread the floor, they attack. I think defensively is where they’ve really gotten a lot better over this stretch. Everybody is doing everything great for them right now. LeBron is playing on a different level and Wade is healthy now, I think that’s the biggest difference from when you saw them earlier in the year. Wade’s a different player. LeBron’s been the same, he’s been dominant. But now Wade is being dominant as well and everybody else is just feeding off of that.”

    I just think there's no chance that KG doesn't play tomorrow – if he indeed is in streetclothes there's probably something serious going on

    Don’t forget, this is still regular season. Doc won’t.

    It the Heat and their streak. Sure winning and shutting off the tap would be nice but I don’t think it’s enough to put a questionable KG on the floor to play hard. It’s not like the Celtics have more to gain versus what they’ll lose if they run the risk. I would sit KG and get him healthy for the playoffs, especially give the season ending injuries they’ve racked up this season.

      Robert, I was just about to start lamenting the fact that KG won't play tonight, but this definitely puts it in perspective. Thank you.
