KG to Sit Until the Playoffs

The Celtics say it’s for the best: “Doc Rivers officially ruled Kevin Garnett out of action until the playoffs, meaning Saturday – the expected date of the team’s first playoff game – is the earliest the Celtics [team stats] forward will take the floor. Garnett has missed 21 of the team’s past 25 games because of a strained right knee…’It wasn’t a big deal for him, especially after watching us yesterday,’ Rivers said of Sunday’s 31-point loss in Cleveland. ‘I don’t think Kevin was surprised by this news at all. But let’s hope everything else goes as planned, and Leon [Powe] can play.’”

    Good, so KG will be around, ie. *sitting* by the phone when Joe Smith and Wally leave him the message: “Ssup KG, you were right, the ring is shinier and bigger than Ida thought – say hey to Steph from us. Peace”

    Looks like his knees really couldn’t carry all that extra obnoxiousness he had put on.

    they may not repeat, but I have a feeling they will get a couple pickups this off season that will have everyone scrapping and clawing their way back on the bannywagon

    Don’t worry Celts fans, I’m sure he’ll magically become better once the playoffs start.

    That is great news! Come play off time, you know he will be healthy. There is no need put any stress on the injury. God forbid it gets worse. A healthy and charged KG, is better than a cautious and hurt KG. It ain’t the same watching the Celts without KG dominating everybody in the paint.
