Strained Calf to Sideline Kevin Garnett ‘a Couple of Weeks’

Danny Ainge delivers the news that made all of Celtics Nation breathe an enormous sigh of relief: “An MRI revealed no structural damage to a knee that has already been surgically repaired, just a calf strain, and Garnett is expected to return after this hiccup. Instead of something that could alter the power structure of the Eastern Conference, the Celtics will simply have to deal with another injury to a significant contributor, though their depth is becoming increasingly thin. ‘It’s the muscle outside of the leg below the knee,’ Ainge told WEEI. ‘And it’s not anything to do with the knee, which is great news. He may be out for a couple of weeks at the most, I would say. That’s my guess. I’ll just say two weeks and I’d say that’s on the conservative side.’ Still, for a team that has been holding the lineup together by a thread for two months, this development is frustrating.”

    relax folks, relax. This is how you can tell how good your team really is: Take away it’s best player for a few weeks and see how the team plays over the course of time. What if LBJ went down for as long as Rondo has been gone then while LBJ was out Wade went out for a potential 2 weeks. How would they do? Let’s take KB8 out in the Rondo scenario then Pau for 2 or so weeks…hhhhmmmm plug in whatever top team you want then wipe out their best player then another key player..what do you get? The C’s will be fine.
