KG Flying to Boston for MRI

UPDATE: Danny Ainge confirms KG is back in Boston and will miss remainder of the trip.

Our favorite ESPN blowhard has this on KG:

Boston forward Kevin Garnett was headed back to Boston after straining his right knee in the Celtics' 90-85 loss to Utah on Thursday night.

ESPN The Magazine's Stephen A. Smith reported that Garnett would return to Boston on Friday to undergo an MRI exam. The Celtics' road trip continues with a game against the Suns in Phoenix on Sunday.

Garnett injured his right leg while going up for an alley-oop late in the first half. He landed gingerly and motioned immediately to the bench for a substitute, then hopped on his good foot toward the locker room. The Celtics said he strained his right knee.

Having KG fly back to Boston for an MRI he could have in Phoenix means we won't see him in action until next Friday's home game against Indiana, at the earliest.

This injury could have an affect on whether or not the soon-to-be-bought-out Joe Smith comes to Boston. If he's torn between the Cavs or the Celtics, why would he pick the team with an injured superstar?

    One of the reasons Joe Smith wants Boston over CLE is KG and their days back in Minn

    Nice start time David Stern. F’n overslept and didn’t get to work til 11.
    AND they didn’t even win and f*cking KG hobbled off the floor. I would’ve had more fun racking myself on a hand railing last night.

    Talk about soft. No one even touched KG. Imagine if a giant like Kobe or Odom came crashing down on him.
    Hopefully for you guys, this is another Pierce-style fake injury. Someone should tell KG that unlike the Lakers, his team can’t afford to lose a key player.
    Have fun watching LA pull away down the stretch.
