KG Update: He’s Still Limping

Chuck - Red's Army April 23, 2009 Uncategorized 6 Comments

KG was spotted at Celtics practice earlier today:

Garnett, sidelined with a strained knee for possibly the entire
postseason, used a handrail to help descend a flight of steps from a
workout room to the court. He limped noticeably while walking on
hardwood floor, where he shot some jumpers and took some time to help
Kendrick Perkins on his post moves.

Doc Rivers on KG:

When asked if Garnett could play if the Celtics advance to conference
finals, Rivers replied, "There's a chance he could play tonight, but
he's not. We just hope that he keeps getting better. And if [a return
later in the postseason] happens it would be great, obviously. Like I
said before, I don't think it's going to happen."

There you have it. KG is limping.

As for Rondo, he says his ankle feels fine. Scal remains on track to play tonight in Game 3.

    HHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM very interesting
    There’s no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to play Power Forward on this plane?

    Wait, what? He needs assistance descended a flight of stairs, but he could play tonight? His knee is that bad, but he’s shooting jumpers? No wonder nothing is healing. Doc doesn’t want to answer KG questions anymore, but he keeps doing it? To him it’s “official” that KG’s out for the entire post season, but then again maybe he could come back?
    This is more aggravating than listening to politicians.

    If it is a tear, it will not heal. If it is a tear, it will likely not get “worse” but get aggravated. I’ve had it, had the scope. It had been bothering me on and off for years and I kept putting off the surgery, but then I played a 3 hour long tennis match and felt perfect, and when I squatted down to put my racquet in the bag, had an unbelievable burning sensation. That put me over the edge. My doctor said it was the squatting down and the aggravation was totally unrelated to the tennis match.
    The worst symptom, and often the only symptom, arises when you are doing 2 things, getting out of the car and going down stairs. It feels as if your leg is going to give out under you. Ironically, this sensation completely disappears when you are on flat ground.
    So, my point is, I expect him to need a little assistance going down stairs even if he is feeling great!
    Gosh, I am so excited about tonight’s game!

    Tired of the KG story. He’ll be back late in the Cleveland series in a limited role in my opinion. We gotta get there though.
    Very long, but very interesting read:
