KG Out Another 10 Days

Chuck - Red's Army January 11, 2010 Uncategorized 5 Comments on KG Out Another 10 Days


It's already been 15. That's 15 days without so much as running,
jumping, or skipping. Garnett certainly hasn't been playing (though he
did walk through the Celtics locker room tonight, sans limp).

"Now I actually am pretty sure it will be in the next ten
days or so," said Rivers. "He started working out today for the first
time. So now it's just conditioning. We want to make sure he gets
strong and back in shape, because he literally hasn't done anything."

It's at this point in Rivers' injury-related press conferences that
the coach likes to deflect attention away from the obvious (what's
taking so long???) and talk about how hard it is to take a competitor
like Garnett off the court.

"I think more like 10 days [not two weeks], but with him, trying to hold him down for that extra four will be very difficult."

Rivers said Garnett rode the exercise bike today and did some running. Before this, he's only done shooting.

"He feels great," said Rivers.

    And there it is… the next shoe, dropped.
    Doc and Danny have opened up a shoe factory, I hear. They’re calling it “BULLSHIT, INC.”

    It’s clear that Doc, is only a DOC in name and he’ll NEVER REALLY be SURE when KG will be back. I’m sure in 10 days ANOTHER 10 days will be tacked on. Who knows? We may not see KG until the playoffs.
    WTF is this ISH?! Boston can only take so much of this Belichickian playbook. Bill makes up for more than enough. Sadly, it’s infiltrating the Celtics. Something ISN’T RIGHT.

    I don’t understand this. Kobe breaks every finger in his hand over the past two years and doesn’t miss a game. Davis strains a thumb and misses like 30. same with Daniels.
    Artest gets a concussion and misses 4 games. Scal gets one and misses like 30.
    Bynum tears every ligament in his knee, has surgery, and comes back for the playoffs. KG has some bone spurs half way into the season, no surgery, misses rest of year.
    now I admit, I’m not a doctor or any sort of medical person (I sell TVs) but it seems to me that every decision Ed Lacerte makes is the wrong one. they are so extremely cautious with every bump, and it costs us games. I’m honestly a little surprised they didn’t do surgery on House to cure his flu.

    Lol to your last line 🙂
    Lakers are way too extreme in the opposite sense of the Cs. They’re risking their whole season to win a couple more December/January games. Cs on the other hand keep KG out for reasons… well… “unknown”. (But to be fair, Scal had THREE concussions, which is life-threatening, and Baby did break his hand.)

    Bynum was out a year before that.
