Garnett skips morning shootaround, still questionable

Via Sherrod Blakely:

The return of Kevin Garnett is still very much up in the air following Boston's morning shootaround prior to tonight's game against the Houston Rockets.

The C's went through their usual pregame walkthrough at the team's practice facility, but Garnett was not on the floor.

While it might appear that Garnett won't play tonight, it wouldn't be the first time this season a key player managed to suit up after not participating in the morning shootaround.

Rajon Rondo, who missed seven games prior to Boston's Jan. 2 win at Toronto because of a left ankle sprain,  did not participate in the C's walk-through prior to facing the Raptors.

Just a hunch, but I don't think KG will play tonight vs Houston.

  • Celtics

    Bummer he’s not playing, but as long as he healthy when ever he returns is good for me.

  • I hope KG does play tonight, because every game they play without him, other than the Spurs game, (thanks to Rondo)has been incredibly sloppy. I love Big Baby, but like Nate Robinson, I love him a lot more as a backup than as a starter.
    I might go insane if I have to watch a scrappy Rockets team knock off the Celtics tonight because KG isn’t in, which causes the Celtics to get outrebounded, and ultimately results in Davis leading the team in shot attempts, almost all of which are jumpers from just inside the 3 point arc. If they just play Celtics’ basketball and Rondo runs the offense effectively, they can beat Houston with or without Garnett… but I would love to see him back on the court tonight.
