KG “unlikely” for tonight’s game in Philadelphia

This doesn’t appear to be any kind of injury issue.  This is just a matter of Doc preserving Garnett for the regular season.  The Celtics play tomorrow, Thursday, and then both Saturday and Sunday.  There was never any chance KG would play all of those games.

I wouldn’t be shocked to see Pierce sit out a couple of games during this stretch.  Maybe Terry or even Rondo too.

  • Seeing that we have a back-to-back, I have to agree that KG, Pierce, Rondo etc won’t play much these next 2 nights. I’m kind of interested to see how Jason Collins looks anyway. Also wouldn’t mind seeing what Dionte can do with some extended minutes..

    It makes sense to rest Garnett, Pierce and Allen the next 2 weeks. It’s preseason, games are meaningless and for a team like the Celtics with it’s success guys need rest and preserve energy for the upcoming season.

    • Mr Curet

      Allen is no longer a Celtic bro
