KG has the flu… and so might Tony Allen
Garnett, who is averaging 16.3 points and 9.0 rebounds and had missed only one game (due to suspension) before yesterday, won’t travel with the team, Rivers said. Instead, he will rest with the goal of getting back to practice Wednesday in preparation for the Lakers Thursday.
“He’s feeling better,” Rivers said. “Be he’s not feeling great and we really want to try to keep him away from the rest of the guys.”
Tony Allen was also one of the three Celtics who passed on his shot, and Rivers said Allen wasn’t feeling well either.
“There’s a likely chance he won’t be on the road trip as well,” Rivers said. “Two guys that didn’t take the flu shot, but . . . ”
That’s why I always get my flu shot… and follow that up by drinking enough Gin daily to kill a horse. Sure, I’m doing massive damage to my internal organs… but nothing else can live for very long in there either.
By the way… Scal is the 3rd Celtic to skip the flu shot.
