That’s what Doc Rivers says:
“He ran (Thursday), he told me, on the treadmill, and he said he felt great,” Rivers said of Garnett. “Other than that, that’s the first day he’s been able to run. We’re just going to take our time. I would say at least a week, and most likely longer.”
Garnett will miss games against Cleveland (tonight) and Orlando (Sunday) and is doubtful for a visit to Miami (Wednesday) and a home game against Memphis (next Friday).
Selfishly, I want him back now. I like watching the Celtics so much more when he’s playing. However, I’m in full favor of the conservative approach with him. I don’t want him rushing back and missing playoff time.
