Kevin Garnett could miss NBA Playoffs
If the Boston Celtics are going to repeat as NBA Champions, they very well could have to do it without the services of Kevin Garnett. Celtics’ Coach Doc Rivers discussed that scenario in a WEEI-AM radio interview earlier today. According to Rivers, “He’s (KG) not going to be ready. After watching him practice, there’s no way. The way I saw him move today, I don’t know if he’ll be ready.”
KG helps set the tone on Defense for the Celtics and without him I just don’t see them handling the likes of Orlando or Cleveland just to get out of the Eastern Confernce. Paul Pierce and company should be able to get past Chicago, but even that’s a question mark without KG’s intensity.
If you are setting your NBA Playoffs fantasy basketball rosters, you may want to avoid taking not only KG (obviously), but the rest of the Celtics players as they may not be long for the NBA Playoffs.
