Kevin Garnett will miss the Celtics' game against Oklahoma City Sunday night and is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Charlotte. Garnett, recovering from a right knee strain, did not participate in this morning's shootaround.
"I just think we've got to be smart about it," coach Doc Rivers said. "It's just like when somebody says somebody is going to be back in a week or two, that's not a guarantee. If a guy gets sore, do we play him because we say he's supposed to be back playing? You just use your common sense. Put it like this, he would have to be very good for me to play him. He won't be out long. We've got two days (Monday and Tuesday) off and, hopefully, by the end of the week."
Garnett could be available when the Celtics play host to Atlanta Friday. Rivers has scheduled four days of practice after that.
