Celtics’ Kevin Garnett’s status uncertain against Heat

Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett sat out last night’s contest against the Charlotte Bobcats due to a left adductor strain, according to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston. Coach Doc Rivers told reporters that, due to the injury, he’s unsure of Garnett’s status for Monday’s game against the Miami Heat.

When asked about Garnett’s status for tomorrow’s contest, Rivers said:

"I don’t know," said Rivers. "Honestly, I haven’t looked that far ahead. I have no idea."

The Celtics had considered resting Garnett at the end of the season in preparation for the playoffs. However, Rivers said Saturday’s sitting had nothing to do with this plan. Instead, Garnett was held out because “he wasn’t moving well yesterday in practice or today [at shoot around],”according to Rivers.

Jeff Green replaced Garnett in Boston’s starting lineup last night. The Celtics have 17 games remaining and current sit in third place in the Atlantic Conference with a record of 36-29.
