If the Celtics are to snap Miami’s 22-game winning streak Monday night at TD Garden, they’ll have to do so without their big man.
Kevin Garnett will not suit up for Boston as he continues to be hampered by both a strained adductor in his left leg and a case of the flu, head coach Doc Rivers announced prior to the game. KG did not play in the Celtics’ 105-88 win over Charlotte on Saturday and did not participate in Sunday’s practice or Monday morning’s shootaround.
Jeff Green will get the start in Garnett’s place. Tip-off at the Garden is scheduled for 8 p.m.
