Things aren't looking good for the Big Ticket.
Kevin Garnett remains sidelined with a knee injury and, according to head coach Doc Rivers, he won't be ready anytime soon.
"KG's still 10 days, maybe, I don't know," Rivers told ESPNBoston.com. "I have no idea, I honestly don't. There is some history with hyper-extended knees that we kind of know that it takes at least two weeks, sometimes three. We know it won't be longer than that, but we don't know how quickly. There's a history there — not with [Garnett] — but with league history."
KG joins Paul Pierce on the bench as two-thirds of the Big Three have been unable to pitch in. Also in street clothes lately has been guard Rajon Rondo, who, like Pierce, will likely return sooner than Garnett.
"Rondo and Paul would be first in line," said Rivers. "I think Rondo will play in the Miami game. I think Paul is 50/50, he'll try to practice on Monday and we'll see how it feels. With infections, we don't know how to treat that, nobody [here] has ever had that. We'll find that out. We don't know what will happen once he practices. It could swell, it could feel great. We just have to wait and see."
