Garnett back in lineup for game vs. Portland Comment Email Print Share By Chris Forsberg ESPNBoston.com Archive
Celtics coach Doc Rivers confirmed that forward Kevin Garnett will return to the starting lineup Friday night after a 10-game absence.
"He looked great -- he looked good today, this morning, yesterday during his little workout with the guys," said Rivers. "So he's good."
Rivers also indicated there would be no minute restriction on Garnett; instead, the team will allow him to gauge how he feels on the court.
"There's no minute restriction, we'll go more by his endurance, how he feels on the floor," said Rivers. "As far as the knee, we're not concerned by that.
"He's been running for a good week, week-and-a-half, so he does have some conditioning. But obviously it's not basketball condition. You can work out all you want, but the adrenaline and intensity, it's different when you play a real game. We'll find that out."
thirstyboots18: KO started tonight. I really don't care for him...he is to careless with the ball, and when it is in hands with his back to the basket he freezes...handing it off in a hurry to the first person to get close enough to him.

thirstyboots18: I think KO is talented, also AB is talented, someone must want them for a decent trade.

thirstyboots18: I have hope that Rondo, Sully, Zeller and Smart will turn in to a good base...and we can pick up a star through trade. Zeller has looked good in limited minutes. I am waiting for the 20 game rule to make final predictions.
