    KG out tonight and maybe longer with sore knee

    http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/nba...ory?id=4782632

    Losers of two straight games, the Boston Celtics could be without Kevin Garnett (sore right knee) for Wednesday night's game against the Phoenix Suns, and perhaps longer.

    I was just about to post this as well.


    "If I do decide to sit [Garnett], I'm not sitting him for one game. I can tell you that," Celtics coach Doc Rivers told Comcast Sportsnet. "I told Kevin that."

    Rivers told Comcast that if he decided to sit Garnett, he would probably keep him out until about Jan. 6, when the Celtics face the Heat, or longer. He said he wasn't sure if that was the direction he was going to take with Garnett but that he was "leaning that way heavily."

    "It's early in the season," Rivers told Comcast. "We got tonight and we got two days, and then we got three days after that. To me, if you're going to rest guys, this is the perfect time to do it."

    It makes sense. Have him ready for the playoffs. It's not like they can't win on the road.

    Looks like it may come down to Orlando and Cleveland for the #1 seed now.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    I think the hit in the Magic game is finally kicking in, they'd better rest him early because the next 15 games are brutal for the Cs.

    Rondo is banged up. If he plays though...he's going to put up some ridiculous numbers tonight.

    Pierce should be back soon so that will help. They need Big Baby back now.

    Celtics getting injured, but I'd sit him more than I need to, just cuz their all so old and could use the rest.

    Agreed, I live in Boston and I just heard that he will rest on a combonation of knicks and bruises on his knee, head, and thigh. Enter Rasheed Wallace...

    Okay, I'm going to give you guys my Rondo-Stopping game plan, now this is difficult, so get a pen and paper and write it all down... you ready?... let's do this:

    Give him 10 feet of space and then foul him when he gets 5 feet within the basket.

    Rondo looks like he will play tonight, he participated in the shootaround this afternoon. Big baby would help with some depth, but he looks terrible so far this year.

    Sounds doable. Thing is, he'd foul out every player on Phoenix in 10 minutes. He can get to the paint at will. When he's looking for his shot when he attacks, not just looking to pass, he's unstoppable.

    Rondo is too smart to let a silly, hack-a-Shaq like technique slow him down. One of the most cerebral players in the game.

    Not really. The Suns probabbly can't work that game play without fouling, but teams like the Lakers, Magic, and Cavs can. Those teams can sag off him and when he drives those teams have legit big guys to alter his shot. The only team that I have seen do this well is the Lakers.
