Boston might be without two additional starters – Paul Pierce (right knee) has missed the last three games – with the most serious injury being to the surgically repaired right knee of Kevin Garnett.
Rivers said he hasn’t made up his mind as to whether he will sit Garnett or Rajon Rondo whose left hamstring didn’t appear to bother him too much during the team’s morning shoot-around.
Garnett’s injury is clearly the more serious of the two.
“If I do decide to sit him (Garnett), I’m not sitting him for one game. I can tell you that,” Rivers said. “I told Kevin that.”
If Rondo and KG sit, that will make five rotation players who won’t be suiting up tonight, including arguably the Celtics three best players.
