I’ve got some good news, and I’ve got some bad news…
First, the bad news: According to Doc Rivers, KG might be out an additional ten days. This goddamn strategic rest keeps getting longer and longer.
“KG’s still 10 days, maybe, I don’t know,” said Rivers. “I have no idea, I honestly don’t. There is some history with hyperextended 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.”
And the good news? Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce will likely be back 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, hell, we don’t know how to treat that, nobody [here] has ever had that. We’ll find that out. We know what happens once he practices. It could swell, it could feel great. We just have to wait and see.”
