The Herald is reporting that KG will not play tonight and that there is no timetable for his return but that Ray Allen will be in the starting lineup.
It’s official. Kevin Garnett will not play tonight against the Mavericks and Ray Allen is in. Doc Rivers gave the word a few minutes ago.
Rivers went on to say that there is no timetable for Garnett’s return. KG did some light shooting this morning and went through a conditioning workout, but the coach said that even with the four days off after tonight’s game, Garnett is not a lock to play next Tuesday in Cleveland.
Celtics.com has Scal in the starting lineup at power forward against Dirk. I have a bad feeling about that matchup. Leon Powe is now listed as the Sixth Man and that is a good thing. I really like what Leon brings to the game. We match up pretty well with Rondo against Terry, Ray Allen against Eddie Jones, Perk versus Dampier and Pierce against Howard. The defensive matchup against Dirk is going to be key in this game and I don't see Scal getting it done.
