Celtics Excited To Get Garnett Back Soon
Kevin Garnett is expected to return to the Celtics for Monday's game against the Magic.
He has been out since late December with a calf injury.
"Obviously, the game changes from a communication standpoint to the pick-and-roll," Rajon Rondo said of Garnett's presence. "He changes the game a lot. He's definitely a low-post presence, as well.
"We definitely miss him. I wanted him back a couple games ago, but he has to take care of his body, be conscious. Same as he told me when I was down — be smart. We just try to hold them down as much as possible until he comes back."
Garnett, who is averaging 15 points and 9.5 rebounds per game, missed nine games with the injury.
