Kevin Garnett Injury Update: Out At Least 10 Days

Doc Rivers said on Saturday that forward Kevin Garnett could be out for at least 10 more days while he recovers from a hyper-extended right knee. From ESPN.com:

“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.”

Rivers continued to stress that Garnett’s injury should not be a long-term issue.

“It won’t be that long,” Rivers said after Friday’s practice. “When I did this, I looked at the schedule and the days off, and I thought this was the time to do it.”

Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo, who are each suffering from different injuries, could return on the three-game road trip. The Celtics first will stop on Miami on Wednesday to take on the Heat.
