Kevin Garnett did not participate in Celtics shootaround, still 50-50 to play against Heat

Monday March 18th, 2013

Kevin Garnett did not participate in the Celtics shootaround this morning, increasing the likelihood that he will not play tonight against the Miami Heat. The Celtics are looking to end Miami's 22-game streak and could use Garnett in Monday night's game.

Garnett was out Saturday against the Bobcats and did not practice on Sunday with a strained adductor. He is considered 50-50 to play against the Heat, but sitting out the shootaround makes it more likely that he will miss Monday's game.
