Kevin Garnett back on court shooting

Garnett injured

Kevin Garnett will not be on the court when the Celtics take on the Spurs Wednesday at the TD Garden. Not that we should be reading much into January games in the first place, but that really squashes any thoughts of “the two best teams battle” giving us much to chew on.

But Garnett is getting closer.

He was on the court at the Celtics practice facility taking jumpers Wednesday afternoon, according to the Boston Globe. That just a week after a calf strain which was expected to keep him out several weeks.

Garnett wasn’t talking, and there is no reason to suggest anything has been moved up from his original return date expected next week. Except that he was out shooting, so… who knows?

    His full return (present AND healthy) is necessary for the Celtics to be a true contender. Here’s how the top-6 contenders have done against good and bad teams so far this year. Orlando and LA might surprise you.
