Celtics’ Garnett could be back Monday; Perkins three weeks away

Doc Rivers had all sorts of good news for Celtics fans in his pregame press conference on Friday night before his team took on the Raptors.

The first, slid in to his comments almost casually, is that Kevin Garnett could be back from his calf injury on Monday. That would fit with the two-week timetable the Celtics announced when he got injured. If he does not play Monday against Houston then look for Wednesday against Sacramento.

His other note was that center Kendrick Perkins is about three weeks away. That would have him back right around the start of February, enough time to get his conditioning and timing down before the playoffs a couple of months later.

    that’s not an earthquake, it’s the collective shaking of the Miami Heat and their fanbase upon realizing how doomed they will be in the postseason…just like in cleveland, a whole bunch of regular wins wont amount to diddly shit for LBJ…
