KG On Track For Training Camp

Marc Spears gives us the good news update on Kevin Garnett.

Kevin Garnett continues to make progress in his recovery from knee surgery, and the Boston Celtics hope their All-Star forward will be cleared for full-court scrimmaging by the start of training camp.

Garnett began working out at the Celtics' practice facility on Monday. For now, he is limited to participating in court drills that include shooting and running. He could be cleared for contact as early as the week before camp.

I don't have to remind you how important KG is to this year's team.  Glad to hear some positive news out of the Celtics camp.  More quotes after the break.

Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said the team continues to be cautious with Garnett, who missed the playoffs with a right knee injury that eventually required surgery on May 26.

"We're looking for him to be there at the end of the season, not just the start of the season," Ainge said. "We're getting him ready for training camp and looking forward to him being healthy in the playoffs. He looks good. Really good."

Spears also offered this non-update on the Rondo contract situation:

Ainge said he is unsure whether the Celtics will offer point guard Rajon Rondo a contract extension before the start of the season. If Rondo does not receive an extension, he will become a restricted free agent next summer.
