Quoting Doc from ESPN Boston:
"I'm pretty sure [Garnett will return] in the next 10 days," Rivers said. "He started working out today for the first time, now it's just a conditioning thing. We want to make sure he gets strong, gets back in shape. He literally hasn't done anything. We figure about 10 days to two weeks, but I figure it's more like 10 days with him. Trying to hold him down for those extra four would be extra difficult."
Below is the schedule for January. If Kevin Garnett is only 10 days away, that puts him back in time for the Portland Trailblazer game on the 22nd. If he's out the full two weeks, it looks like KG would come back versus Orlando on the 28th. Assuming the latest estimate is correct (the prior estimate had KG back this coming Wednesday vs the Nets, so take a giant grain of salt here), it looks like KG would be back, but probably still rusty, when the Celtics face off against the Unbeatable Hawks and the Lakers.
