Kevin Garnett Expected to Miss Two Weeks With Strained Calf Muscle

Danny Ainge appeared on WEEI's The Big Show earlier this afternoon and spoke at length about Kevin Garnett, who suffered a "lower right leg" injury against the Detroit Pistons last night. Ainge stated that Garnett is dealing with a calf injury and not a knee injury - most likely a strained calf, and he will most likely miss two weeks. 

"Kevin had an MRI and a thorough examination today and it's the same as last night. It's just a muscle - I say just - but it's a muscle injury, a strained calf...It's actually the muscle (on the) softer side of the legs below the knee, and it's not anything to do with his knee, which is great news. It's one of those injuries that he may be out for a couple of weeks at the most I would say...I'll just say two weeks and that's on a very conservative side." 

Cue the biggest sigh of relief perhaps of my entire life. Hallelujah.
