M*A*S*H Unit Updates

Kevin Garnett is likely to play tonight after participating in a full practice yesterday.  Though Doc cautions that they will take a cautious approach before gametime.

"I would probably put it back to 50-50, because we went up and down a little harder on purpose just to see how his body felt. If he feels good, he’ll play. If he doesn’t — even if it’s a little — he will not play."

Unfortunately it sounds like Shaq got hurt in a freak accident - which is a shame this soon after his turn-back-the-clock game against the Bobcats.

Meanwhile, Shaquille O’Neal sat out practice with a strained right abductor muscle in his right leg, sustained when slipping on ice before practice. He will be a gametime decision.

On a more positive note, Kendrick Perkins continues to show progress and has set a return date for Feb. 4.

"I’m trying to return on the Dallas game," he said. "That’s the expected date. (The doctors) said that’s cool. "I probably could come back before then, but I think we’re going to be on the road. I kind of want to make my first game a home game."

We'll keep you up to date on the latest.  Should be a good game tonight and I think the guys will be looking for some measure of revenge for the Christmas Day loss.
