Kevin Garnett Injury Status Upgraded For Wednesday's Game

(SB Nation Boston, Jay King) Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett participated in the team's Wednesday morning shoot-around and has been upgraded from doubtful to probable for Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons.

Garnett missed Tuesday's practice with a hip flexor that Doc Rivers said was not serious, and trainer Ed Lacerte initially suggested to Rivers that Garnett could miss two to three days.

Mickael Pietrus (knee) likewise returned to the court for shoot-around after missing Tuesday's practice. Pietrus, who had been doubtful for Wednesday, said "of course" he's going to play. But Rivers did not seem quite so positive.

Jermaine O'Neal also called himself good to go for Wednesday. The center (sore shoulder) missed Sunday's home victory against the Chicago Bulls, but returned to practice Tuesday. Though admitting Tuesday he is not yet 100 percent, O'Neal noted that players have to play through injuries, especially during this condensed season.
