Pregame notes: Kevin Garnett a go, LeBron James taunts Terry, DJ White signed

A few notes before tipoff.

Garnett's a go vs. Hornets tonight, and other Celtics shootaround notes -Celtics blog - Boston Globe basketball news

The Celtics returned to the court Wednesday for the first time since losing that tight game to the Miami Heat on Monday, and they received a welcome addition with a nearly clean-shaven Kevin Garnett, who will play tonight against the New Orleans Hornets. Garnett missed the past two games with a strained left adductor (thigh) muscle and also flu-like symptoms but he returned this morning for a shootaround refreshed and ready to go.

Asked about his monster dunk over Celts guard Jason Terry, James didn’t hesitate to slam Terry once again, ranking the dunk as one of his favorites. “I’ve had a chance to (review) it and it was one of my better ones,” James told reporters at the Heat’s morning shootaround. “The fact that it happened to J.T. made it that much sweeter because we all know J.T. and he talks too much sometimes. “I’m glad it happened to him.”

Green Street » Celtics sign D.J. White for remainder of season

The Celtics announced “a multi-year contract” with White, and while terms of the deal were not disclosed, it’s likely the team owns an option for the 2013-14 season — much like the contract Terrence Williams signed earlier this month. The next domino to fall should be Shavlik Randolph, whose second 10-day contract expires on Thursday.
