Green will remain a starter, Garnett aiming for Sunday return

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

With the playoffs only a few weeks away and some jockeying to do in the standings, Doc Rivers has been trying to round out the rotation as the team gets whole.

This shouldn't be a huge surprise with how well Jeff Green has been playing since the All Star break, but Doc Rivers has made JG a starter:

With Garnett looking at a return to the parquet on Sunday against the Wizards, what will the starting lineup look like? With the rash of injuries that have ravaged the team of late, Doc's been able to experiment with several lineups and over the last five games, he's run with a bigger lineup that included Avery Bradley, Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, and Chris Wilcox. Garnett presumably will replace Wilcox when he comes back, but does Green supplant Bass at power forward or will Courtney Lee be benched in favor of Pierce at the two? Green and Pierce have been deadly together and my guess is that Doc will continue to lean on that dynamic duo.

UPDATE:

Looks like it's Lee going to bench. That's gives us a lot of guard fire power in Lee, Jason Terry, and Crawford and makes Wilcox and Randolph the back up bigs.
