MIAMI — Kevin Garnett will not play tonight against the Heat, and Ray Allen will be a gametime decision.
While Garnett will miss his second game with an abdominal strain, Allen’s status is in question because he’s been suffering with a flu bug and missed the Celtics’ morning shootaround. It is hoped that, with the extra rest, he’ll be able to play tonight, but the team couldn’t say for certain.
Garnett, meanwhile, went to shootaround and did some conditioning away from the court. According to Doc Rivers, he is improving but is still not nearly a sure bet to return by Thursday’s home game against Dallas.
KG Out, Ray Allen TBD
