KG Out Tonight Against Mavs

Marc Spears Reports on

The Celtics will be without the services of forward Kevin Garnett, who will miss his third straight game tonight against the Dallas Mavericks because of an abdominal strain.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers says he didn't know when Garnett will return to the court. When asked if he would play Tuesday in Cleveland, Rivers said he didn't know.

This is kind of unfortunate since there are only so many of these "barometer" games in a season.  I was looking forward to the Dirk/KG match-up, but it obviously doesn't make any sense to risk Garnett's health on a regular season game.  It appears Ray Allen will be back in the line-up though and the bench has played well as of late so there's hope.
