Waiting To Exhale (KG Watch)

There was a game last night and while it is nice to see Sheed right on track with his first technical and to just see the team play an actual game, the most important thing is how KG's knee looked.  So far so good.  Here's KG's self assessment.  (via the Herald)

"I was like a kid in a candy store running around with his head cut off a bit out there, but it's coming," Garnett said after sitting with his right leg in a large therapeutic boot. "It felt good. Sprint-wise I'm not where I want to be, but the progress is there.

"For the most part I wasn't hesitant out there," he said. "I wanted to stay in, but that's not up to me. It's not something that's going to change overnight."

Now we still have to see how the knee reacts over the course of the preseason and into the season.  This is an excellent step in the right direction, but it is just the first of many steps.  The risk of re-injuring the leg will always be there, but hopefully at some point this season we'll be able to focus on KG's contributions more than his diagnosis.
