Probably wise considering we won't likely need him for that game. Herald
Asked if Garnett would play if this a Game 7, Rivers replied, “If this was Game 1 of the playoffs, he may be (playing). But it’s not, so we want to make sure when that does come he’s ready.”
It’s more than likely Garnett will miss tomorrow night’s home game against Oklahoma City, as well.
“We’re just going to go day by day,” Rivers said. “I would say that because of this, sitting him down, I would probably say if we’re going to do it we’re going to do it more than one game, but I’m not sure yet. If he feels great (today), then (tomorrow) comes back into play. But I don’t know. There’s no reason to take a chance.
