Kevin Garnett will not have surgery on his ankle/foot

He will look to get rest on it this offseason.

While we still don't have any word on Kevin Garnett's status for next year, we do know that his doctors have said that rest is the better option to surgery on his ankle/foot.

Rest assured, no surgery for KG | Boston Herald

President of basketball operations Danny Ainge reports that Garnett will not go under the knife to deal with bone spurs and other issues.

"I think there was some question whether he was going to have surgery on his foot," said Ainge. "but the last I heard, which was a few days ago, is that he won't need surgery."

I think that sounds like good news, but I have to admit I don't know enough about the condition of bone spurs to know. It seems to me that you'd want those buggers out of there but perhaps it isn't worth having surgery and months (or whatever) of rehab when the issue might just go away on its own. We'll see.
