OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — All-Star forward Kevin Garnett is returning to the Boston Celtics lineup after missing two games for personal reasons.
Coach Doc Rivers says Garnett will play Wednesday night when the Celtics visit Oklahoma City. Boston will be without starting point guard Rajon Rondo, who is serving the second and final game of a suspension.
The Celtics are also without forward Brandon Bass (knee) and centers Jermaine O’Neal (wrist) and Chris Wilcox (thigh) due to injuries.
Rivers says Garnett is likely to play mostly at center because of the injuries.
