Kevin Garnett PF/C BKN 5 Days

Garnett will miss his first game of the season Saturday as scheduled rest, the New York Post reports.

The Nets are on the final leg of a back-to-back which is why Garnett will be given time off. As a result, Miles Plumlee, Mirza Teletovic, and Jerome Jordan will likely see more time on the court.

Garnett scored 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT), with 10 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Suns.

Garnett racked up a double-double during the loss, and had a productive night. He's a pretty consistent power forward in most fantasy leagues, but won't post any massive numbers in the near future more than likely.

Garnett was plenty effective on Sunday, finishing with eight points, eight rebounds, seven assists, and a steal in 28 minutes.

In his later years, the aging Garnett isn'e leaned on heavily by his teams to put up the numbers that he used to. As a result he doesn't play heavy minutes and is usually rested heavily throughout the season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. While it is encouraging to see him still able to put up versatile numbers, he remains only an option for those looking for rebounding in deeper leagues.

Garnett had 18 points (7-15 FG, 4-4 FT) and 14 rebounds in 35 minutes in the win over the Pistons on Saturday.

Garnett had just 10 points and six rebounds in the opener, but stepped into the time machine against the Pistons. He helped get Andre Drummond in foul trouble, but fantasy owners should not expect these kind of numbers from the 20-year veteran.

Garnett (illness) started Wednesday and scored 10 points (5-8 FG) to go with 6 rebounds and 3 assist in 23 minutes of action.

KG had battled a particularly nasty stomach bug during the preseason, however he looked to be over that in the regular season debut. Garnett's 23 minutes are about what we should expect out of the 38 year-old, but it was a bit surprising he did not get a little more run with fellow big man Brook Lopez (foot) out. This illustrates that his age might be the biggest limiting factor on his fantasy production this season.

Garnett (illness) will miss the Nets' preseason finale Wednesday against the Celtics, the New York Post reports.

Garnett is battling a stomach virus that has kept him out of action for more than a week since the Nets returned from China. With the regular season not set to begin until next Wednesday, however, Garnett's absence is nothing to worry about, as it affords the veteran extra rest, if nothing else. Once healthy, Garnett is expected to open the season as the starting power forward under new coach Lionel Hollins.

Garnett (illness) will miss Monday's game against the 76ers, the Wall Street Journal's Alex Raskin reports.

The stomach virus continues to sideline Garnett, but the team likely doesn't mind him sitting out preseason games, given the miles on his body. We would expect him to be ready for the start of the regular season, but it's something to keep an eye on.

Garnett continues to deal with a stomach virus and will be held out of Sunday's game against the Celtics, the New York Daily News reports.

Garnett's issue with a stomach virus has lingered longer than most originally thought it would, but even so, it's not a type of illness that should affect him in the long term. His next opportunity to hit the court will be Monday against the 76ers.

Garnett (illness) missed practice Saturday, ESPN New York's Mike Mazzeo reports.

This was his second straight practice missed with a stomach virus, but it's unlikely to affect his status for the regular season.

Garnett was unable to practice Friday with a stomach virus, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports.

Garnett has stayed injury free this preseason and this absence should hardly scare away potential owners of the aging veteran. He'll likely return to the court in the near future but will be a game-time decision for Sunday's preseason contest against the Celtics.
