Kevin Garnett PF/C BKN 9 Days

Kevin Garnett missed all four of his shots and failed to score in 15 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

Even if the Nets are going to try to secure the No. 5 seed, playing KG any more regular season minutes seems pointless. Look for him to sit tomorrow.

Kevin Garnett landed hard on his back during Sunday's game but returned to play 19 minutes, finishing with three points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.

KG didn't seem to favor his back after the fall, but we'll keep a close eye on his status over the next few days since he's already missed 19 games due to back spasms this season.

Kevin Garnett scored four points on 2-of-6 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 18 minutes on Friday against the Hawks.

Garnett's status is probably going to be judged on a game-to-game basis by Jason Kidd and Co., so adding him is risky territory for those deep league owners hunting big man stats.

Kevin Garnett could see a boost in minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

He played 17 minutes and had five points, eight rebounds and a season-high six dimes on Wednesday, and should see more minutes on Friday. He asked the re-enter last night's game in the fourth quarter, but Jason Kidd said no. Don't be shocked to see Garnett get between 20-25 minutes against the Hawks, which would be enough for him to possibly put up some decent numbers.

Kevin Garnett returned to action from a bad back on Wednesday and had five points, eight rebounds and six assists in 17 minutes.

He's a shell of his former self, but despite tonight's loss, the Nets are heating up and Garnett could easily be a different player in the postseason. Just don't count on much from him until the games start really counting.

Kevin Garnett will start at center against the Magic on Wednesday.

The Nets will roll with a starting lineup of Deron Williams, Alan Anderson, Joe Johnson and Mirza Teletovic to go with Garnett tonight. KG sat out on Tuesday vs. the Heat for scheduled rest, but the Nets will continue to keep his minutes low. He can be ignored everywhere and Tuesday's hero Mason Plumlee, who moves to the bench, has more fantasy value.

Kevin Garnett (back) will sit out vs. the Heat on Tuesday to avoid playing in back-to-back games.

He'll be back in uniform for Wednesday's matchup with the Magic, though he's unlikely to play much more than the 13 minutes he got in his return on Saturday. Mason Plumlee should move into the starting lineup in his absence.

Kevin Garnett (back) will not play in Friday's game against the Pistons.

It's Garnett's 19th straight game on the sideline. The Nets have gone 13-5 without him during this stretch by featuring a small lineup that includes Paul Pierce at power forward.

Nets GM Billy King said that Kevin Garnett (back spasms) could return on Friday or Saturday.

"We're targeting this weekend to get [Garnett] back playing," King said. "And then once he gets back, he'll be [playing] probably limited minutes a little bit." KG was previously thought to be targeting a return next Tuesday or Wednesday, so this is mildly encouraging, but he remains a non-factor for fantasy owners.

Kevin Garnett (back) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday night.

He's been out for over one month and the Nets haven't really missed the former MVP as they continue to climb up the Eastern Conference standings. Mason Plumlee will continue to start as Garnett heals and has put himself on the radar for owners needing a big man.
