Garnett will rest against the Sixers on Friday so that he can be available for Saturday's game against the Pistons, the New York Post reports.

Garnett usually sits out the back end of back-to-back games, although it makes far more sense for him to sit against the easier opponent, the Sixers, than the Pistons on Saturday. Just like every other instance this season, Garnett is expected to take on a full workload Saturday.

Garnett (rest) returned to the court Friday and managed to post nine points, six rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 18 minutes of action as a starter.

Garnett is at the point in his career where he'll rarely be playing in both games in a back-to-back situation. That was the case Tuesday as he sat to rest against the Bulls, but the 38-year-old should be available moving forward for Sunday's contest against the Heat.

Garnett will not play Tuesday in the second game of a back-to-back, the New York Post's Tim Bontemps reports.

Brook Lopez will get the start at center next to Mason Plumlee, but Mirza Teletovic will also see extended run with Garnett out. Look for Garnett to be back in the starting lineup Friday.

Garnett (rest) scored 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with seven rebounds and four assists in the loss to Cleveland on Friday. He played 30 minutes, his most since Nov. 19.

Garnett took the Wednesday loss to the Raptors off because it was the second game of a back-to-back set. He has grabbed at least seven rebounds in eight of his last nine games, but he doesn't score enough to be a good fantasy player in deeper leagues.

Garnett will be available Friday night against the Cavs, Rod Boone of Newsday reports.

After sitting out Wednesday's game, Garnett should be rested enough to play the 20 plus minutes he averages. Teammate Mirza Teltovic (hip) will also play, so do not expect any extra playing time or spectacular games from Garnett Friday.

Garnett will not play Wednesday, the New York Post's Kevin Garnett reports.

Garnett has been getting rested in the second game of back-to-backs this season, so this does not come as a surprise after the Nets played Tuesday. Mirza Teletovic will get the start at power forward.

Garnett has not been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, the second game in as many nights for the Nets, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

The news here is that the Nets appear ready to allow the veteran to play in his first back-to-back set since mid-November. He's missed the latter half of the team's last three back-to-backs, most recently sitting Saturday against Charlotte after playing 22 minutes in a win over Philadelphia on Friday. Garnett logged 21 minutes against the Heat on Tuesday, grabbing 10 rebounds to go with four points. At this point, it's not a guarantee that he plays, but the fact that he's not listed as "out" or "doubtful" as of Wednesday morning is encouraging.

Garnett (foot) returned to action Tuesday, putting up four points (2-6 FG), 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 21 minutes.

Garnett sat out the Nets' last game to rest his foot on the second night of a back-to-back. With the Nets playing another game Wednesday, there remains an outside chance Garnett could be rested again or at least have his minutes limited. Coming into Tuesday's game, Garnett was averaging 7.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 0.9 steals in 24 minutes per game. Those numbers aren't good enough to roster in anything but deeper leagues.

Garnett (foot) will not play Saturday against the Hornets, the New York Post reports.

Garnett was able to play 22 minutes Friday, but it seems the Nets don't want to push their luck and play him on back-to-back nights just yet. Coach Lionel Hollins said either Cory Jefferson or Jerome Jordan will start in his absence.
