Kevin Garnett (strained adductor) did not participate in shootaround on Monday, and he'll be a "game-time decision" against the Heat.

Celtics beat writers don't seem optimistic that Garnett will play, but he's officially a game-time call. Miami will go for their 23rd straight win, and if the Celtics have to play without Kevin Garnett, it's going to be tough to slow down the Heat. If Garnett sits out, we'd expect Jeff Green to again draw the start at power forward with Brandon Bass sliding to center. Green had 10 points, five boards, four assists and two turnovers in 30.5 minutes when starting for Garnett on Saturday.
