8 a.m. ET: Kevin Garnett will be the only Celtics player on the court this weekend, and no, that’s not because he will be the only one still healthy. Garnett is the Celtics’ lone representative at All-Star weekend this year, as Rajon Rondo, who was due to start at point guard for the East, is out with a torn ACL in his right knee and Paul Pierce was left off the roster. But before Garnett heads to Houston, he and the Celtics (27-24) have one more regular-season contest on the docket. The Bulls (30-21) have scored two wins in three tries so far this season, most recently in an overtime contest that went down to the wire. After pushing as high as third in the Eastern Conference without Derrick Rose, the Bulls have had some rough times recently. They have lost four of their last six and are coming off a tough loss to the Spurs, who were missing Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Stephen Jackson. The Celtics’ situation is even more dire. They had their seven-game win streak snapped in Monday’s loss to Charlotte, but more importantly they lost another player to a season-ending injury. Leandro Barbosa suffered a torn left ACL in the third quarter of that game, leaving the already reeling Celtics even thinner in the backcourt. Join us for updates and analysis from the TD Garden during the game, which tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
