Lee coming back is obviously good news, but it's far overshadowed by the Garnett bit. Last night on CSNNE Cedric Maxwell said that KG was limping and wearing a walking boot on his way to the team bus the other night. Not good.
At this point, the Celtics really only should have one goal in terms of seeding - Avoid #8. They're 7th right now, 2 games up on the 8th seeded Bucks, and staying ahead of them is all that really matters. The Celtics should be able to accomplish that even if KG needs some time to rest, therefore they need to shut him down until he's 100%. Once the playoffs start, Boston has absolutely no chance without Garnett, so now is the time ...
