According to Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears, "Celtics Kevin Garnett won't receive suspension or fine for physical incident with Knicks Billy Walker, NBA says."

Sherrod Blakely from Comcast Sports Net New England says that Pietrus will not be joining the team in Miami, and Pierce is still a question mark. So the lack of a KG suspension is music to any Celtics' fans ears.

Kevin Garnett Put His Hand on Bill Walker’s Throat, but He Likely Won’t be Punished

Kevin Garnett wasted little time showing his midseason form. And by midseason form, we don’t mean putting up strong stats for the Celtics; we mean being a ******* on the court.

Garnett...
