Here's Doc Rivers' interview from today's practice. Doc talks injuries, the Knicks, and getting the Celtics back on track. Video courtesy of Mike Petraglia. Here's Ainge on Kevin Garnett's injury: "I'll guess two weeks, just because we want to make sure he's really ready" Ainge said of Garnett's recovery timeline. I think it happened in New Orleans game, it was just sore -- just inflammation. A lot of things can cause inflammation; I think everyone has a little bit of inflammation this time of year. KG, we need to get him fresh anyway."
