As you have probably noticed, Kevin Garnett isn't playing tonight against the Bobcats due to a strained thigh muscle and Jeff Green started in his place
According to Doc Rivers, KG isn't expected to be out any longer than one game. This is good news because we will need him Monday when the Celtics take on the Miami Heat.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters before the game that the 17-year veteran didn't look good in practice on Friday, so the team decided to sit him.
"Kevin's not playing tonight," Rivers said. "Not because it's a night off, just because he wasn't running well at practice."
When asked if he expected it to be longer, Rivers said, "No, I don't think so."
