First of all, Kevin Garnett did practice today, so that is definitely a good sign. But the things he had to say about his injury do not inspire a lot of confidence that he will be 100% healthy in the near future. Here's some quotes from KG via ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg:
"I have some issues with my foot. More from like the motion, if you’re pushing the gas pedal. It’s an issue. If it wasn’t, I wouldn’t be out. But I am getting better. I’m going to practice today and Doc and I will have a conversation and make some decisions for the future. If I’m able [to play], if I’m strong enough and I feel like I can contribute, then yeah, other than that -- it’s all guts, it’s all grit. That’s pretty much how my makeup is. I’ve always been able to put mind over matter with certain things and then when I was unable to do common things like walk or get in my car or drive myself, then obviously that’s an issue. But other than that, I’m used to playing through a lot of different things."
The fact that Garnett has had difficulty walking and driving makes it seem much more serious than anybody let on. I also think the statement about having a "conversation" with Doc sounds rather ominous. Until today I assumed he was basically fine, and would be 100% good to go Sunday; now it's all looking rather murky.
