Kevin Garnett back, Wilcox and O'Neal out tonight vs OKC
According to Rotoworld, Jermaine O'Neal will sit out tonight when the Celtics take on the Thunder in Oklahoma City. O'Neal injured his wrist while taking a charge in Monday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Rookie Greg Stiemsma is expected to start in his place.
Chris Wilcox will also be out tonight after suffering a groin injury on Monday night. Even with the upcoming All-Star break, Wilcox might have to sit out a game or two after the conclusion of All-Star weekend.
Luckily, Kevin Garnett will be back after taking 2 games off to deal with a personal situation, but the Celtics' front court is looking thin, considering that Brandon Bass is also sidelined with injuries. Expect Stiemsma and JaJuan Johnson to get a lot of minutes tonight.
