KG wants fresh mind, healthy body
Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett, sidelined for the past seven games due to inflammation in his left ankle, expressed a desire to be as healthy and mentally refreshed as possible heading into the postseason.
Speaking Thursday with Celtics broadcast partner Comcast SportsNet, Garnett said he'll be ready to go full throttle regardless of his health by the time the playoffs arrive.
"Obviously, everybody wants a rhythm going into the playoffs. I'm no different than that," said Garnett. "I want to be as healthy as I can. Everybody's dealing with something at this time of year, and I'm no different from that. I just want to be strong. I want my mind fresh, I want to be as strong and as healthy as I can be, and go at this thing 1,000 percent. Nothing less than that."
Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Thursday that Garnett could be back on the floor as early as Sunday's visit from the Washington Wizards.
