Sore knee prompts Garnett to sit vs. Bucks
Garnett, who dealt with pain in his knee last season, was being rested as a precaution, according to head coach Dwane Casey.
Bucks point guard T.J. Ford, who missed the last 1½ seasons with a spinal injury, didn't make the trip to Minnesota because of a sprained left index finger. He hurt the finger in practice and was expected to have an MRI performed this week. Forward Joe Smith also didn't suit up with pain in his left knee.
