Celtics forward Kevin Garnett is heading back to Boston to be checked out by the team doctor after injuring his right knee against the Utah Jazz.
Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said Garnett was traveling Friday,
and his right knee strain was expected to be examined by Dr. Brian
McKeon on Saturday.
Garnett injured his knee while going up for an alley-oop late in
the first half of Boston's 90-85 loss. He landed gingerly and
motioned immediately to the bench for a substitute, then hopped on
his good foot toward the locker room.
Twiss said Garnett was "not in tremendous pain" on Friday, but
that the knee remained sore and stiff and the Celtics thought it
best to be cautious and have Garnett examined.
