Kevin Garnett Not Playing Back-to-Backs?
You might want to count out Kevin Garnett for about a quarter of the season.
After Garnett admitted he seriously contemplated retirement this summer, the 37-year-old will “probably” not play in back-to-back games next season, according to Nets coach Jason Kidd.
The Nets have 20 sets of back-to-backs, including a Rockets-Knicks combo in April.
“We’ve talked about it that there’s going to be (minutes restrictions). When you look at KG, probably no back-to-backs for him,” Kidd said Friday following press conference to announce the renovation of Nassau Coliseum. “Those are just topics we’re talking about, throwing around to keep these guy’s minutes down because we are deep. …you want to be fresh going into the playoffs.”
