Stomach virus still has Nets veteran Kevin Garnett sidelined
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/21/14) Nets forward Kevin Garnett was sidelined again during Monday's preseason game against the 76ers due to a stomach virus. The illness is also expected to keep Garnett out of Wednesday's preseason finale against the Celtics, per the New York Post.
"I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits," coach Lionel Hollins said with a smile, "But he’s been sick … sick enough to the point where he’s not playing."
The Celtics open the season Oct. 29 against Boston. Garnett should have enough time to recover before the season opener.

|(10/17/14) Nets forward Kevin Garnett sat out of Friday's practice due to a stomach illness, according to the New York Daily News.
Garnett should be able to return to the lineup shortly. The 38-year-old averaged 6.5 points per game last season.
Nets coach expecting more playing time for Kevin Garnett
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/7/14) Nets coach Lionel Hollins has said veteran center Kevin Garnett is going to play more minutes and have a bigger role in 2014-15 than he had last season. However, Garnett is hesitant to agree with his coach, according to the New York Post.
"Talking about [more] minutes and then actually [what happens] is probably going to be two different things," Garnett said. "Obviously, I’m trying to keep my body to the point where I can hold up. Eighty-two games plus postseason is very, very difficult on your body. I’m just taking it one day at a time, so we’ll see."
Last season, former coach Jason Kidd had planned to rest Garnett during one of the two games during their 20 back-to-back contests and also limit him to around 20 minutes per game to have him ready for the playoffs. Garnett seemed to struggle with the minutes restrictions, so Hollins said the restrictions will not be in place this season.
"I do expect him to play more," Hollins said. "He’s been in great shape, mentally he’s very sharp, and we’d like to see him contribute more than 18-20 minutes per game."
Nets C Kevin Garnett taking an aggressive approach this season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/30/14) After a disappointing 2013-14 campaign where he averaged a career-low 6.5 points per game on 44.1 percent from the floor, Nets center Kevin Garnett told reporters he's ready to be more aggressive this season, according to the Record.
"This year, I'm coming in with a little more edge, a little more assertiveness," Garnett said, who is entering the final season of his contract. "Kind of [reverting] back to how I came into this league and what I've created for myself. I'm being a lot more aggressive."
Nets resting entire starting lineup
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/14) The Nets will be without their entire starting lineup for Wednesday's finale in Cleveland, though health is not a big concern heading into the playoffs. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are getting the night off to rest before the postseason starts, while Joe Johnson (calf), Deron Williams (knee) and Shaun Livingston (toe) are all receiving treatment for minor injuries.
|The seemingly ageless Kevin Garnett's seemed to catch up to him all at once last season, ashe struggled through the worst season of his career. He averaged just 6.5 points per game on just 44.1 percent shooting, by far the worst marks of his career. He added just 6.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists to his total, both of which are his worst numbers since he was a rookie. Garnett was hobbled for much of the season and ended up played in a career-low 54 games as well. Garnett is returning to the Nets for the final year of his contract, but it is hard to see him bouncing back. After a long run as one of the NBA's best players, Garnett can probably be ignored in all Fantasy formats on Draft Day.
