Nets' Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett starting in opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Nets point guard Deron Williams (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (illness) are in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Celtics.

Williams underwent surgery on both ankles during the offseason. Garnett dealt with a stomach virus late in the preseason. The pair will be joined by Joe Johnson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Mason Plumlee in the starting lineup.


Stomach virus still has Nets veteran Kevin Garnett sidelined


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) 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.


Nets' Kevin Garnett sits due to stomach illness


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Nets forward Kevin Garnett sat out of Friday's practice due to a stomach illness, according to the New York Daily News.

Nets coach expecting more playing time for Kevin Garnett


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) 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."

"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."
