Description: Nets forward Kevin Garnett will get some additional rest and not play on Wednesday.
Insight: With the Nets playing the second game of a back-to-back Wednesday, Garnett will sit. Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic will benefit.

Description: Nets forward Kevin Garnett will get some additional rest and not play on Saturday.
Insight: Garnett is averaging 23.9 minutes per game this season, but played 31 minutes on Wednesday in the triple-overtime loss to Milwaukee. Being Saturday is the second game of a back-to-back, the Nets have decided to rest Garnett.

Description: Nets forward Kevin Garnett pleased his limited fantasy owners with 11 rebounds on Wednesday, but he scored just two points.
Insight: Garnett has been playing more minutes than fans expected. He played 25, which is more on pace with expectations, on Wednesday amd grabbed 11 rebounds, but shot just 1-for-7 from the field. He is only fantasy relevant in very deep leagues.

Description: Nets forward Kevin Garnett found the fountain of youth on Saturday against the Pistons.
Insight: Garnett played 35 minutes and made 7-of-15 shots to score 18 points. He was a perfect 4-for-4 at the free-throw line. Garnett also had 14 rebounds, two steals and one block.
 
10/18/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Nets coach Lionel Hollins told The New York Post he expects Kevin Garnett to play more than 20 minutes per game
Insight: We have our doubts, considering the 20-year-pro averaged just 20.6 minutes per game last season. He also averaged 6.5 points and 6.6 rebounds in 2013-2014. Garnett is, at best, a late-round flier.

Insight: Garnett (6.5 ppg, 6.6 rpg) would be leaving $12 million on the table if he chose to retire. It's clear KG doesn't have much left in the tank but he can probably make it through at least one more season.

Insight: Garnett barely played in the second half, sitting out 19 games because of back spasms. Mason Plumlee (7.4 ppg, 4.4 rpg) and Andray Blatche (11.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg) are both better fantasy options than KG at this point.

Insight: Back spasms have cost Garnett (6.7 ppg, 6.7 rpg) eight games in a row. The 21 mpg he's logging this season is a career-low. Garnett's return would push rookie Mason Plumlee (6.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) back to the bench.

3/11/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Nets center Kevin Garnett was a last minute scratch Monday and has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Heat, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
