Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said that the team will be taking it slow with Kevin Garnett’s recovery from knee surgery. “Kevin looks good, he’s in here working out every day. He’s doing his training, but he’s not playing full-court basketball yet,” said Ainge. “He’s anxious and he has a ton of energy, but I think he gets it…He’s on the program with the staff.”
Garnett will be expected to miss the first portion of the season and will take it day to day from there. With the recent acquisition of swingman Marquis Daniels in addition to the slew of moves Ainge has made this off-season, the Celtics will most definitely be competitive heading into their 2009-2010 campaign. Boston is scheduled to introduce the new roster to the TD Banknorth Garden during their preseason match up against the New York Knicks October 9th.
