Celtics president Danny Ainge said early this morning that injured forward Kevin Garnett will be out 2-3 weeks with a posterior muscle strain of the right knee. The All-Star suffered the injury during the second quarter of Thursday's loss at Utah.
"Rest and ice for KG," Ainge said.
The Celtics could be interested in free agent forward/center Mikki Moore, who clears waivers on Monday after being cut by Sacramento, and Oklahoma City forward Joe Smith if he is ever waived.
On free agents, Ainge said: "Nothing new."
