Kevin Garnett is gradually recovering from a right knee strain and likely will remain out for at least one more week, Celtic coach Doc Rivers said after a Friday morning shootaround.

"He ran (Thursday), he told me, on the treadmill, and he said he felt great," Rivers said of Garnett. "Other than that, that's the first day he's been able to run. We're just going to take our time. I would say at least a week, and most likely longer."

Garnett will miss games against Cleveland (tonight) and Orlando (Sunday) and is doubtful for a visit to Miami (Wednesday) and a home game against Memphis (next Friday).

After Garnett was injured Feb. 19, he was expected to be out of action for at least two weeks.
