Kevin Garnett could return for the Celtics' final two games of the regular season. Garnett (right knee) will miss the Celtics' game against Miami Friday night, the 19th game he has missed since being injured Feb. 19.

"If we can run him 10-15 minutes, we will, if we think that will give him better rhythm," coach Doc Rivers said of Garnett's status for a Tuesday visit to Philadelphia. "For us, we'll use it as practice. Same for Leon (Powe).

Powe, recovering from a right knee strain, went through a 30-minute low-post drill with assistant coach Clifford Ray Friday morning and will participate in a full practice Monday.

Garnett, Powe, and Brian Scalabrine (cervical strain) are out for the Miami game but will travel with the team for visit to Cleveland (Sunday) and Philadelphia. The Celtics conclude the regular season against Washington next Wednesday.
