Just a week after suffering a right calf strain, Kevin Garnett returned to the court today at the Celtics' practice facility in Waltham to take some jumpers. Garnett wore his customary practice uniform and tights covering his legs but there was no brace or protection for the calf.
Garnett spent about 15 minutes taking his customary elbow shots after working out in the team's exercise gym.
"I got nothing for you man," Garnett said when asked to comment. "Besides Happy Holidays."
Garnett was expected to miss two weeks when he strained the calf Dec. 29 leaping for an alley-oop pass. It is uncertain when he will return but such a rapid return to basketball activities is a good sign for Garnett and the Celtics.
