Garnett Suffers Strained Calf Muscle, To Miss Several Weeks

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett has a strained right calf muscle and is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks.

Garnett was injured late in the first quarter of last night's loss at Detroit.  He came down hobbling after a dunk and left the game.

An M-R-I this afternoon revealed no injury to his surgically repaired knee.  Celts President Danny Ainge told WEEI radio that Garnett's injury was a strained right calf muscle. 

Ainge went on to say that KG will miss up to a couple of weeks at the most to be conservative.

The Celts host the Hornets tomorrow at 3:00 at the Garden.  Rajon Rondo hopes to play for the first time in six games after nursing a sprained ankle.
