KG: SURGERY SET FOR NEXT WEEK

Written by 
Boston.com reported today that Kevin Garnett has set a date for surgery next week. Garnett will have surgery for the first time in his career to remove a bone spur in his right knee. He had postponed the surgery in hopes that continued rehabilitation on the knee would have allowed him to return to action had the Celtics reached the latter rounds of the playoffs.Danny Ainge and owner, Wyc Grousbeck said today that Garnett was expected to be back at full strength next season. Doc Rivers reported on WEEI's "Dennis and Callahan Show" that Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kendrick Perkins all suffered from injuries in the Orlando series.Pierce may require surgery on bone spurs while Perkins may require a procedure on his shoulder. Ray Allen suffered from a strained hamstring.Boston.com reports that surgery maybe required by Perkins and Pierce but nothing has been confirmed.Doc also indicated that the Celtics need to make some off season "additions". Rivers said, "We need to improve our team. There's no doubt about that. We don't have to make any changes but we do need to make some additions."Doc also sounded less encouraging regarding Glen Davis saying, "with Baby, it will probably come down to what he can get on the open market", regarding Marbury Doc said, "With Steph it will probably come down to what we can get on the open market".It would disappointing to see Stephon Marbury leave but losing Big Baby would be a blow deeper then losing James Posey last summer. More details to follow...
