Today, Boston Celtics big man Kevin Garnett celebrates his 37th birthday. A couple of days ago, he may have received an early birthday present in the form of good news from the Celtics medical staff.
Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald tweeted this on Friday with reference to the rumor that Garnett would require ankle surgery this off-season:
Kevin Garnett will not need surgery on his foot/ankle. Medical staff thinks rest will solve the problem.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) May 17, 2013 This news did not answer the question of whether or not Garnett will be returning to the Celtics for next season or if he will choose to retire. CLNS Radio will have updates on this news as it becomes available.
