Rod Boone, who covers the Nets for Newsday, tweeted the following regarding Garnett's status.
Kevin Garnett remains out vs. #Wizards. Kidd sounded hopeful he may play vs. #Suns on Monday. Likely no back to backs when he returns.Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic saw the bulk of the minutes at power forward against the Heat. Plumlee had four points and four rebounds in 22 minutes, while Teletovic had 17 points and four rebounds in 16 minutes. Expect Garnett to see his normal amount of playing time upon returning, which likely means a reduction of playing time for either Plumlee or Teletovic.
