Tim Bontemps, who covers the Nets for the New York Post, tweeted the following on Garnett's status
Barring a setback, all indications are Kevin Garnett will play tomorrow in Philadelphia.Since Garnett hasn't played in nearly a month and a half, expect his minutes to be in the low teens. Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic have seen the majority of the minutes at power forward in Garnett's absence. Plumlee had three points in 12 minutes against the Pistons, while Teletovic had 20 points on 7-of-11 from the floor, including 6-of-10 from three-point range. Expect Plumlee's playing time to decrease upon Garnett's return.
