Kevin Garnett has not played since Feb. 27 due to back spasms but said Thursday that he is feeling better and expects to return soon.
“These last five days I’m feeling better,” Garnett said. “[I’m] looking forward to getting back out there. Not going to go into details and specifics, but just know that I’m getting stronger, the process is going very well.
“I had a bit of a setback when I tried to come back the other night [against Toronto], but other than that I’ve been getting stronger ever since. We’re working on some different dynamics, and it’s working for me and I look [forward] to being out [there] soon.”
Garnett is averaging 6.7 points and 6.7 rebounds this season.
“Very [frustrating],” Garnett said. “But it’s a world in which I haven’t been a part of. I’d like to think that I’ve been known for my strong back and shoulders, but it is what it is, and I’m just trying to be a student of all of it, but at the same time being smart with everything, too.”
