Doc Rivers said Thursday that there’s a strong possibility that Kevin Garnett could miss the entire postseason and the Celtics will have to move on and defend their title without him according to ESPN.”He’s not going to be ready. After watching him practice, there’s no way,” Rivers said on WEEI-AM. “The way I saw him move today, I don’t know if he’ll be ready.”

Rivers watched Garnett run at the team’s practice facility and said he had to shut him down after 20 minutes.
“If he can’t get through biking and working out without swelling and his leg locking, I don’t know how you can play in the playoffs,” Rivers said. “This was an honest run today, you couldn’t make your way through it. The guy’s a warrior, you see him try to mask his way through it. But after 20 minutes of running, I don’t see it. After today, there’s no way he can play.”

If the Celtics adance in the playoffs, the Cavaliers could face them in the Eastern Conference finals.
