Nets' Garnett, Kirilenko could return within week
MAR 30, 2014 6:20p ET
Garnett has missed 16 straight games with back spasms, last playing Feb. 27 in a victory at Denver. The Nets have games next Friday and Saturday nights, then visit Miami on April 8 and Orlando the following night.
Coach Jason Kidd has said he doesn't think it's necessary that Garnett plays again in the regular season and would be fine if the veteran's next appearance is in the playoffs.
