Kevin Garnett (knee, illness) is doubtful to make his return on Monday vs. Utah.

Garnett has been sick for almost a week and hasn't been able to eat, so he hasn't even been able to get on the floor to test his injured knee. Without him, Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Gorgui Dieng (concussion-like symptoms) in the lineup, Justin Hamilton and Adreian Payne will be spending a ton of time on the floor.

Kevin Garnett (illness, knee) will not play Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

Garnett has reportedly been sick for the past four days, and unable to eat, so he'll remain on the sidelines for Sunday's game. With Garnett unavailable, Gorgui Dieng will continue to get all the run he can handle, while Andreian Payne will see his minutes in the 20s. Anthony Bennett will return to action today, so he'll also have the opportunity to get into the rotation, although his minutes will likely be very limited after spending the past month on the sidelines.

Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

Why don't they just rule him out? He has yet to play in a road game with the Wolves this season and it would be a shock to see him suit up. The Wolves traded away Thaddeus Young to get Garnett. He can be dropped everywhere.

Kevin Garnett (illness, knee) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

He has been ill for five days and is not at the arena. Garnett could be out for the season with some sort of soreness in his knee, so keep him on the wire. Justin Hamilton could play more, but he may still be dealing with a head issue.
Mar 27 - 6:51 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play Friday vs. Houston.

It's a road game, so it's very likely Garnett will be wearing a suit on Friday. Expect Gorgui Dieng to get all the run he can handle, with Adreian Payne seeing his minutes in the 20s. Garnett belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 26 - 4:48 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play on Wednesday.

He hasn't played since Mar. 7 and the move to acquire him for Thaddeus Young is making less sense by the day because the team has said it's not tanking. Justin Hamilton benefits most while Adreian Payne could play more, too. Garnett could be dropped everywhere, obviously.
Mar 25 - 6:55 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

Garnett has been out since March 7, and he remains without an official timetable to return. At this point in his career, Garnett belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 24 - 5:27 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Monday.

He's been out since Mar. 7 and has yet to play in a road game since joining the Wolves. Garnett can be dropped everywhere.
Mar 23 - 7:39 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Monday.

It's a road game, so Garnett is almost a lock to not play for his one. With KG and a slew of others out in the frontcourt, expect Gorgui Dieng to be very busy. Plus, Adreian Payne and Chase Budinger will get some extra run.
Mar 23 - 2:22 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is questionable to play on Monday vs. Utah.

There is just no incentive to play Garnett right now, and it doesn't sound like he's close to returning since we never got an update on his second opinion after he was examined last week. Adreian Payne, who is averaging 8.7 points and 6.7 rebounds as a starting power forward, should once again get the call.

Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

The Wolves have no reason to play Garnett at less than 100 percent, and we wouldn't count on Garnett playing on Monday vs. the Jazz either. Adreian Payne will draw the start again, but Chase Budinger has emerged as the primary beneficiary off the bench for the Wolves.
Mar 22 - 6:26 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is questionable to play for Sunday against the Hornets.

He has been questionable for each of the last four games and hasn't played in any of them. Garnett hasn't played on the road yet, but he does have a small chance to play on Sunday. Regardless, keep him on the wire. If he does play, Chase Budinger and Adreian Payne would lose some minutes.
Mar 21 - 6:38 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play Thursday vs. the Knicks.

This marks Garnett's fifth consecutive game on the sidelines, and he remains without a clear timetable to return. With Garnett, Justin Hamilton (illness), and Nikola Pekovic (ankle), all unavailable tonight, Gorgui Dieng and Adreian Payne will be forced into heavy minutes.
Mar 19 - 6:25 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is questionable to play Thursday vs. the Knicks.

If Garnett is again unable to go on Thursday, it will be his fifth consecutive game on the sidelines. Adreian Payne will be the primary beneficiary if Garnett is unable to go, and he's worth a look as a streamer option in deep leagues. Stay tuned.
