Date:

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

He probably won't be back until next week. Gorgui Dieng is getting huge minutes and that should continue going forward. Leave Garnett on the wire in all leagues.
Feb 8 - 3:37 PM

Kevin Garnett recently praised interim coach Sam Mitchell and his staff for the job they've done this season.

"I feel real good about the progression of this team since Day 1, and I think it needs to be said and needs to be understood that I’m endorsing Sam Mitchell and our coaching staff and this organization," Garnett said. KG's words carry weight in the organization, but that may not prevent a coaching change at the end of the season.
Feb 8 - 9:16 AM

Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful to play Monday vs. the Pelicans.

Neither guy is a major part of the rotation, and both can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng will continue to earn minutes in the high-30s as Minnesota's starting power forward with both Garnett and Big Pek out.
Feb 7 - 3:12 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

He is not close to a return and is likely out through the break. Garnett can be ignored in all leagues.
Feb 6 - 6:38 PM

Kevin Garnett (leg) is doubtful to play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

Garnett isn't close to making a return, so plan on him being out tomorrow. Gorgui Dieng will continue to start, and needs to be owned in all leagues.
Feb 5 - 7:44 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is not close to a return.

Coach Sam Mitchell said he likes the rotation as is. That means Gorgui Dieng should be locked in to the starting lineup. His scoring is way up, but Dieng's blocks have fallen off. He should be owned in all leagues.
Feb 5 - 2:33 PM

Kevin Garnett will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

The Wolves should probably do us all a favor and rule him out to the break. Garnett can be ignored in all leagues.
Feb 3 - 9:11 PM

Kevin Garnett (right knee) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He is probably not going to play, which puts Gorgui Dieng in the starting lineup. Garnett can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Feb 3 - 2:39 PM

Kevin Garnett (leg) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Garnett said that it's his right leg, and not specifically his right knee that has been bothering him, but he added that it's been feeling better and he expects to get back on the court "soon." His next opportunity to play will come Wednesday vs. the Clippers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. However, Garnett is only playing 14.7 minutes per game this season, so there's no reason to own him in any league.
Feb 2 - 3:29 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee), Nikola Pekovic (sore foot) and Kevin Martin (wrist) are all considered doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

To be clear, KG isn't going to play. The 39-year-old veteran is a shut-down candidate and plays minutes in the teens when he is active, so he can be ignored in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng is a must-own player.
Feb 1 - 7:45 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) and Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Blazers.

This will be Garnett's fourth straight game on the shelf and the Wolves won't be in any hurry to rush him back. Gorgui Dieng has been playing really well as the starting power forward, so he should benefit the most on Sunday.
Jan 31 - 7:44 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

The Wolves will not let the 39-year-old veteran play at less than 100 percent, so don't expect to see him out there. Coach Sam Mitchell has finally freed Gorgui Dieng, so he is a must-start player until further notice.
Jan 30 - 6:13 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Jazz as expected.

A 39-year-old veteran dealing with a sore knee is not good, so expect KG to miss more time. Gorgui Dieng exploded for 21 points and nine boards in his last game, so he should benefit the most in KG's absence.
Jan 29 - 1:07 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

Garnett did not practice on Thursday, and it's looking like he'll spend his third straight game on the sidelines on Friday. Gorgui Dieng started on Wednesday with Garnett out, tallying 21 points, nine rebounds, one steal and a block over 27 minutes, so he's the primary beneficiary with KG out.
