Kevin Garnett (rest) is not listed on the injury report, and will play against the Jazz on Saturday.
He rested on Thursday in the second half of a back-to-back set as expected, so he should be good to go Saturday. Garnett is well past his prime, and given his limited role there is no need to consider him outside of deeper leagues. Expect Brook Lopez to slide back to the bench with this news. Jan 24 - 10:22 AM

Kevin Garnett (rest) will not play against the Clippers on Thursday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back set, so this isn't a surprise. The Nets will likely go with the double-center starting lineup with Mason Plumlee and Brook Lopez. Mirza Teletovic and Cory Jefferson could also get a few more minutes.
Jan 22 - 9:03 PM

Kevin Garnett will start on Saturday against the Wizards.

It's the second half of a back-to-back, so this is slightly unusual that he's out there. If you were planning on the other Nets big men picking up 18 minutes, you can go ahead and re-adjust those projections. Garnett is not an option in most fantasy leagues tonight.
Jan 17 - 6:24 PM

Kevin Garnett played 18 minutes against the Wizards with four points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

He was suspended on Wednesday for a head-butt of Dwight Howard and was right back to his usual workload. Garnett will sit too often and doesn't play enough minutes to be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 16 - 9:43 PM

Kevin Garnett will return to the starting lineup Friday's game against Washington after serving his one-game suspension for head-butting Dwight Howard.

Garnett's return to the starting lineup will do more to hurt the value of Brook Lopez than actually help a fantasy squad. KG already isn't a great play in standard leagues, and with a tough matchup against the Wizards tonight, he should probably be left on your bench.
Jan 16 - 5:49 PM

Kevin Garnett served his one-game suspension on Wednesday.

He should be back in the starting lineup on Friday against Washington, not that you want him in your fantasy lineup.
Jan 14 - 11:26 PM

Kevin Garnett will serve his one-game suspension on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

He was suspended for head-butting Dwight Howard on Monday and he's lucky that the NBA didn't suspend him longer. Garnett is no longer a reliable asset in most leagues due to the risk of him sitting out games in order to rest and the fact that his minutes are way down, so owners should strongly consider moving on. Brook Lopez and Mirza Teletovic figure to benefit the most in Garnett's absence on Wednesday.
Jan 14 - 9:17 AM

Kevin Garnett has been suspended for head-butting Dwight Howard during Monday's loss to the Rockets.

Garnett was ejected for the head-butt and will now miss Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies barring a successful appeal. Assuming Garnett does indeed sit on Wednesday, Mirza Teletovic would see a boost in minutes, while Brook Lopez and Mason Plumlee would see the biggest boost in fantasy value.

Kevin Garnett was ejected for head-butting Dwight Howard in the first quarter of Monday's game.

Howard and Garnett were tangled up in the paint and KG threw the ball at Howard before giving him a headbutt. There's certainly a chance that Garnett gets a suspension on from this infraction and it come as soon as Wednesday. Mirza Teletovic, Brook Lopez and Mason Plumlee will play more.
Jan 12 - 7:56 PM

Kevin Garnett played 17 minutes with two points, seven rebounds and four assists against the Pistons on Saturday.

He rested on Friday for the second time this week and the minutes just aren't there. Garnett is going to sit out too often to be worth owning in almost any league.
Jan 10 - 10:08 PM

Kevin Garnett (rest) will not suit up for Friday's game against the 76ers.

The Nets are currently in the first game of a back-to-back set, and they simply do not need Garnett going up against the 76ers. Brook Lopez will likely slide back into the starting lineup with a very favorable matchup, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues if he indeed ends up starting. Stay tuned.
Jan 9 - 5:16 PM

Kevin Garnett returned on Wednesday with 10 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Celtics.

He rested on Monday and he's likely going to rest most back-to-back sets. Garnett is doing a solid job on the glass this season, but the DNPs and low minutes make him more trouble than he's worth.
Jan 8 - 12:26 AM

Kevin Garnett (rest) will play on Wednesday against the Celtics after sitting out on Monday.

He is not listed on the injury report, and there is no way he would miss out on the chance to play his former Celtics so his owners can go ahead and activate him. Garnett will continue to sit out for one game of the team's remaining back-to-back sets which hurts his outlook, but owners in daily leagues looking for a cheap source of rebounds and blocks can give him a look. Brook Lopez will likely shift back to the bench on Wednesday.
Jan 7 - 1:12 PM

Kevin Garnett (rest) will not play on Monday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back set, so this is not a surprise. Mason Plumlee should pick up a couple more minutes while Mirza Teletovic benefits, as well.
Jan 5 - 5:43 PM

Kevin Garnett finished Sunday's 84-88 loss to the Heat with four points, seven rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes.

The revered veteran has done enough to carve out late-round value in 22 minutes per game this season, but he's a constant DNP risk due to precautionary rest. His next missed game could be as soon as Monday, when the Nets face the Mavericks in the second half of their back-to-back set.
