Kevin Garnett out, Joe Johnson a game-time decision

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Joe Johnson, who missed practice due to personal reasons, is a game-time decision for tonight's game against the 76ers. Kevin Garnett will sit this one out due to rest.

Monday, against the Sixers, Johnson exploded for 37 points, 29 of them scored in the third quarter. He was a game-time decision for that game as well with a cold. Jason Kidd didn't announce who would start for Johnson, but it seems that Paul Pierce may get the nod. Kidd said that it is a "possibility that (Pierce) probably does start" with Johnson out tonight.

For Garnett, it is up in the air who starts, but Mirza Teletovic and Andray Blatche are the two likely candidates. Teletovic started at power forward for the Nets Monday night in the teams victory over Philly.

Andrei Kirilenko and Jason Terry will also be out of this game, but both were working out at the team's practice facility yesterday. Rod Boone of Newsday believes that Terry might be out for even more time, noting that it has been a slow rehab process for him.

Kirilenko said he hoped to be back before the team heads west at the end of the month, starting in Indiana on December 28.
