UPDATE: After having said pre-game that Kevin Garnett will return to the lineup, Kidd has scratched KG a few moments before the start of the game in place of Mason Plumlee. This will be his sixth straight miss.

The bad news, though, is that Andrei Kirilenko will NOT play because of an ankle sprain. He is listed as day-to-day.
