Kevin Garnett has missed 10 straight games due to back spasms, and he is already ruled out for Friday night's game against the Boston Celtics. There's no indication, though, that he'll return in time for the Nets' upcoming road trip that begins on Sunday in Dallas.
Today at practice he told the media that he is feeling better, but he's not sure when he'll return.
