Kevin Garnett will NOT play against the Heat, will play vs. the Magic

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

As the regular season winds down, Jason Kidd has decided to rest Kevin Garnett on Tuesday night against the Miami Heat, but will play him on Wednesday when the Nets suit up against the Orlando Magic.

Garnett returned to action on Saturday night against the 76ers, after having missed the 19 previous games with back spasms. Garnett played 13 minutes, scoring 10 points with four rebounds in a win over the 76ers.

With the Nets playing in a back-to-back set, there were little expectations about Kidd letting Garnett play in both games. Garnett is practicing, which is a good sign for future prospects of him being read to play when the Playoffs start in a few weeks.

No word yet, but expect Mason Plumlee to start in Garnett's place.
