The Nets announced Monday morning that Kevin Garnett will miss his ninth straight game due to back spasms.
Garnett is out again tonight.

On Saturday in Washington, Jason Kidd seemed hopeful that Garnett would return against the Phoenix Suns, but it seems that KG's back is not cooperating. Garnett was ruled out just before tip-off last Monday against the Raptors.
The Nets starting lineup of Deron Williams/Shaun Livingston/Joe Johnson/Paul Pierce/Mason Plumlee is six-and-two in Garnett's absence.
