Nets call Kevin Garnett a game-time decision against the 76ers

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Kevin Garnett has missed 19 straight games due to back spasms, and while his most recent timetable to return was slated for either April 8th or 9th when the team heads to Florida to take on the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic, the Nets are now calling Garnett a "game-time decision" for Saturday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Brooklyn has gone 14-5 in Garnett's absence since he started missing games with back spasms. Mason Plumlee has started at center for the Nets during that span, though there is no word yet on whether or not Garnett will return to the starting lineup if and when he suits up against the 76ers.
