Fantasy Update

Kevin Garnett (rest) is not listed on the injury report, and will play against the Jazz on Saturday.

Tuesday (KG ejected for headbutting Dwight Howard) edition: Wha' Happened?

This is Kevin Garnett’s 20th year in the NBA. If that doesn’t make you feel old, we’re not sure what will. (He’s always been about five months older than us, so it REALLY makes us feel old). But while his future might include buying the Timberwolves, his present involves being the same combative, fiery player he was when he came into the league straight out of high school. There are numerous examples from over the years. The latest came Monday night, when Garnett got tangled up with Dwight Howard … and just couldn’t let it go. It ended with Garnett headbutting the Rockets center...

Video: Kevin Garnett head-butted Dwight Howard after Howard pushed him

Early on in the first quarter of Monday night's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Houston Rockets, Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard got into a scuffle.

Here's another view of the scuffle: Here's how Garnett reacted after the scuffle: Maybe the worst part of all of...

Garnett (rest) will not play against Sixers

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Garnett is getting the night off Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Nets have a back-to-back set and face the NBA’s hottest team, the Pistons, Saturday night in Detroit. Normally, Brooklyn rests Garnett in the second game of back-to-backs. But with the Sixers struggling and the Pistons scorching, this strategy makes sense. The team also announced that guard Markel Brown has been diagnosed with a mild MCL sprain of the right knee and will be re-evaluated next week.

Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett are both OUT vs. the Mavericks

The Brooklyn Nets announced that Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett will both sit against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Williams, who was listed as "probable" earlier in the day, will sit because of a "sore left side," which he injured on Sunday against the Miami Heat. Garnett will sit due to rest, as he played on Sunday against the Heat and typically doesn't play on the second night of a back-to-back. Nets say Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett are both out for tonight's game. Williams for his side, Garnett for rest. — Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) January 5, 2015 Deron Williams...
