Kevin Garnett: (Thigh/Illness) Out Monday Staff

Update: Garnett is sick and likely would be able to play in Monday's game against the Heat if his thigh were the only issue, the Boston Herald reports.

Recommendation: The combination of an abductor sprain and flu-like symptoms will be enough to keep Garnett out of a game that he has probably been looking forward to. The good news here is that it sounds like his thigh is improving, so once the illness has passed we'd expect to see him back in the lineup.
