Being optimistic, Rivers said Kevin Garnett could return to the next week, keeping with the two-week window that the team initially set after Garnett strained his right calf Dec. 29 in Detroit.

The way the scene unfolded, it seemed that Garnett's injury was more serious, but X-rays and MRI’s were negative. Garnett worked out Wednesday morning in Waltham.

“I think he’ll be back early next week,” Rivers said. “Monday or Wednesday. He could play then, too.”
