Excused absence for KG

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett received an excused practice for the second straight day due to family reasons. Celtics coach Doc Rivers declined to go into detail other than to say family reasons, but did say Garnett planned on working out at the team’s practice facility tonight and practicing tomorrow.

An NBA source has said that Garnett’s wife, Brandi, gave birth to the couple’s first child yesterday.
