MIAMI — The Celtics will have Kevin Garnett in the lineup for tomorrow night’s showdown with the Miami as the NBA decided not to suspend or fine the veteran forward for his postgame exchange with former Celtic Bill Walker.

Garnett had just missed the potential game-tying shot while being defended by Walker, who appeared to approach Garnett mouthing words and Garnett responded with shove to Walker’s neck area. The two had to be separated and injured Knick Baron Davis consoled Garnett while holding him back.

Garnett refused to talk about the incident after the game, but he won’t be assessed any penalty.
