News: Garnett played 18 minutes and grabbed 10 boards in the loss to the Hawks on Friday. He was limited to four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 FT). Impact: Garnett has played in back-to-back games for the first time since late February. The 37-year-old is on his last legs, but he can be effective in limited minutes for the Nets.(RotoWire, )

News: Garnett (back) contributed 17 minutes in the Nets' efforts against the Magic on Wednesday. He finished with five points, eight rebounds and six assists. Impact: Garnett has had arguably the most disappointing season of his career as he's battled the injury bug. He's a risky option at this point even though he was on record saying that he had aspirations to play in the final four games of the season. Most leagues should stay away from the roller coaster ride that's been Garnett's availability.(RotoWire, )

News: Garnett (back) intends to play in the Nets' final four games, if healthy, Newsday reports. Impact: Garnett, who missed Tuesday's first game a back-to-back, returned to the lineup Wednesday to contribute five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, and six assists in 17 minutes. With four games remaining before the playoffs, Garnett hopes to be on the floor, but the team could hold him out as a precaution in hopes of preserving his health for the first round.(RotoWire, )

News: Garnett (back) will not play Tuesday but will be back in the lineup Wednesday, the New York Post reports. Impact: The Nets have another back-to-back set next Tuesday and Wednesday, so it's possible Garnett will sit out one of those two games next week as well. Overall, it's hard to rely on Garnett from game to game, and the fact that he plays so few minutes (between 13-18 minutes) when he is cleared to play, makes it difficult to recommend him in anything but the deepest of leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Garnett (rest) will be held out of Tuesday's game against the Heat, Newsday reports. Impact: At this point, the Nets are just concerned with being as close to full strength as possible for the postseason, but Garnett will be available in Wednesday's game, although it's not clear how much run he'll see. In his first game in five weeks Saturday, he saw just 13 minutes and only holds value in the deepest of leagues right now.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Garnett played his first game in five weeks Saturday, scoring 10 points (5-6 FG) with four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in just 13 minutes. Impact: Nets fans will love seeing Garnett back, but his usefulness from a fantasy perspective is limited. It's unlikely coach Jason Kidd will play Garnett over 20 minutes in any of the season's remaining games, so he's only really a consideration in the deepest of leagues.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Garnett (back) will play Saturday for the first time in 19 games, Newsday reports. Impact: Garnett will play limited minutes but have plenty of rust since he hasn't played since Feb. 27. He may work his way into decent minutes in time for the playoffs.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Garnett (back) is a game-time decision Saturday, the Bergen Record reports. Impact: Garnett has missed the last 19 games with back spasms, and even if he plays, it's unlikely he'll see more than 20-to-25 minutes of court time, making him a risky play in most leagues. At this point, Brooklyn is only worried with making sure he'll be able to contribute in the postseason.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Garnett (back) will not play Friday, The Wall Street Journal reports. Impact: Garnett, who is slated to miss his 19th straight game due to back spasms, is nearing a return to the court, possibly Saturday versus Philadelphia. While the future Hall of Famer will watch Friday's game from the bench, he could factor into fantasy leagues for the regular season's final remaining games.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Nets' general manager Billy King said that Garnett could return sometime this weekend, The New York Post reports. Impact: Garnett has not play since Feb. 27, but is close to a return. When he is able to return, Garnett is not the same player he once was. He is having the worst statistical season of his career, averaging career-lows in points, assists, blocks, steals and minutes.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Garnett (back) will miss Wednesday's game against the Knicks, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: This will be the 18th consecutive game that Garnett has missed with the injury. This doesn't come as too much of a surprise as the earliest he is expected to return could be this weekend or next week.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 1, 2014
News: Garnett (back) will miss his 17th consecutive game Tuesday versus the Rockets, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Garnett's exclusion comes as no surprise, as he's not anticipated to be able to play until at earliest this weekend or next week. Averaging career-lows across the board, the 37-year-old has shown clear signs of aging this season and will now aim to get his back right so he can feature in the Nets' playoff series.(RotoWire, )
