Garnett Has Successful Surgery

An NBA source told the Globe that Celtics forward Kevin Garnett underwent surgery today to remove bone spurs in his injured right knee, which kept him out of the entire postseason.

The source said surgery went well and Garnett would be sidelined from basketball activity for 6-8 weeks.

The spurs in Garnett’s knee were detected before the season, but were not considered serious enough to warrant surgery. However, he came up limping late in the first half during a Feb. 19 game at Utah, and was sidelined until March 15.

After playing briefly in four games, then was shut down by the Celtics, who were aiming to have him available for the playoffs.
