After missing the last seven games for the Boston Celtics, head coach Doc Rivers says that Kevin Garnett will be returning to the lineup soon. 

The question is how soon? According to ESPN, it could be as soon as Friday at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers. It will be a very welcomed return, since the Celtics have gone 3-4 since he's been out.

Doc Rivers said on Thursday morning that right now they are playing it by ear, but GArnett will be playing soon.
