The Wolves finish a quick, Eastern set of back-to-back games tonight in Boston and because of that, Kevin Garnett won't play in his return to the city where he won the 2008 NBA title.

Garnett played 10 minutes in Sunday's 100-85 victory at Brooklyn, but won't play tonight against a Celtics team that won't play without three starters itself.

Point guard Marcus Smart remains out since late November because of a knee injury and forwards Amir Johnson (plantar fasciitis) and Jared Sullinger (back spasms) both won't play tonight, either.

Expect Gorgui Dieng to start in Garnett's power-forward spot.

David Lee and Kelly Olynyk will start for Johnson and Sullinger.

Garnett visited before the game with former Celtics teammate Brian Scalabrine and Celtics coach Brad Stevens chatted with Wolves forward Tayshaun Prince, who played nine games and spent about five weeks with the the Celtics last season.
