Garnett (knee) has yet to make a decision regarding his status for the 2016-17 season. Garnett last played on Jan. 13 before knee soreness kept him out the remainder of the year. It sounds like he currently wants to play another season, but is unsure if his body will be able to hold up. Regardless, given his mentoring role with the young Timberwolves' squad he does not hold any real fantasy value. The team is not in a position where they need a decision any time soon, so Garnett will likely take all the time he needs prior to training camp to decide on his future with the team.
Coach Sam Mitchell told Sirius XM NBA Radio on Tuesday that Garnett (knee) could be at risk of missing the remainder of the season. "It's a day-to-day, week-to-week thing...I'm not even going to promise that you're going to see him [again this season]." A bout of right knee soreness has prevented Garnett from playing since Jan. 23, and the cagey veteran hasn't seemed to show much in the way of progress yet, as he hasn't been practicing with the team. The Timberwolves have been evaluating him on a game-by-game basis for the duration of his absences, but now that Garnett has missed the last 15 contests, it appears safe to conclude he's no longer merely "day-to-day." With the team well out of playoff contention in the Western Conference and keen on developing its young players over the final month and a half of the season, there's little incentive for the 39-year-old Garnett to rush back to the court.
Garnett (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Kyle Radke of Timberwolves.com reports. Garnett has been sidelined since Jan. 23 by a sore right knee and doesn't look to be particularly close to a return. With the Timberwolves bound for the draft lottery this season, rushing the 39-year-old Garnett back into action isn't a major priority.

Garnett's next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Raptors.
