WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Kevin Garnett is expected to miss at least a week with inflammation in his left ankle as the Boston Celtics practice patience to help their 36-year-old prepare for the playoffs.

Coach Doc Rivers said Monday he doesn't think Garnett will be out for the long term.

Garnett sat out Saturday night's 110-106 loss at Memphis and will miss Tuesday night's home game against the New York Knicks. The Celtics' busy stretch continues Wednesday night at Cleveland, Friday night at home against the Atlanta Hawks, Sunday night at New York and Monday at Minnesota.

Boston general manager Danny Ainge said Garnett could be sidelined one to three weeks. Rivers said guard Courtney Lee could return Tuesday after missing a game with a sprained left ankle.
