As the Nets were about to play the second half of a huge game against the Toronto Raptors on Monday night, Garnett was in street clothes and about to leave the building.
Garnett was supposed to start the game and make his return from injury, but the Nets announced just minutes before the tip that the 37-year-old veteran had been scratched, presumably because his back spasms had flared up again.
Garnett has missed six straight games as a result of the injury.
