D-Will, Garnett, Kirilenko, Taylor out vs. C's
By Mike Mazzeo
NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets will be without Deron Williams (right ankle sprain), Kevin Garnett (rest), Andrei Kirilenko (back spasms), Jason Terry (left knee rehab) and Tyshawn Taylor (right ankle sprain) when they play the Boston Celtics in Tuesday night's preseason game, according to the team's official media game notes.
Reggie Evans is the probable starter in place of Garnett. Paul Pierce, who took Monday night off to rest and did not travel to Philadelphia, will play against his former team.
Jorge Gutierrez (left ankle sprain) is questionable. Tornike Shengelia (right knee rehab) remains out.
Williams and Terry have yet to play in the preseason. This will be the second straight game Kirilenko misses.
