McHale on Garnett's injury

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett's injured right quadriceps healed not long after the season ended, but the pain he experienced is an indication that his minutes must be scaled back, vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said Thursday.

"He's fine," McHale said. "He got some work on it. I think a week after the season, everything was getting in the right order. He's had problems on and off."

McHale said Garnett will need to do more maintenance in the future to stay healthy...

McHale also said that he wants to decrease Garnett's playing time to around 34 or 35 minutes a game.
