With eight games left in the Timberwolves season, Kevin Garnett (knee) says he wants to take the court. He will try to get in shape this offseason before making a decision on redeeming his second-year option with the team. If he plays next season, he will tie the NBA record for most season played with 21.
In 38 appearances this season, Garnett averaged 3.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 14.6 minutes per game.
Kevin Garnett hasn't played in five weeks due to knee soreness. Head coach Sam Mitchell said "it is a day-to-day, week-to-week thing. I'm not going to promise you're going to see him."
Despite starting in 38 games this season, Garnett averages less than 15 minutes on the floor, good for 3.2 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. The 39-year-old power forward is owed $8 million next season after signing a two-year extension in 2015.

Kevin Garnett started for the Timberwolves and scored eight points on 4-of-5 shots while grabbing 10 rebounds in 18 minutes. He also added an assist and two steals to his final stat line in the win.
The eight points tied a season high for Garnett, and the 10 rebounds were the most for him so far this season. Garnett's value to the Timberwolves is as a mentor, which is not counted in any sort of fantasy game. It's best to just root for the veteran as he passes the torch to a talented group of young players.
Kevin Garnett started against the Grizzlies on Sunday night and scored eight points on 4-of-5 shots. He added four rebounds, one assist and three steals to his final stat line.
This type of stat line seems about right for Garnett this season, as he will see limited minutes on a regular basis. He'll also be a candidate to sit out the second game of back-to-back games, limiting his overall value in season long leagues. He's currently 161 in overall ADP, and should probably be on waivers in standard fantasy leagues.
