Boston Celtics All-Star Kevin Garnett will miss at least two more games with a right knee sprain.

Coach Doc Rivers said Sunday that Garnett won't be back "earlier than next Sunday."

The Celtics are in a tight battle with the Cleveland Cavaliers for home court advantage in the Eastern Conference.

"Obviously we want to have home court, but we think we can win on the road," Rivers said. "We want to be ready for April. We want to win all these games, but we want to be healthy."
