KG, Randolph, White make trip

The Boston Celtics traveled to New Orleans for the start of a three-game road trip on Tuesday and Kevin Garnett (illness, thigh) flew with his teammates after missing the past two games, according to the team.

Despite sitting out against both the Bobcats and Heat, Garnett was expected to travel and could be back on the floor for Wednesday's game against the Hornets. Celtics coach Doc Rivers had said that Garnett would have played on Monday against Miami if not for the illness on top of his thigh injury.

Also making the trip were D.J. White and Shavlik Randolph. For White, that's further confirmation that he'll be signed for the remainder of the season as his second 10-day contract is set to expire at midnight. Randolph's second 10-day pact expires after Wednesday's game and the team will also have to decide whether he will be retained for the rest of the year. Players can only sign two 10-day contracts before being released or signed for the duration of the campaign.
