Terry to return vs. Celtics

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets reserve guard Jason Terry will make his preseason debut Wednesday night in Boston.

Terry had been recovering from offseason surgery on his left knee. He went through his first full practice Friday.

"It's gonna be great, getting back out there with my teammates," Terry said Sunday. "I've been out there in practice the last couple days. Everything's been going fine, no setbacks. So just being able to get out there in real live game action, it's gonna be good."

Terry said his plan all along was to play in the team's final two preseason games. The Nets wrap up the preseason in Miami Friday night. Terry added that his knee feels strong.

The Nets acquired Terry, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in an offseason trade with the Celtics. Garnett and Pierce will not travel to Boston for Wednesday's game.

"It's gonna be fun," Terry said of making his return to Boston. "For me, I was only there a year. The fans were great, the city was good to me. There's no hard feelings or ill-emotions. I'm gonna see some of my friends; Avery Bradley's almost like a brother to me. Seeing him will be good."
