Report: Garnett back with team after birth of first child

Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett is back at practice as his team prepares for its first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks.

The 11-time All-Star had missed the previous two practices because of the birth of his first child, The Boston Globe reported.

Garnett would not comment about the birth.

He also worked out Friday night and watched video.

"Family issues are never public, so I ask [the media] to respect that," Garnett told The Globe. "I'm looking forward to play. I'm excited about playing tomorrow."
