BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics will be without Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee again on Wednesday night when they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Garnett and Lee both stayed behind as the Celtics left for Cleveland Tuesday night following their 100-85 loss to the New York Knicks, remaining in Boston to nurse injuries.

Wednesday night will be Garnett’s third straight game missed due to a foot injury, and the C’s center is expected to be out roughly two weeks. Garnett has missed four of the last six games due to various injuries, and five games overall this season.

Lee has missed the last two games after spraining his left ankle on Friday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Jeff Green and Jordan Crawford started in Garnett and Lee’s place on Tuesday with mixed results. Green scored 19 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in 39 minutes, with Crawford scoring 14 in 41 minutes, but also turning the ball over six times.

The Celtics have lost five straight as they limp towards the end of the regular season.
