Andrei Kirilenko and Kevin Garnett have both set target dates for their return, according to the team.

Kirilenko, who sprained his left ankle against the Sacramento Kings last Sunday, hopes to return “mid-week,” perhaps targeting the team’s April 2nd game against the New York Knicks.

Garnett is targeting either the weekend or one of the team’s games in Florida on April 8th or 9th. The team’s starting center has fought back spasms and hasn’t played since February 27th.

The timetables for both players are subject to change, depending on their response to treatment.
