Police say 41-year-old Christopher Hoff


MINNEAPOLIS - Kevin Garnett got on Bostons team plane Thursday afternoon with the rest of the Celtics, headed for his old home and what will surely be a warm reception from Timberwolves fans. Jonathan Quick Jersey . They should have their chance to stand and cheer him. Watching him play is another matter. Garnett has not taken the court in two weeks because of a strained abdominal muscle, and it will be a surprise if the 11-time all-star forward suits up on Friday night for his first game in Minnesota since the seven-for-one trade that sent him to Boston in July. He said he would like to play. "But this pictures just bigger than one or two days or whats around the corner," he said. Boston is an NBA-best 37-9, obviously more concerned about Garnetts condition in April, May and June than his availability before the all-star break. Even the Timberwolves recognized that, though they wished he would play, too. "The playoffs and championship are more important than coming here and playing us," said Al Jefferson, who came to Minnesota as the centerpiece of the deal. "If hes not healthy, thats a smart decision that hes making." The Wolves dont plan an elaborate ceremony. Theyre focusing on winning the game and getting people interested again in their fledgling team, which recently moved ahead of the Miami Heat and no longer has the leagues worst record. "Id be the first to say that whenever Kevin Garnett retires, or announces hes going to retire, we will be first in line to hold a ceremony to celebrate all of his accomplishments as a Timberwolves player," chief marketing officer Ted Johnson said. The Wolves have, however, asked the NBA for extra time during player introductions before the nationally televised game to announce Garnett to the crowd even if hes on the inactive list. When hes hurt, Garnett is too competitive to sit still and prefers to spend the time during games in the trainers room. Rivers said he would ask Garnett to be present before the game. "Sitting on the bench and knowing there are probably 10 steps to the scorers table to check in wouldnt probably be the best thing for the NBA. Especially with me," Garnett said. He also joked that he doesnt "wear a sports jacket." This will be the third sellout of the season for the Timberwolves, who required customers to buy a ticket to another game for the right to a seat for K.G.s return. Anticipating the buzz kill of a game without Garnett, the Wolves announced late Thursday afternoon that fans in attendance Friday will be given a voucher for a free ticket to one of three other games this month. Small consolation. Kerry Rauschendorfer, of Minneapolis, is one fan who bought a 10-game ticket package so he could be at Target Center to see Garnett again. "He gave a lot to Minnesota both on and off the court, and I believe that part of his heart is here," Rauschendorfer said. Even owner Glen Taylor acknowledged the letdown. "I was looking forward to it also," Taylor said. So the show must go on, and the Wolves are eager to avenge their 87-86 loss at Boston on Jan. 25, when Garnett got hurt. They blew a five-point lead with 1:51 left. "It took me like five or six days to get over that game," said Jefferson, who is averaging 28.8 points and 15.6 rebounds over the past five games. "Most definitely we proved something. They know they werent supposed to win that game. Thats why they were celebrating and showing off. They thought they was going to blow us out." Garnett and Jefferson got technical fouls for their trash talk, an amusing exchange that included Garnett shouting "11 years! 11 years!" in reference to his All-Star streak and Jefferson countering with this: "I told him we both have one thing in common - no championships. He didnt like that too much." Its not just Jefferson whos eager to impress his former Celtics teammates and coaches, of course. "You want to go out there and beat them. Thats the natural instinct you have as a competitor," said point guard Sebastian Telfair, another one of the players who came in the trade. Timberwolves vice president Kevin McHale tried to shrug off the significance of Garnetts return. "Its a transient business by nature," McHale said. "You get kind of used to it, I guess." After a bit of prodding, however, McHale said hed be happy to see Garnett again. "Im not going to go down there and invade their locker room," he said. "Id imagine if I run into him, Id like to see him. I love Kevin." Jake Peavy Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey fears defensive end Dwan Edwards could miss the rest of the season with a left hamstring injury. Mark Sanchez Jersey . Clouston got what he asked for Sunday, but not nearly enough of it as Fisher scored and Alfredsson and Spezza had an assist each in a 4-2 loss to the Penguins, who now lead the best-of-seven affair 2-1. J.J. Watt Elite Jersey . Gonchar was injured following a knee on knee collision with Capitals star Alex Ovechkin who received a minor penalty on the play. A.J. Green Womens Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is questionable for Sundays season finale against the New York Jets because of a right knee injury. Chris Harris Jersey . Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed. Frye was selected eighth overall in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Knicks, and spent the first two seasons of his career with New York before moving to Portland for the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons. STRATFORD, Conn.: Police say a Connecticut man has been arrested because he showed up at a dental office naked. Police say 41-year-old Christopher Hoff, of Stratford, also was five days late for his appointment. Authorities said Hoff entered Optimus Dentals office Monday with nothing on. A startled female receptionist screamed, and he ran away. Officers wennt to his home, and Hoff told them he had been sleeping all day. Andre Branch Jersey. Police took Hoff to the dental office, where the receptionist identified him. Hoff was charged with disorderly conduct, public indecency and failure to comply with fingerprinting. He did not immediately return a telephone message left Wednesday at his home. Its unclear if he has an attorney. ' ' '
