NBA Executive Vice President for Basketball Operations Stu Jackson said Sunday Garnett will be held out of Tuesday's second game of the Boston-Miami Eastern Conference quarterfinals series for throwing an elbow at the head of the Heat's Quentin Richardson during a sidelines scuffle.
Jackson said Richardson has been fined $25,000 for his role in the altercation, which happened in the final minute of the Celtics' 85-76 win at TD Garden.
Miami will seek to even the series at 1-1 with a road win Tuesday.
