Kemba Walker Injury: Celtics Star To Miss Games Vs. 76ers, Hawks ‘At Minimum’

February 1, 2020

The Boston Celtics must press on without one of their brightest stars.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens revealed Saturday afternoon Kemba Walker will miss at least two games due to left knee soreness, according to The Boston Globe’s Nicole Yang. Stevens suggests Walker’s injury isn’t too serious, but is painful enough to rule him out of Saturday’s home game against the Philadelphia 76ers and Monday’s visit to the Atlanta Hawks.

Walker has played in 42 of Boston’s 47 games this season, and is averaging 22 points, four rebounds and five assists per contest. He was voted as a starter in the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.

The Celtics had listed him as questionable Friday on their injury report, and Stevens confirmed the knee problem will sideline Walker for at least a few days.

Marcus Smart and Brad Wanamaker likely will shoulder the load at point guard in Walker’s absence.

The Celtics versus 76ers game is scheduled to tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at TD Garden.
