If you were holding out hope for good news regarding Kemba Walker on Wednesday, you’ll be sorely disappointed.
The Boston Celtics guard will miss Wednesday night’s game against the Utah Jazz with an ailing left knee, according to the team. Walker has missed the last three games and six of 10 overall.
Robert Williams also will remain out with left hip bone edema.

Walker has received some criticism for playing in the NBA All-Star Game despite his knee injury. And, honestly, the criticism probably is warranted. Still, both Walker and the Celtics insist the injury is not a long-term concern.
Boston and Utah are scheduled to tip-off Wednesday night at 10:30 p.m. ET.
