Kemba Walker Injury: Celtics Offer Discouraging Update On Star Guard

Walker is expected to miss time while rehabbing his knee


Dec 22, 2020

Don’t expect to see Kemba Walker on the court anytime soon, Green Teamers.

The Boston Celtics guard is expected to miss at least the first month of the season after receiving a stem cell injection in his knee in late November. And that prognosis apparently hasn’t changed, as evidenced by the update offered by Brad Stevens after Tuesday’s Celtics practice.

Take a look:

Obviously, Walker’s situation will be worth monitoring for the foreseeable future. Whether the Celtics have enough backcourt depth to fill the void left by the star point guard’s absence remains to be seen.

The Celtics will open their season Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
