Celtics Injury Report: Kemba Walker Doubtful For Game 5 Against Nets

Walker is dealing with a bone bruise


It’s win or go home for the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, and they, once again, might be shorthanded.

Boston went down 3-1 in its first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets thanks to a 141-126 loss Sunday at TD Garden. The C’s were without Kemba Walker (knee) and Robert Williams (ankle) in Game 4.

It’s unclear if the duo will play Tuesday at Barclays Center after the Celtics’ injury report Monday revealed both Walker and Williams are doubtful for Game 5.

Walker and Williams have struggled all season to stay healthy.

Williams sprained his ankle in Game 2 after a strong performance in Game 1. He previously had been dealing with turf toe.

Walker, meanwhile, suffered a bone bruise that was unrelated to his previous knee ailments. He missed Game 4, and now it sounds like he might miss Game 5, as well.

The Celtics will look to extend their season with a win. Tip off Tuesday is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
