Walker will not play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Pistons, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

After playing in each of the Knicks' first two exhibitions, the veteran point guard will get the night off for maintenance purposes. On Saturday against Washington, Walker finished with six points (2-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and a pair of turnovers in 21 minutes of action. Knee issues have hampered the former-All-Star in recent years, but he projects to open the season as the starting point guard ahead of Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley. When active, Walker should have no trouble holding onto that role, but it's very possible the Knicks will be cautious with his workload throughout the season.
