Celtics' Kemba Walker: Officially out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) won't play in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Nets, Souichi Terada of The Springfield Republican reports.

The 31-year-old was considered doubtful for Tuesday's contest, so it's hardly a surprise he's sitting out for the second straight game. Payton Pritchard and Romeo Langford should see increased roles in Walker's continued absence.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Likely out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's Game 5 at Brooklyn.

The 31-year-old was unable to play during Game 4 on Sunday and is expected to remain unavailable for Tuesday's potential elimination game. Robert Williams (ankle) is also doubtful while Jaylen Brown (wrist) is out. Romeo Langford started in Walker's place Sunday and could do so again in Game 5.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Ruled out of Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) will not play in Sunday's Game 4 against the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

As anticipated, Walker will be sidelined as he battles the confluence of a bruised left knee sustained during Game 3 and season-long knee troubles. With Robert Williams (ankle) and Jaylen Brown (wrist) also out, the Celtics will be without three of their regular starters, so Jayson Tatum will carry a heavy burden on the offensive end. Second-year guard Romeo Langford will get the start in place of Walker as Marcus Smart presumably occupies the point guard spot.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Remains unlikely to play in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) is still considered unlikely to play in Sunday's Game 4 against the Nets, Malika Andrews of ESPN reports.

The Celtics listed Walker as doubtful earlier in the day, and it doesn't sound like much has changed as the 7:00 PM ET tip approaches. Walker will go through a pregame workout, but unless his left knee feels dramatically better, the expectation is that he'll be sidelined. Assuming that's the case, rookie Payton Pritchard should be the primary beneficiary, minutes-wise.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) is unlikely to play in Game 4 against the Nets on Sunday, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Walker looks like he'll be sidelined for Game 4 in this series due to a left knee bruise. The veteran guard has played poorly in the first three games of the series, averaging 12.7 points on 31.7 percent shooting, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. If he's sidelined, Payton Pritchard and Evan Fournier could see increased workloads.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Will be game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) will be a game-time call for Sunday's Game 4 against the Nets, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

Walker's knee is still bothering him, and it's not a given that he'll play in Game 4. He struggled through Game 3, posting six points on 3-of-14 shooting in 34 minutes.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Will play in Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) is available for Friday's Game 3 against the Nets, Marc D'Amico of the Celtics' official site reports.

Walker was initially questionable due to a left knee medial bone bruise, but he'll play through the injury in Friday's crucial Game 3 with the Celtics down 2-0. So far in the series, he's averaged 16.0 points on 37.0 percent shooting, 4.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 28.5 minutes.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Questionable for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is questionable for Friday's Game 3 against the Nets due to a left knee medial bone bruise, Taylor Snow of Celtics.com reports.

Walker had a nice Game 2, as he posted 17 points, seven assists and three rebounds with no turnovers. However, he emerged from the game with a bruised knee, making his availability for Friday's game unclear. If Walker sits out, more minutes will be available for Payton Pritchard.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Scores 17 points with seven dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker tallied 17 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven assists and three rebounds in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 130-108 loss to the Nets.

The 31-year-old cleaned up his efficiency in Game 2, shooting 45.5 percent from the field versus just 31.3 percent in Game 1. Walker is averaging just 16.5 points and 4.5 assists with little else in his first two playoff games, which is a far cry from his previous four games where he averaged 29.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 4.3 three-pointers and 1.3 steals in that span. The 10-year veteran will look to help the Celtics achieve their first win in the series at home Friday.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Poor shooting effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker mustered 15 points (5-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and a rebound across 27 minutes in Saturday's playoff loss to the Nets.

Walker didn't have a good shooting performance but that might have been nothing more than a rough outing, as he has scored at least 20 points in seven of his last nine contests. Expect Walker to hold a big role for the Celtics offensively as they try and upset the Nets in Round 1.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Strong showing in win over Wiz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) tallied 29 points (10-24 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Tuesday's play-in game win over Washington.

Walker has had an up-and-down season, but Tuesday marked one of his better offensive efforts of the entire campaign, and it couldn't have come at a better time for the Celtics. The point guard missed the final three games of the regular season, but he should be fine for the start of Boston's Round 1 series against Brooklyn on Saturday.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Good to go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game against the Wizards.

The 31-year-old sat out the final three games of the regular season with Boston's play-in positioning solidified, so it's not surprise he'll be available for Tuesday's contest. Walker averaged 29.8 points, 4.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 35.3 minutes over his last four appearances of the season.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Out Saturday, Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) is out Saturday against the Timberwolves and Sunday against the Knicks, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.

The Celtics are locked into the seventh seed in the East, so Walker doesn't need to play in the final two regular-season games. Marcus Smart (calf), Tristan Thompson (chest) and Robert Williams (toe) are out Saturday and Sunday as well.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker will miss Saturday's game against the Timberwolves due to left cervical nerve irritation.

Walker has performed well recently, averaging 29.8 points, 4.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in his last four games. After missing Wednesday's game for rest, Walker will now miss his second consecutive game with irritation to a nerve in his neck.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Out for rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is out for rest Wednesday against the Cavaliers, John Karalis of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

As expected, Walker will rest his left knee on the second night of a back-to-back. Walker also appeared to injure his arm at one point during Tuesday's loss to the Heat, but it didn't stop him from playing 38 minutes while pouring in 36 points to go with seven rebounds and four assists. With Marcus Smart (calf) also out, more minutes will be available for Payton Pritchard, Evan Fournier, Romeo Langford and Aaron Nesmith.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Pours in 36 points despite injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker compiled 36 points (14-27 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 129-121 loss to the Heat.

Walker was forced from the game after suffering what appeared to be an arm injury after a collision with Bam Adebayo. Against all odds, Walker was able to return to the court and came through, dropping a team-high 36 points. Alas, it was to no avail as the team fell to the Heat, meaning now the Celtics must try and advance to the playoffs by means of the play-in tournament. The Celtics face the Cavaliers on Wednesday, so GMs should keep an eye on the injury report over the coming 24 hours.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Checks back in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (arm) checked back into Tuesday's game against the Heat during the first quarter, Marc D'Amico of the Celtics' official site reports.

Despite not moving his arm on the way to the locker room following a collision with Bam Adebayo, Walker has checked back into Tuesday's game. Even if he finishes the remainder of the contest, he could land on the injury report for Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers.

May 11, 2021 08:52 PM
Celtics' Kemba Walker: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went to the locker room during the first quarter of Tuesday's contest against the Heat, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

Walker collided with Bam Adebayo while going for a rebound, and he didn't move his left arm afterward on the way to the locker room. He should be considered questionable to return Tuesday, though it seems unlikely.

Celtics' Kemba Walker: Forgetful performance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker scored 18 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists, two rebounds and two steals over 40 minutes Sunday in the 130-124 loss to the Heat.

Walker had a tough time finding his shot and saw a streak of connecting on multiple threes come to an end at seven games. While he did have six assists, Walker committed four turnovers, the second time he's done so in his last five contests. Despite the poor outing Sunday, Walker has stepped up nicely in the absence of Jaylen Brown (ankle) and has two 30-point performances in his last three contests.

May 8, 2021 06:56 PM
Celtics' Kemba Walker: Drills six threes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker posted 33 points (10-22 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 33 minutes in Friday's 121-99 loss to the Bulls.

The Celitcs' offensive potency takes a hit whenever Jaylen Brown (ankle) is off the court, but Walker has done an excellent job in absorbing most of his output over the past two games. He followed up a solid 32-point effort with 33 points in Thursday's loss. If Walker can stay healthy and keeps producing at this clip, the Celtics will be a force to reckon with in the playoffs.
