It was reported that Walker's left knee issue continued to linger and was more serious than the team was letting on. “I don’t know if that’s true, but I’m not sure it matters now,” said Ainge. “Time will tell. Time will tell us about the health of players. I mean, there’s always injuries going on, but I’m confident that Kemba and Jaylen Brown are going to have a really good (remainder) of the year," said Celtics' President Danny Ainge. Walker missed 14 games this year due to multiple injuries. The time off afforded Walker to rest his bothersome knee an he should be all systems go once the NBA season resumes. Walker averaged 21.2 points, 4.9 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 3.3 triples and 0.9 steals across 50 games this year.
