Kemba Walker used the NBA's hiatus to rehab his troublesome left knee and stated, "I really needed to use that break. It definitely helped me get back to myself and start to feel comfortable on my knee." (Chris Forsberg on Twitter)
It's no secret that Walker's battled knee issues in the second half of the season, as he was in and out of the lineup from February to March, missing 10 games in the process. According to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, the Celtics will be at full strength in Orlando and its great news that Kemba Walker is feeling both comfortable and ready to lead the Celtics to a shot at that title. It remains to be seen if the Celtics will be cautious at the onset with Walker's minutes, but expect him to see his normal workload once the playoffs start. Walker will be a good source of production for DFS owners on FanDuel, with his last salary being a modest $6,700 prior to the stoppage of play.
