Kemba Walker scores nine points in season debut

Kemba Walker scored nine points 3-of-13 from the floor and 1-of-8 from deep with four assists, three steals, and three rebounds on Sunday as the Celtics lost to the Knicks.

Fantasy Impact

Walker took a hit to the ribs during Sunday's game against the Knicks in the third quarter and went to the locker room and did not return. Hopefully, the rib injury isn't a serious one and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.

Kemba Walker to make season debut Sunday vs Knicks

Celtics guard Kemba Walker is available to make his season debut in Sunday's game against the Knicks.

Fantasy Impact

Walker has yet to take the court after receiving a stem cell injection in his knee during the offseason. While it hasn't been announced that Walker will be under any minutes restrictions, it's reasonable to expect that he'll be limited out of the gate after the long layoff. Jeff Teague should head back to the bench against the Knicks.

Kemba Walker (knee) upgraded to questionable Sunday vs. Knicks

For the first time this season, the Celtics list PG Kemba Walker (knee) as questionable to play Sunday vs. the Knicks.

Fantasy Impact

Walker has been dealing with a knee injury since the Bubble, so it’s great to see him almost ready to take the floor in a game this season. He’s not a guarantee to play, but the questionable tag is a step in the right direction. He’ll likely be limited early on, but he should retain his starting spot soon enough.

Kemba Walker (knee) 'not quite ready' to return despite being cleared

While the Boston Celtics are scheduled to return to practice Thursday, GM Danny Ainge indicated that Kemba Walker may not be ready to go yet due to not having the chance to play 'real basketball' amid the team shutting shutting down for a few days.

Fantasy Impact

Walker was cleared to practice last Friday but hasn't been able to get up to speed due to COVID protocols forcing the Celtics to shut their doors. It does appear that he is getting close to returning to game action and should be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Kemba Walker (knee) has been cleared to return to practice.

Kemba Walker (knee) is set to begin practicing with his teammates after being cleared for on-court activity.

Fantasy Impact

Coach Brad Stevens has said that the point-guard has been "pain free for a couple of months". This is welcomed news for a Celtics team that has hampered by injuries recently. There's still no timetable for his return, so managers should continue to lean on Payton Pritchard and Jeff Teague for the foreseeable future.
