Bill Walker left Wednesday’s practice with an injured knee, and an MRI revelead a torn meniscus, which will require Walker to miss six to eight weeks. The Celtics will be forced to carry the injured Walker on their active roster to start the season.
Walker has previously had major surgery on both knees, which is the lone reason he fell to the second round of the draft. He also has the best nickname of any Celtic: Skywalker.
Reaction: It’s a tough setback for Walker, who was figuring to grab some minutes off the bench for forwards. This will undoubtedly send him to the bottom of the bench, and he’s going to need to prove himself in garbage time before he ever gets a chance to play important minutes.
