Celtics' Kemba Walker Undergoes Stem Cell Injection

Kemba Walker will be taking it easy over the holiday season and won't be returning to basketball activities for a few weeks, after undergoing a Stem Cell injection in his left knee. The team will re-evaluate his progress in January and determine if he's game-ready or not.


Walker appeared in 56 games last regular season and finished the year averaging 20.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. The UCONN product knocked down 38.1% of his threes which was the second highest percentage of his career.

There were some talks this offseason the Celtics were offering Walker to several teams along with their three first-round picks to try and acquire a superstar, but appears nothing materialized. 

For now Walker remains with the Celtics, and the team awaits his comeback from his injection.
