Kemba Walker reveals concern about knee injury amid coronavirus quarantine

Kemba Walker, Celtics

Boston Celtics All-Star Kemba Walker says his left knee is “doing well.” After all, he has been getting plenty of rest since the NBA is on lockdown.

However, in an interview with A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston, Walker did admit that not having anyone around to give him treatment has been “difficult.”

“The knee is doing well,” Kemba Walker told NBC Sports Boston. “It’s difficult because I don’t have anyone around to give me treatments or anything like that. I have to do my own stuff which I’m trying to do as much as possible; try to stay on top of things.”

Before the 2019-20 season was suspended, Walker was averaging 21.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists for the Celtics. The 29-year-old New York native was shooting 42.1 percent from the field, 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 86.7 percent from the free-throw line.

The Celtics had a 43-21 record prior to play getting suspended. They were in third place in the Eastern Conference standings.

NBA owners are hopeful of resuming the season in the summer. However, the odds as of now don’t look too good since the coronavirus continues to spread across the world.

Walker, who is in his first season with the Celtics, was looking forward to going on a deep playoff run this campaign. The former Connecticut star never made it past the first round of the playoffs during his time with the Charlotte Hornets.

That is one of the reasons Kemba decided to sign with the Celtics in free agency last summer.
