Brad Stevens Says Kemba Walker Not Close to Return

    The Celtics will provide an updated Kemba Walker timeline next week, but he's not close to returning. Are you more worried than before?



    The Celtics expect to hear more about Kemba Walker’s injured knee and the stem cell program he’s on to recover from cartilage damage next week after New Year’s Day. Brad Stevens said he is progressing and January was the initial expected timeframe for the Celtics to set a timetable for his return, though Stevens notes it’s not soon. When will it be? The Garden Report debates when Kemba could return and whether or not this impending “update” is a push deeper into the future.
