Kemba Walker was able to get some much-needed recovery time during the NBA hiatus.
COVID-19 effectively shutting down the entire sports world has been awful in almost every conceivable way. But there seems to be a silver lining for the Boston Celtics – Kemba Walker’s knee injury has subsided.
“It was super important for me,” he said. “I really, really needed to get that break. It definitely helped me get back to myself and start to feel comfortable on my knee. It was a very unfortunate time, but it was in my best interests for sure.”
The injury to Kemba’s knee had been lingering for some time, reaching its peak right after the All-Star Break. In a matter of just a few weeks, Walker had missed 6 games and even had his knee drained.
The Celtics were being extremely cautious with Kemba Walker’s injury but also didn’t seem to know exactly how sparingly to play him nor what his status was going to be long-term.
“I’m pretty comfortable with the way the schedule is,” Walker said. “I’m just going to keep on taking care of myself. That’s really all I can do, so I’m just going to stay on top of things and take it day-by-day.”
If everything goes according to plan, we should see a healthy Kemba Walker come playoff time.
