Boston Celtics vs New York Knicks Live:

Walker missed the first 11 games of the 2020-21 NBA season after receiving a stem-cell injection in October 2020 that required a 12-week strengthening program.

Walker’s troublesome knee was a lingering issue throughout the 2019-20 season that held him out of games and hindered his performance during the NBA Restart and the 2020 Playoffs.

Despite the ongoing knee issues, Walker averaged 20.4 points, 4.8 assists, and 3.9 rebounds over 56 regular-season games in 2019-20 and in 17 postseason games, posted averages of 19.6 points, 5.1 assists, and 4.1 rebounds.
