This shouldn’t be a surprise. It’s November, there is no reason to have a team’s best player push through injuries with more than four months of the regular season left, and then the games that really matter start.
Kemba Walker is questionable for the Kings’ Monday night game at Sacramento, the Celtics announced Sunday.
That he is only questionable is a great sign considering how bad things looked Friday night when he had his head down and ran into teammate Semi Ojeleye. Walker immediately fell to the floor and did not move, eventually being stretchered off the court.
Walker was released from the hospital later that evening and the team was watching for concussion symptoms, but it could have been much worse.
The Celtics play in Brooklyn on Wednesday night for their next game.
