The Globe is reporting that Bill Walker has a meniscus tear in his knee and he will be out 6-8 weeks.
An MRI on Bill Walker's right knee revealed a torn meniscus and he will miss six to eight weeks, meaning the Celtics would have to carry an injured Walker on their roster into the regular season. Walker left Wednesday's practice with a sore knee and returned to Boston for further examination.
Walker has had major surgery on both knees and has yet to reach his vast potential. He spent most of his rookie season in the NBDL. He played in 29 games last season.
This is really a tough break for both Walker and the Celtics. I was really hoping to see him get some minutes backing up Pierce in the preseason and get a chance to show what he can do. It seems that the poor kid can't catch a break. Let's hope that Danny doesn't decide to dump him like he did Leon because he is injured. I'd rather carry an injured Walker into the season than an injured Tony Allen. Walker not yet gotten a chance to prove himself while Tony has had chance after chance after chance and still hasn't proved anything.
Walker update: Walker will have right knee arthroscopic surgery tomorrow morning at New England Baptist.
