• Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (illness) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Hawks.

    He was dealing with a high fever on Thursday, so it makes sense to hold him out as he recovers from this episode. The good news is that Marcus Smart is back from his puzzling month-long eye infection and ready to assume his regular sport-starting point guard role. Expect all of the Celtics' wings to get a slight, but evenly distributed bump in usage.
