    Kemba Walker has been rehabbing his left knee while in quarantine, and says that it's "doing well."

    Walker actually played in the Celtics' last three games before the season was shut down but has missed a total of eight games this season (plus one in preseason) due to left knee soreness. It's clearly a chronic issue at this point, and fantasy GMs just have to hope that this lengthy layoff will help Walker get back to full strength if and when the season resumes.

    A statement from the Boston Celtics on Thursday indicated that Celtics player tested positive for COVID-19.

    The player in question isn't exhibiting symptoms and has been in isolation for multiple days. He was tested because of a known interaction with a positive case. Unfortunately given how fast the virus is spreading, we're likely to see more cases like this in the near future.

    Kemba Walker will be on a strict 30-32 minute limit for Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

    Walker is still working his way back from a knee injury that has bothered him since before the All-Star break. The good news is that this is more than enough time to put up numbers. Continue to start Walker with the expectation that he should have his minutes limit lifted shortly.

    Jayson Tatum did not shoot the ball well as he put up 19 points on 8-of-22 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.

    Tatum missed the game-winning shot over Chris Paul and was unable to get in a rhythm. Kemba Walker got stripped with under ten seconds remaining which led to Dennis Schroder's game-winning layup. Walker could not find a rhythm either as he had just 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting. Tatum and Walker should bounce back next game as they are the two best fantasy assets on the Celtics.

    Kemba Walker had a rough shooting night on Friday, going 5-for-17 from the field for 13 points, three rebounds, one 3-pointer and seven assists in a loss to the Jazz.

    Walker may have been shaky tonight, but the good news is that he says his knee is feeling much better and that tonight was the best he's felt in a while, adding that he hopes his minutes restriction will be lifted soon. That's good news overall as his shots should eventually start falling once again.

    Kemba Walker (left knee) will have his minutes limit increased on Friday night.

    Walker returned from a five-game absence on Tuesday and scored 21 points in 23 minutes, so even if he ends up playing around 28 tonight that's more than enough to get him in your lineups.

    Jayson Tatum (illness) will play in Wednesday’s game vs. the Cavs.

    Tatum has been red-hot over the last two weeks and is now producing 2nd/1st round value in 8/9-cat leagues. He should see an even greater workload on Wednesday with Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker sidelined. Lock him in across formats.

    Kemba Walker (left knee) will sit out on Wednesday against the Cavs in the second game of the Celtics' back-to-back set.

    Walker played on Tuesday evening, dropping 21 points. Prior to that, however, Walker had missed five consecutive games with left knee soreness. The Celtics play again on Friday vs. the Jazz and we'd expect Walker to play (with his minutes restriction) in that contest.

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) returned from a five-game absence on Tuesday and scored 21 points on 6-of-16 shooting in 23 minutes, adding three rebounds, three assists and four triples at home vs. the Nets.

    The Celtics stuck to Walker's minutes limit, and it may have cost them the game. However, it was good to see him looking healthy. Unless there are quite a few injury management games, Kemba should be a top-50 player again down the stretch.

    Kemba Walker is expected to be on a 20-25 minute limit against the Nets on Tuesday.

    Walker hasn't played since February 16th, as Marcus Smart has thrived with the added ballhandling and usage responsibilities. Smart should take a hit once Walker is back up to speed, but Jayson Tatum (illness) is out tonight and he should stick in the starting lineup.

    Kemba Walker felt good after practicing on Monday and he will play with a minutes limit on Tuesday against the Nets.

    Kemba has been sidelined since the All-Star break but he looks to be on track to return tonight. The Celtics will likely be cautious with their star guard and owners should lower their expectations at least for the first few games.

    Jayson Tatum (illness) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Tatum has been phenomenal over the last week, averaging 35.5 points during his last four games. Kemba Walker is expected to return against the Nets, but Tatum's status is less clear at this point.

    Marcus Smart (illness) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Smart missed practice on Monday. He finished Saturday's game with 26 points, five rebounds, seven assists, and four steals. In any case, Kemba Walker is expected to return against the Nets.

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) is considered probable for Tuesday's game.

    Walker hasn't played since February 16 but looks to be ready to face the Nets. Brad Wanamaker should see a reduced role, but even without Walker he wasn't playing all that much. Walker has averaged 21.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.0 assists this season.

    Barring any setbacks, Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) is expected to play on Tuesday.

    Walker has missed the last five games and it sounds like he went through Monday's practice without incident, so fantasy GMs can prepare to get the star PG back in all lineups. He might be limited for the first few games back but even 25 minutes of Kemba should be good enough to deliver value.
