    Walker got his first win in 29 tries against LeBron James, which is a silly stat, but we're all about stats here. He was as good as you could ask for from the floor and should continue to post near top-25 value on a per-game basis.

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) said that he is feeling better and expects to play against the Lakers on Monday.

    If Walker is to be believed, he will end up missing just one game with the knee injury. Be sure to check back closer to game time to confirm Walker's status. If He were to sit, Brad Wanamaker and Grant Williams would get extra run, while Marcus Smart and Gordon Hayward facilitate more of the offense.

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Lakers.

    Marcus Smart started for Walker in the last game blew up and set a franchise record with 11 3-pointers made. Brad Wanamaker should see a few extra minutes off of the bench if Walker is forced to sit, with most of his usage getting spread out amongst the starters.

    Marcus Smart had the green-light tonight and scored a career-high 37 points in Saturday's brutal 123-119 home loss to the Suns, chipping in five rebounds, eight assists, four steals and a franchise-high 11 triples.

    There is so much fantasy goodness oozing from this performance from Smart. With teammate Kemba Walker on the shelf for this one, Smart facilitated the ball in this one, finishing with eight assists. He also finished with four steals, which would have made this a great night for him for fantasy purposes. However, he let the ball rip from behind the arc, shooting an absurd 22 from behind the arc and converting on 11 of them. He ended up going 13-of-25 from the line finishing with what is statistically an efficient night.

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Suns.

    Brad Wanamaker may be in line to draw the start for Walker with Marcus Smart already slated to start for Jaylen Brown. Walker's injury doesn't seem to be long-term and he should be treated as day-to-day going forward.

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) is questionable to play on Saturday against the Suns.

    This is the first we are hearing of the knee issue for Walker but hopefully it's nothing serious. With Jaylen Brown already ruled out, Marcus Smart could potentially see upwards of 40 minutes if Walker is ruled out as well. Semi Ojeleye and Brad Wanamaker would also see more minutes while Tremont Waters was called up from the G League for this game as well.

    Kemba Walker's 40 points and 11 rebounds weren't enough for the Celtics as they fell to the Bucks on Thursday.

    Walker bounced back well on the second half of a back to back. He was efficient in this contest, shooting 14-of-23 from the floor. He should continue to perform well and be around a top-25 asset the rest of the way.

    Kemba Walker struggled with his shot from deep on Wednesday night, scoring 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting (2-of-11 from 3-point territory), and only adding two rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Walker has dropped a bit from ADP throughout the season and is just on the edge of a top-30 player. He'll need to shoot the ball much more efficiently moving forward to climb back up to his second-round ADP.

    Kemba Walker took a backseat on offense on Monday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Walker only logged 28 minutes, but he didn't need to play more as the Celtics got contributions from their young stars and Gordon Hayward did well facilitating the ball.

    Kemba Walker paced the Celtics in Saturday's win over the Pelicans, contributing 17 points, five rebounds, seven assists and a steal.

    Walker shot the ball well in this one and over the past three games has averaged just over 16 points per game on 50 percent shooting. The efficient shooting was a boon to an already good fantasy game as he also snagged five boards. He is already providing third round value, however, if he continues to shot the ball like this he could find himself in second round consideration.

    Kemba Walker led the way for the Celtics with 26 points and five 3-pointers despite suffering a sprained left thumb in the first half.

    Walker suffered the injury in a collision early in the game but returned to the action to put up a decent line. He should be good to go for the next contest.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart exploded for 24 points, five 3-pointers and three steals off the bench against the Sixers on Thursday.

    Smart will be back on the bench for the Celtics now that Kemba Walker is back, but he should still be a viable mid-round fantasy asset with his defensive counters. He's a great 3-and-D option.
