Kemba Walker’s injury first appeared in February at the All-Star week, leaving him in constant pain for a long time. During the offseason, the Boston Celtics lost striker Gordon Hayward to Charlotte Hornets. Now, they will not have the services of another All-Star defender in the squad, Kemba Walker.
According to the team medical team, Kemba recently injected a stem cell shot into the left knee to complete the injury recovery process.
On additional notes by the team, Kemba Walker has been consulting with many experts since early October. Eventually, he accepted the stem cell injection and went into a 12-week “knee workout” that leaves Walker sitting out in 2020 and into early January.
The former defender of Charlotte Hornets is expected to return to training in mid-December with the Boston Celtics. After that, the medical team will monitor Kemba’s injury and set a time to return for this player.

Kemba Walker’s injury in February left him in constant pain for a long time. By the time the NBA restarted in Orlando, the Boston Celtics were forced to limit Kemba’s minutes of play at the Seeding Games series.
On reaching the Playoffs, Walker was free to play and averaged 19.6 points and 5.1 assists in 17 games. However, his performance was more or less affected. Share in a recent podcast appearance, coach Brad Stevens revealed that during that time, Kemba Walker has not recovered 100% and the team was “a bit in a hurry” to bring him back to the final game last season.
Currently, the Boston Celtics are confident in the injury recovery plan that Kemba Walker is working on. However, the effectiveness is only really answered by his performances in the new season, where Kemba will sit out for at least the first 20 days.
