Kemba Walker shot just 3-of-13 from the floor and 1-of-8 from deep on Sunday, scoring 13 points with five fouls in 20 minutes.
Walker (ribs) went to the locker room after a collision with Nerlens Noel and though he returned to the bench, he didn't re-enter the game as he had already reached his 20-minute limit. After the loss, Kemba said he had been in pain for “a really long time” and is excited that he was able to move freely and without any pain in this game, per ESPN's Tim Bontemps. Hopefully the rib injury isn't a serious one because the Celtics and Walker's fantasy managers need him on the court. 4:28 pm (EST)
