The 30-year-old recieved a stem cell injection in his left knee back in December, with the team originally projecting his approximate return for late January.

Walker's progress from practice to game time is expected to be monitored closely, though, The Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach has reported it could be as soon as next Friday vs. Orlando.

The four-time All-Star is in his second season with the Celtics, having averaged 20.4 points and 4.8 assists across 56 regular season appearances in 2020.
