Celtics star gets positive results on tests after leaving game on stretcher

Celtics star gets positive results on tests after leaving game on stretcher”

Basketball fans are holding their breath for Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker who was carried off the Pepsi Center floor on a stretcher following an apparent neck injury on Friday night.

The team announced that Walker is suffering from "concussion-like symptoms", and that he was being taken to a hospital for further evaluation. He will be reevaluated Saturday. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the early indications point to Walker not having suffered a serious injury in the play, which would be a major relief for Boston. While trying to control a pass that he deflected, Walker ran headfirst into the chest of teammate Semi Ojeleye.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after the game that he didn't have an update on Walker's status, but that the scans Walker underwent at halftime yielded good results. Walker went down to the floor and was immediately checked by the team's medical staff before being stretchered off the floor.

Walker laid on the court for several minutes before he was taken away on a stretcher. Referees and members of both teams stopped play to gather around him, check on his condition, and see him safely off the court. You can also stream the game through the MyTeams App.

Walker, 29, entered the game averaging a team-leading 22.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists in his first season with Boston. He suffered the injury when he collided with LaMarcus Aldridge in a November 9 game against San Antonio.
