Kemba Walker: ‘There’s no rush on my end’ to return from injury

Celtics star point guard Kemba Walker is out until at least January after receiving a stem cell injection in his left knee this offseason, and he doesn’t want to return until the knee is ready for high-level basketball.

“There’s no rush. There’s no rush on my end,” Walker told reporters Wednesday. “I’m coming back when I need to come back and when I’m feeling good to play. So that’s it. This is, I haven’t really been a guy who has been hurt over the course of my career. So this sucks, but I also love the game of basketball and I want to play at a high level in front of the fans who come to watch this game.
