Boston Celtics all-star guard Kemba Walker was stretched off the floor after he collided with teammate Semi Ojeleye during their game against the Denver Nuggets on Friday (Saturday PHI time).
The Celtics were working on cutting the deficit of their opponent in the second quarter when the accident happened.
Walker was chasing a loose ball for a possible steal then he hit on the body of Ojeleye.
Walker hit the deck of the Pepsi Center and was on the floor until he got pulled out by the medics who are on stand-by during the match.
Celtics head coach Brad Stevens gave an update on Walker’s injury:
“All the stuff, the scans that (Walker) went through at halftime yielded good results, but we haven’t heard anything since,” Stevens said, per NBC Sports Boston’s postgame coverage. “But I saw him in the ambulance at halftime that took him to the hospital and he had his wherewithal and was in pretty decent spirits, which was good, obviously. … He gave me his typical, ‘I’m fine. Tell them to go win.’”
Boston already sidelined its other all-star player Gordon Hayward several days ago due to his hand injury.
The Celtics eventually lost to the Denver Nuggets after the game, 92-96.
