Bill Walker Knee Injury

Another knee injury for young Bill Walker

Doc says meniscus tear for Bill Walker and he’ll have surgery within a week. Expected out at least 6-8 weeks.

This makes four serious knee surgeries in the last couple of years

  • Walker has had surgery on both knees
  • Walker has ruptured his ACL two times — in 2003 in high school on his right knee, and 2007 as a freshman in college with his left knee.
  • A minor knee injury prior to the draft sparked GM’s worst fears and consequently Walker’s draft stock plummeted all the way down from a likely first round pick to the middle of the second round … just a year and change after he was being talked about as a potential lottery pick.
  • And now, his fourth knee injury, a meniscus tear as begins his second season in the NBA … severely hurting his chances at claiming a spot in the Celtics rotation this year.

Bill Walker has managed to hold onto his athleticism through all these injuries, that’s something at least.
