Bill Walker out 6-8 weeks

Celtics just put out the update.

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

I wonder what that means for him staying on the team?


Surgery is scheduled for tomorrowThe Globe makes it seem that Walker can't be cut now.

An MRI on Bill Walker's right knee revealed a torn meniscus and he will
miss six to eight weeks, meaning the Celtics would have to carry an
injured Walker on their roster into the regular season.

This doesn't seem like TOO big of a deal, since Michael Sweetney is the 16th guy on the roster and he's going to get cut… barring something shocking.

    You’d think they’d cut him because of the injury? This isn’t a Leon Powe situation. We’re still 4 weeks away from the season opener.

  • I’m not sure they CAN cut him. They might be forced to keep him on the team now.

    For what he has already endured with that knee he should bounce back. Too much potential to give up on him now, even with this
    Still sucks though, but with TA also not being healthy I do not think they will cut him

    Not that big of a deal IMO. Just sucks to see him still struggling with injuries, makes me feel like he will never have a full healthy career. The kid is good when hes healthy though, definitely worth a roster spot

    Great news…this narrows down the 3 way death-match between Bill, Giddens and T.A, I mean im not happy the guys hurt and I feel he’s got some upside but i am a J.R Giddens guy and I still like T.A to an extent, Doc said (and most people can’t seem to remeber this) this summer that Bill and Giddens are essentially competing for 1 spot on the team…This helps clear it up in my eyes

    A J.R. Giddens guy? That must be one lonely camp to be in.
    Don’t get me wrong. I wish Giddens would break out and show us something. But it hasn’t happened yet, and I don’t see it happening in the near future. He’ll be released next year like Pruitt before him.
