Celtics' Kemba Walker to miss at least 2 games with sore left knee
From NBA Twitter reports
Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker will miss at least the next two games with a sore left knee, coach Brad Stevens said on Saturday.
The Celtics host the 76ers on Saturday (8:30 ET, ABC), then travel to face the Hawks on Monday before returning home to host the Magic on Wednesday night.
Brad Stevens says Kemba Walker will be out "at minimum" the next two games because his knee soreness flared up on Thursday: "I don't think it's anything we think is a long-, long-term thing by any means. We certainly may have to manage it."

Walker is averaging 22.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 42 games this season.
Stevens also announced that center Enes Kanter would miss Saturday’s game due to a hip injury. “I think he’s pretty close,” Stevens said. “But I thought the other day when I saw him moving it was probably unlikely. Today he looked a little bit better but still out.”
The 76ers, meanwhile, will have Al Horford back in the lineup after the veteran center sat out Thursday’s 127-117 loss to the Hawks.
