Kemba Walker was "never right" physically during the Celtics' time in the bubble due to a lingering knee issue according to team president Danny Ainge.
One of the concerns across the NBA when the season resumed in Orlando was how players' bodies would adjust after not playing for more than four months and having limited (or no) access to team facilities the hiatus. Walker has been dealing with knee soreness since his college years, and he was unable to get back into the rhythm that he was in prior to the stoppage due to that issue. Boston hopes to get Walker back to full strength this offseason, with Ainge also saying that they do not believe that the All-Star point guard will need to undergo surgery to address the issue.
