Scary news out of the NBA where current Celtics and former UConn guard Kemba Walker needed to be stretched off the court after suffering a potential neck injury.
Walker chased after a loose ball and collided with teammate Semi Ojeleye. The top of Walker’s head crashed into Ojeleye’s stomach and the former UConn star immediately went down in a heap. Trainers immediately quickly called for a stretcher when they reached Walker.

After the game, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said all of Walker’s tests and scans came back positive. Walker was also released from the hospital last night.
The Celtics announced that Walker was taken to the hospital with concussion-like symptoms. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also reported Walker’s early diagnosis is positive.
