Boston Celtics point guard Kemba Walker appears to have suffered a serious neck injury after crashing head first into teammate Semi Ojele during tonight’s game in Denver against the Nuggets. Walker immediately crashed to the floor and did not move at all in front of a stunned crowd.
A team of medical professionals spent a significant amount of time working on Walker, strapping him to a stretcher and wheeling him from the basketball court. Walker did not respond to the crowd when he was carted off.
In the latest update it appears Kemba may have dodged a bullet but will be further evaluated at the hospital for concussion like symptoms.
