Update: Billy has successful surgery (rumor is out 6-8 weeks)

Updating the story from yesterday, the Celtics just put out the following press release:

BOSTON, MA - The Boston Celtics announced today that forward Bill Walker underwent successful right knee arthroscopic surgery today at the New England Baptist Hospital. Walker sustained a meniscus tear on the first day of training camp. Surgery was performed by Team Physician Dr. Brian McKeon and assisted by John Rand, PAC. No timetable has been set for his return.

 

Yesterday's story from the From the Globe

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.

Walker left Wednesday's practice with a sore knee and returned to Boston for further examination.

Walker has had major surgery on both knees and has yet to reach his vast potential. He spent most of his rookie season in the NBDL. He played in 29 games last season.

As I said in the comments yesterday, I blame Cameron Diaz.   I like that the Globe calls his potential vast though.   This opens the door again for TA and for JR as well.
