Walker to have surgery

Celtics second-round pick Bill Walker will have knee surgery tomorrow and is expected to be out of action for 3-4 weeks. Walker injured his right knee during a workout this month for Golden State, and the surgery is expected to be minor.

Walker, a 6-6, 235-pounder, averaged 16.1 points and 6.3 rebounds as a redshirt freshman for Kansas State while playing alongside Michael Beasley, the second pick in the draft.

The 20-year-old Walker played six games for the Wildcats as a true freshman before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The Celtics sent cash considerations to the Washington Wizards for the 47th pick in the draft, which they used to draft Walker.
