Boston Celtics PG Kemba Walker has been ruled out for Friday’s game vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves due to knee soreness, per coach Brad Stevens. Walker was limited at practice on Wednesday as a precaution and it looks like Boston will play it safe with Kemba. Walker has missed time this season due to various injuries, including this knee ailment. He looked pretty good in the All-Star Game last Sunday though, scoring 23 points for Team Giannis.

Jaylen Brown is off the injury report, so he’s good to go for Friday vs. the T-Wolves. With that news, we can roll Brown out in DFS lineups as a solid all-around play. I’d lean GPPs just because Brown’s ceiling is more reliant on his scoring. Same goes for Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward, who both get a nice boost with Walker out.
