Kemba Walker (rest) ruled out for Celtics in second leg of back-to-back
Boston Celtics point guard Kemba Walker (rest) will not play versus the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.
Walker will sit out after scoring 21 points with 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 4 triples in the front leg of Boston's back-to-back. Javonte Green replace Walker in the lineup last week and played 24 minutes with 9 points, 3 rebounds, a 3-pointer, and a pair of steals. Payton Pritchard is another candidate to replace Walker in the starting lineup.
The Hawks are allowing the most FanDuel points per game to the point guard position this season. Green has a salary of $3,500 and Pritchard is $400 more expensive on Wednesday's nine-game slate.
