Celtics star collides with Semi Ojeleye, taken off court by stretcher

Welcome to the roundup of must-see sports news from Friday, featuring a scary scene in Denver when the Boston Celtics' Kemba Walker had to be stretchered off the court after colliding with a teammate. The defense was great, turnovers were out of control, we stopped moving the ball and we allowed them to score 35 points in the fourth quarter and make it a ball game.

A hush fell over the arena as trainers and team staff surrounded Walker on the floor. Teammates watched the shocking scene unfold.

It was just a year ago that Russell Westbrook had a racially-charged encounter with a fan in Salt Lake City, while DeMarcus Cousins experienced something similar during a Celtics-Warriors game in Boston.

Walker has been diagnosed with "concussion like symptoms" by the team, as the entire basketball world keeps their fingers crossed for the new Celtic.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday night that early indications are that the 29-year-old did not suffer a significant injury.

Playing on the road in Denver, the Celtics lost Kemba Walker to injury, and also lost 96-92 to the Nuggets. He'll be re-evaluated tomorrow and further updates will possible be supplied as acceptable. Further updates will be provided as appropriate.

#NEBHInjuryReport Following trying out at a Denver sanatorium, Kemba Walker has been launched to rejoin the crew for its return to Boston. Since his rookie season, Walker has played at least 62 games in every season, seeming to avoid any serious injuries.

Expectations were that he'd continue that trend while a member of the Celtics.

Nikola Jokic added 18 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists for the Nuggets, who improved to 8-0 this season when holding an opponent to fewer than 100 points.
