Walker recalled from Red Claws

By Chris Forsberg

The Celtics recalled forward Bill Walker from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League on Wednesday.

Walker appeared in nine games for Maine, averaging a team-best 17.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. In his last outing, Walker erupted for a season-high 33 points on 14-of-17 shooting.

Walker's return adds depth at the forward position should Kevin Garnett's right thigh bruise sideline him for any additional period of time.

(Update: The Celtics confirmed that Walker did not travel with the team to Orlando, but is expected to join them shortly, after it was revealed Paul Pierce would miss the four-game road trip.)
