Kemba Walker to miss fourth straight with knee soreness, ruled out against Jazz

Kemba Walker will continue his extended days off, as the Celtics have ruled out their All-Star point guard for a fourth straight game with left knee soreness, when they face the Utah Jazz tonight.

Walker hasn't played since the All-Star Game, as he'll miss his 11th game of the season -- the most since the 2014-15 campaign in Charlotte.

The Celtics have gotten back on track, beating the Trail Blazers after falling to the Lakers on Sunday. Marcus Smart, who has been holding down the fort in Walker's absence, will start again when the C's play in Utah for a second night of a back-to-back, which is also the team's fourth and final game of a west road swing.

Boston big man Robert Williams III and his pending return from a hip edema, has been looking good in practice and may return on Saturday when the Celtics host the Houston Rockets once results are revealed from a scan.

The Celtics tip-off against the Jazz from the Vivint Smart Arena, beginning at 10:30 p.m. EST.
