Brad Stevens said that he was going to "move very slowly" and continue to monitor Kemba Walker's knee as the Boston Celtics head into the playoffs.

“We’re going to move very slowly with Kemba Walker and let him strengthen (the left knee). And make sure that he’s all good to go as we enter the seeding games and obviously, the playoffs," said Stevens.

Walker missed 14 games this season with left knee issues.

Walker said that the break was much needed in healing his knee. 

“I really needed that break. It definitely helped me get back to myself and start to feel comfortable on my knee."
