Celtics guard Kemba Walker will be available to make his season debut in Sunday's game against the Knicks, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Walker has been sidelined by soreness in his left knee, but he was a full participant at Thursday’s practice. The knee has been bothering him since midway through last season.

The Celtics are off to a fast start without one of their top players, leading the Eastern Conference with an 8-3 record. There’s no word on whether Walker will be on a minutes restriction, but coach Brad Stevens has the luxury of easing back into a rotation that’s already working well.

Walker is in his second year with Boston after signing a four-year max deal in the summer of 2019. He averaged 20.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 56 games last season.
