At shootaround, Brad Stevens said scans didn’t show signs of a tear.

“It’s a sprain,”  Stevens told reporters. “Still got a little swelling."

UPDATE: Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) was a late scratch for Saturday's game. As of Saturday morning's shootaround, Walker was questionable to play.

"Kemba got ahold of out doctors (Friday) night and said he had some knee soreness," Stevens said during his pregame availability. "He went in and got an MRI today. Didn't show anything structurally wrong, but clearly very sore."
