Walker has now missed nine games in a row since playing 19 minutes in late December. Recently acquired Knick, Cam Reddish, is out with an ankle injury and Nerlens Noel remains out with a knee injury.
The Golden State Warriors have not listed Stephen Curry on the injury report after sitting out against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
