DENVER, CO. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Celtics' point guard Kemba Walker suffered a neck injury during the Celtics versus Nuggets game Friday.

Walker ran headfirst into the abdomen of his teammate Semi Ojeleye, then fell to the ground and remained motionless.

Medical personnel put a brace on Walker's neck before transferring him to a gurney and taking him to a hospital during half-time.

Walker has since been released from the hospital after being treated for "concussion-like" symptoms, according to the team's Twitter.

"I took him to the hospital and he had his wherewithal and in pretty decent spirits, which was good," Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said.

Walker will be reevaluated in Massachusetts Sunday.
