LANDOVER -- Veteran Washington Bullets guard Darrell Walker tested his strained right knee in a vigorous half-hour workout before the game with the Miami Heat last night and declared himself free of pain.
Walker has been sidelined since Feb. 1 when he injured his knee in New York. He exhibited good mobility cutting and jumping while using a knee brace for the first time in his seven-year playing career.
"The knee feels fine," said Walker, who was leading the team in rebounding before his injury. "The problem now is conditioning and getting used to contact again."
