"No, I'm not," replied Walker.
"It just comes down to I haven't had enough conditioning in my body.
"I personally think if I go out there Friday night I won't be able to help the team because I'm not conditioned enough.
"I'd be letting the team down."
Walker is recovering from a foot injury suffered during the pre-season.
