The Welshman picked up two yellow cards in a row against Fulham and Liverpool after referees in both games judged Bale to have dived under opposition pressure.
Walker told the Tottenham official website that he did not perceive Bale to be the diving sort, and he believed his squad-mate was simply trying to get out of the way of a defender's challenge.
"He's had a lot of injuries in the past and defenders going to try and kick him. Us defenders don't want him running at us. I don't think it is a dive, I think he is just trying to get out of the way so he doesn't get hurt," Walker shared.
"I think he has been a bit unlucky. It's difficult for the referees because they haven't got replays. Gareth Bale is a fantastic player."
Spurs are currently fourth in the Premier League table in Andre Villas-Boas' first campaign at the helm. The left-back revealed that he enjoyed training sessions with Villas-Boas, as there was always plenty to learn.
"The gaffer now is very tactically aware and the trainings sessions are different every time depending on who we are playing," Walker said.
"He has helped me in my game, educating me going forward and also defending as well. I just want to learn and it is a please working with him."
Tottenham travel to Goodison Park to play Everton in their Premier League encounter this Sunday.
