    Brad Stevens informed the media that Romeo Langford will most likely miss the start of the 2020-21 campaign after undergoing surgery to repair the scapholunate ligament in his right wrist.

    Langford was expected to play through the pain until he injured his groin in Game 2 vs. the Heat. After suffering another injury, the surgery was an easy decision for the Celtics. Langford is not on the fantasy radar outside of deep dynasty leagues at this point as he struggled to produce any fantasy value. He will have to get healthy prior to even having a chance at cracking the rotation for a team that is clearly ready to compete for titles. It is always more difficult for a unproven player to crack an NBA rotation, especially one as good as the Celtics', if they miss training camp and the start of the season.

    Romeo Langford underwent wrist surgery on Tuesday and has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

    Langford's surgery was to repair the scapholunate ligament in his wrist. He was initially diagnosed with partially torn wrist ligaments back in the middle of August but was able to play through it until now, though Langford was also sidelined by a groin strain in the postseason. He was not a consistent part of Boston's rotation and this won't have an impact on the team's title pursuits.

    Romeo Langford's right adductor strain will keep him out of the Celtics-Heat matchup on Saturday.

    The injuries are piling up for Langford, and his absence will not change things much for the Celtics' rotation anyway. With Gordon Hayward's status improving (ankle), the Celtics would likely try to cut Langford out of the rotation anyway. He'll now have time to let the adductor and his right wrist heal.

    Romeo Langford (right adductor strain) left the game after just one minute of action on Thursday and didn't return.

    Langford left and was replaced by Semi Ojeleye, who played nine scoreless minutes and didn't register a stat. Langford wasn't a big part of the rotation anyway at this point and it looks like any chance of that is dwindling.

    Romeo Langford (right adductor strain) is doubtful to return to Thursday's Game 2.

    Langford was a surprise member of the rotation for tonight's game but his night looks like it could be over fairly quickly. If he's unable to return, Langford will finish with one assist and no other stats in one minute of action.

    Romeo Langford (right wrist ligaments) was available for Monday's game but played only the last seconds of the Celtics' 109-101 win over the Sixers.

    Langford went through practice on Sunday before getting cleared to participate in Game 1. He's not a major part of the Celtics' rotation at the moment.

    Romeo Langford (right wrist ligaments) is questionable to play on Monday.

    Langford went through practice on Sunday but the Celtics may still not be comfortable putting the rookie on the floor while he's dealing with torn ligaments. He's not going to be a fantasy factor even if he's healthy enough to play.

    Romeo Langford (right wrist ligaments) was able to go through practice on Sunday but is uncertain to play in Monday's Game 1 against the Sixers.

    The fact that Langford was able to participate today bodes well for his availability in the playoffs after it was hinted that surgery could be a possibility. The rookie won't be a big factor in the playoff rotation barring injuries ahead of him, so this shouldn't affect your playoff leagues.

    Romeo Langford has been diagnosed with torn ligaments in his right wrist and may not be available for the postseason.

    Brad Stevens seemed to hint that surgery will happen at some point, but for now it looks like it's a matter of Langford's pain tolerance. The rookie was not looking at huge minutes either way, but his potential absence is a hit to Boston's backcourt depth.

    Romeo Langford saw 30 minutes of action in Thursday's loss to the Wizards before exiting the game in the fourth quarter with a sprained right wrist.

    Langford put up an uninspiring line prior to the injury, posting just six points (3-of-9), four rebounds, four assists, and one turnover. Despite being drafted at the end of the lottery in 2019, Langford has failed to live up the hype in his rookie season. He continues to be an intriguing young prospect but will need to improve significantly to warrant fantasy appeal. He should be considered questionable for the start of the NBA Playoffs, not that he would log many minutes anyways.

    Brad Stevens expects Kemba Walker (left knee) to play 14-20 minutes during Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Stevens said that Walker's knee is feeling good, but he will be brought along slowly for precautionary reasons. Walker is expected to assume a full workload by the time the playoffs arrive. Brad Wanamaker, Javonte Green and Romeo Langford have seen expanded roles during scrimmage action.

    Romeo Langford (illness) returned to the lineup in Sunday's scrimmage, scoring nine points with three rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 12 minutes.

    More importantly, Brad Stevens said after the game that Langford may have a spot in the rotation in certain matchups. That's a bit of a surprise after the rookie played just 11.0 mpg in 27 appearances before the NBA shut down, but it's good news nonetheless. Regardless, Langford is only going to surface as a DFS punt play in those specific matchups.

    Romeo Langford (illness) is available to play in Sunday's scrimmage.

    Langford returned to practice on Saturday after sitting out Boston's first scrimmage. It's nice to see that he's healthy given the ramifications of any illness inside the bubble, but he's not a consideration in fantasy formats.

    Romeo Langford was able to practice on Saturday after an illness forced him to miss Friday's session.

    In the NBA world, illnesses are usually short-term concerns, but it's good to know that Langford's already feeling better considering the precautions in place inside the bubble. He won't see many minutes for the Celtics down the stretch.

    First round pick Romeo Langford appeared in just 27 games in his rookie year in Boston, battling an assortment of injuries and showing only glimpses of his talent while generating 449/448 value in 8/9-cat formats.

    Langford averaged just 11.0 minutes per game and while Brad Stevens was very encouraging of his young guard, he struggled to remain healthy and failed to gain any momentum during the season. The Celtics will absolutely be patient with their rookie and he is someone to buy-low in dynasty leagues after a disastrous first year.
