Celtics Spotlight: It's all about the future for oft-injured Romeo Langford

Celtics Spotlight: It's all about the future for oft-injured Romeo Langford

NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-76ers starts at 6:30pm Wednesday with Celtics Pregame Live, and then Mike & Tommy have the call of the game at 7:30pm.

Romeo Langford didn’t have any preconceived ideas of how his early days as an NBA player. 

But this is certainly not what he had in mind. 

After healing up from a thumb injury suffered in college, Langford was out for summer league and limited in some capacity for most of training camp with a groin injury and later, a knee sprain. 

Spotlights: Walker | Smart | Brown | Hayward | Kanter |

Tatum | Fall | Wanamaker | Ojeleye | Edwards R. Williams | Theis Poirier G. Williams

Those setbacks have created this narrative in the minds of many that the 19-year-old — while talented — can’t stay healthy enough to see that talent through which makes him one of the bigger mysteries on the Celtics roster. 

It’s a successful season for Langford if… 

...he can carve out a role as a change-of-pace playmaker off Boston’s bench. A solidly built 6-foot-6 wing, Langford’s versatility gives Boston a plug-and-play option with the skills to play multiple positions. He shot the ball poorly in college, in part because of torn ligaments in his right (shooting hand) thumb. It's an injury that Langford still managed to play with for the final 24 games of the season. In limited playing time with the Celtics, he has shown himself to have a good feel for how to get into the lane and finish at the rim due to a 216-pound frame that he uses well once in the paint.

It’s a disappointing season for Langford if … 

...injuries prevent him from playing close to the promise he showed two years ago as one of the best high school players to come out of Indiana. Multiple health setbacks prevented Langford from playing in summer league and limited him to just two preseason games. Because of that, expectations are low as to what Langford will contribute to the Celtics this season. 

 
2019-2020 Outlook

The injuries that have sidelined Romeo Langford by and large have been minor; just enough to keep him off the floor, unfortunately. But with the games coming fast and furious in the NBA relative to what Langford experienced in his lone season in college at Indiana, this season is going to be more about lessons learned than playing for the youngest member of the Celtics roster. And that’s OK. Because the upside with Langford’s game is great enough to where the Celtics can bring him along slowly, knowing that the experience gained through the rigors of the NBA schedule combined with his immense potential talent-wise, gives hope that in time Langford can be a key contributor to this franchise’s quest to get back in the hunt for Banner 18 soon.

Celtics rookies Tacko Fall, Romeo Langford ruled out for opener vs. 76ers

Celtics rookies Tacko Fall, Romeo Langford ruled out for opener vs. 76ers

NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-76ers starts at 6:30pm Wednesday with Celtics Pregame Live, and then Mike & Tommy have the call of the game at 7:30pm.

The Boston Celtics will be without two of their rookies for Wednesday night's season-opening game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center.

The C's officially announced Tuesday that center Tacko Fall and Romeo Langford won't play in Philly. 

Fall, who was signed by the Celtics as an undrafted free agent and has become a fan favorite, is in the concussion protocol. Boston selected Langford with the No. 14 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, and he's battling a knee injury.

Second-year center Robert Williams has been in the concussion protocol of late, but the Celtics expect him to be ready for Opening Night.

The Celtics-76ers rivalry has been pretty one-sided of late, with Boston winning 10 of the last 13 matchups including the playoffs. The 76ers shook up their roster over the summer with a few big roster moves, and that included signing Celtics forward Al Horford in free agency. These storylines, and several others have created plenty of buzz entering Wednesday night's showdown between the C's and Sixers, which tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Boston.
