Will Wednesday be the day Romeo Langford finally makes his season debut?

The Boston Celtics guard missed time to start the season due to offseason wrist surgery, then his return to the court was put on hold after he was placed into the NBA's health and safety protocols. Ahead of Wednesday night matchup vs. the Dallas Mavericks, Langford is listed on the C's injury report as "questionable."

Stevens provides long-awaited update on Langford's status

To add to the good news for the C's, Jaylen Brown (left hip contusion) has been upgraded to questionable after missing Monday night's loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. Semi Ojeleye (left side strain) and Tristan Thompson (health and safety protocols) will remain out.

If Langford does return, don't expect the 21-year-old to see big minutes right away.

"He's not gonna be able to play long stints for a while," Stevens said Monday, "We may be able to throw him in there in one of these upcoming games at home for a couple of minutes at a time, but that's about it."

Tip-off for Wednesday's C's-Mavs game is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
