Celtics’ Romeo Langford Shares Update On Recovery From Hand Injury


CANTON, Mass. — When Boston Celtics training camp begins Tuesday, Romeo Langford will be a full go.

The Celtics’ first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft had been dealing with a thumb injury suffered last fall. He got surgery right after his college season ended, then rehabbed it through the summer, missing summer league as a result.

But during media day Monday, Langford indicated he is 100 percent.

“My hand is 100 percent, I don’t feel any pain with it,” Langford said. “It’s been a real good adjustment coming back from it, also working out now with no restrictions. I feel like I’m getting better every day this summer, getting back to being ready for training camp.

“I feel a lot more confident, just being able to play without anything on my thumb. I was worried about something being on my hand while I’m shooting, but now I’m feeling back to normal. It feels a lot more normal now.”

Provided he plays, the Celtics will get their first look at Langford in game action Sunday in a preseason game against the Charlotte Hornets.
