The Boston Celtics have been battling injuries and COVID-19 all year, but it finally seems the team is getting closer to full health.
Head coach Brad Stevens provided updates on the duo Friday during his media availability.
“Both are doing a little bit more. Payton’s a lot closer than Romeo,” he told reporters. “But I don’t know what that means.”
Pritchard’s original timeline was at least two weeks, and reportedly could return as early as the Celtics’ Feb. 3 game against the Sacramento Kings.
Langford’s timeline always has been unknown, but getting both back into the lineup certainly will be beneficial to Boston.
