Celtics Injury Report: Jaylen Brown, Al Horford Out Vs. Trail Blazers

Romeo Langford is questionable with a sprained ankle


Dec 4, 2021

The Boston Celtics continue their West Coast road trip, but will be shorthanded again Saturday night.

Jaylen Brown and Al Horford both have been ruled out, while Romeo Langford is questionable against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Horford, dealing with lower back stiffness, certainly earned his night off after stringing together two phenomenal games. At 35 years old, he’ll sit out the second night of a back-to-back.

Langford got an opportunity in Friday’s exciting loss to the Utah Jazz, but was ruled out with an ankle sprain at halftime after driving to the basket.

Brown misses a second-straight game, still day-to-day as he continues to manage his workload while coming back from the hamstring injury he endured Nov. 4. Brown had missed eight games before his return Nov. 22 against the Houston Rockets.

The Celtics and Blazers tip off at 10 p.m. ET.
