Prior to Monday’s practice, the Celtics announced they’ve assigned Romeo Langford to their G League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.

Langford made his NBA debut at the very end of the win over the Bucks -- and only played 14.4 seconds.

Boston’s first selection in the 2019 NBA Draft (No. 14 overall) didn’t see much action before the start of the regular season either. He was still recovering from thumb surgery when Boston drafted him, so Langford didn’t play in summer league. He had a groin issue at the start of Celtics Training Camp and didn’t log minutes in the preseason until Boston’s second game -- then he injured his knee in his second appearance, which sidelined him for some time.
