Romeo Langford suffers adductor strain in Game 2

New, comments

It’s another injury for the Celtics rookie.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Rookie guard Romeo Langford made a surprise appearance in the first quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

But his outing lasted all of 81 seconds.

Langford, who hadn’t played since Game 5 of the Boston Celtics series versus the Toronto Raptors, came in for Marcus Smart midway through the opening frame and quickly exited due to a right adductor strain. The Celtics said he was doubtful to return to the game.

Langford’s injury could have come on this possession when he had the difficult assignment of trying to guard Jimmy Butler. After Butler’s drive, Langford looks in obvious pain and is even doubled over for a moment as it looks he grabs his groin area.

Langford was already playing with torn ligaments in his wrist this postseason and the rookie just can’t seem to get away from the injury bug.
