Jaylen Brown (hip) available against the Mavericks; Romeo Langford remains out

New, comments

Boston will get some of its wing depth back with the return of its All-Star wing.

Jaylen Brown sat out Monday night’s game with a hip injury, but he’ll be back tonight as the Boston Celtics continue their seven-game homestand tonight against the Dallas Mavericks.

Romeo Langford remains out for post Health and Safety Protocol Reconditioning, but after seeing him shoot around on the court Monday evening prior to the game against the New Orleans Pelicans, it’s safe to assume that he’ll at least be back some time in the near future – perhaps even later this week. Romeo Langford has yet to make his season debut this year after recovering from wrist surgery and then immediately going into the Health and Safety Protocols (the Celtics lead the league in most games missed because of the H&SPs).

The Celtics certainly could have used Jaylen Brown on Monday after a close loss against the Pelicans in which new addition Evan Fournier went scoreless. This will be the the first time the Celtics will get a look at all six of its best players together, so it’ll be interesting to see how the rotation shakes out now that there’s a higher talent level available in the wing rotation. Brown missed just one game with a hip injury that was seemingly sustained in Saturday night’s win against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Tristan Thompson remains out in the H&SPs.

The Boston Celtics will take on the Dallas Mavericks tonight at 7:30 PM EST.
