Romeo Langford has been dealing with injuries but once he returned to the court he has become a key part of the Boston Celtics 2nd unit.
Langford was a stud coming out of high school and performed well at Indiana. He averaged 16.5 points and 5.4 rebounds a game.

You got a glimpse of the type of guy Langford was when he was at Indiana. He played 26 games with a torn ligament in his thumb.
His draft stock dropped a little even as a result. Langford could have sat out and ensured his place at the top of the draft but he chose to play out the season for a struggling Indiana team.
This thumb injury followed Langford to the NBA but we are finally getting to see him play some serious minutes.
In his last two games, Langford has played 28 minutes. With injuries piling up he even got the first start of his career.
Langford’s latest game showed how much potential he has. Coming off the bench he scored 16 points and snagged 5 rebounds. Langford had some key shots late in the game to ensure that the Boston Celtics would walk away victorious.
At 20 years old, Langford has so much raw potential. He looks like he will be a major part of the Celtics 2nd unit as the season progresses.
The Celtics have done so well in the draft recently. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have become part of Boston’s foundation. Langford isn’t at that level yet but it will be interesting to see how much he grows.
But we have seen the potential of Langford as of late and I expect him to be a key part of the Celtics 2nd unit as the season progresses.
