Romeo Langford (calf) ruled out against Rockets

Celtics have ruled Romeo Langford out tonight against the Houston Rockets with left calf tightness.

Just hours after the team announced that Jaylen Brown would sit out with left patella tendinopathy, the Celtics are now two players short in their backcourt with Langford also set to miss tonight's matchup.

With the Celtics playing a second night of a back-to-back Monday against the Charlotte Hornets, it's unknown if both Brown and Langford will return tomorrow.

The depth at guard outside of Marcus Smart includes; Dennis Schröder, Josh Richardson, Payton Pritchard, Aaron Nesmith and Two-Way signee Brodric Thomas.

Boston and the Rockets tip-off at 7:00 PM ET on NBATV from the Toyota Center.
