Robert Williams tweaked his groin during the Celtics’ pre-practice work on Tuesday. He received MRI, but the Celtics aren’t concerned.
“(Team doctors) didn’t think it was anything big,” Brad Stevens said. “He wasn’t going full speed or anything when it happened.”
There were a few Celtics who did go full speed at practice on Monday after sitting out Sunday’s preseason opener against the Hornets.
Romeo Langford was live from start to finish for the first time. He had yet to play 5-on-5 because he’d tweaked his groin.
“I thought he did a lot of good things (today),” Stevens said. “It was encouraging. In some ways, maybe it’s good to watch for five days and get your feet wet that way.”
Daniel Theis was also active. He missed the preseason opener with an abductor strain.
Gordon Hayward was back in action. He logged 22 minutes on Sunday, but didn’t re-enter the game after he received treatment from team doctors on his left elbow.
Hayward did wear an arm sleeve at Tuesday’s practice and his elbow was sore. He did not receive an MRI for the injury.
Also, Hayward can’t pinpoint when he exactly aggravated his elbow on Sunday.
“I think I just fell on it,” he said. “Couldn’t exactly remember when it happened. We took a look at the film, there was, kind of, one play. Just bruised up pretty badly, but it’ll be all right.”
