Three Celtics weren’t full participants at practice on Saturday: Robert Williams, Romeo Langford and Tacko Fall.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Williams (concussion) and Langford (knee) are both progressing. Williams was shooting around at practice. Brad Stevens said Langford “is getting better every day.”

Langford is still on pace to be a full participant in the upcoming week. Tuesday is Stevens’ target date for Williams to be fully active.

Fall was hit in the head after individual work on Friday and did not feel well, so he was held out of Saturday’s practice. He has not entered the concussion protocol and is not expected to — though he will be monitored.

“It sounds like (the medical staff is) just being very cautious about that,” Stevens said.
