Gordon Hayward (leg) said the plan is to start traveling with the Celtics in March. He continues to make progress, but the Celtics aren't giving him a timetable and it's still considered doubtful that we'll see him play again this season.

Hayward posted a personal blog Monday that indicated he's slowly progressing with his rehab activity on an anti-gravity AlterG treadmill, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports. "I started at like 30 percent of my body weight, doing a single-leg calf raise. And now we're slowly up to like 70 percent, 75 percent. And so, I'm almost there, being able to do a single-leg calf raise," Hayward wrote. "Once I am able to do that, then I can do the elliptical. And once I'm cleared doing the elliptical for a certain time and distance, then I'm able to start running." It sounds like Hayward is making positive progress in his recovery from the fractured left ankle he suffered on opening night, but the expectation remains that he won't play again during the 2017-18 season. In addition to increasing his activity on the treadmill, Hayward has been able to do stationary work on the basketball court, as the Celtics haven't cleared him to resume jumping yet.

Gordon Hayward (leg) is not expected to play this season according to coach Brad Stevens. "He makes a lot of shots standing still. I mean, a lot. Like, he’s a heck of a standstill shooter now," Stevens said. "And he’s really good in a chair, too. But nothing new. We don’t anticipate him being back this season." Hayward is making really good progress, but maybe Stevens is just trying to take the pressure off him.

Gordon Hayward (leg) could begin traveling with the Celtics in March. "I’d say that the traveling looks like it could be early March as he can maybe do all of his rehab without an Alter-G machine and those types of things," head coach Brad Stevens said. "He’s still got a long way to go." Maybe Hayward will be able to get back out there for the playoffs, but it would be beyond shocking to see him take the court again during the regular season this year. He belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues.

Gordon Hayward is no longer wearing an ankle brace, but coach Brad Stevens said there's still a "long way to go." "[All] the way from the surgery to the rehab and everything else, it’s been great," Stevens said of Hayward's recovery. "That said, he hasn’t done anything on the court. So, there’s so many boxes still to check. It’s great that he’s making good strides, but the timelines and those things don’t change." The Celtics aren't giving him an official timetable and he's considered doubtful to return during the regular season, but both the team and Hayward have said that they are hopeful that he could be back for playoffs.

Hayward is no longer wearing a brace to stabilize his left ankle, but Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said the team's expectations for the forward's recovery timetable haven't changed, Jay King of MassLive.com reports. Though Hayward seems to be coming along quicker than initially anticipated after fracturing his ankle in the season opener and requiring surgery, but it remains highly unlikely that he'll play again at any point in 2017-18. The Celtics haven't formally ruled Hayward out for the season, but the team probably won't alter his timetable until he's able to progress toward some on-court activity.
