Gordon Hayward    G  Celtics

 

 

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.

Danny Ainge downplayed the idea of Gordon Hayward (leg) getting back to the court this season. "I don’t even want to go there. I’m not sure. That’s just all speculation," Ainge said when asked if he could just come back in the postseason if he’s healthy. "Gordon – he didn’t rule it out – but we’re all just sort of are not putting any pressure... It all depends and obviously, he’ll need a long time on the court and many practices before he would even consider playing in a game." It sounds like a regular-season return is not in the cards for Hayward, so there's no reason to stash him in re-draft leagues.

Gordon Hayward (leg) said his "mind is open" to the possibility of returning to game action this season. It was assumed that Hayward would miss the entirety of the 2017-18 season after the gruesome injury he suffered on opening night. However, speaking with reporters, Hayward acknowledged that he wouldn't shut the door on a late-season return. "I'm trying to get back as fast as I can. It all depends on how I heal, and taking it day-by-day, goal by goal. We'll see what happens," said Hayward. He can be left on waivers in re-draft leagues for now. We'll check back in couple months.

Gordon Hayward (leg) was out of his walking boot on Wednesday. This is great news for Hayward as he gets over his brutal opening night injury. The former Jazzman has said he's hopeful he can make it back this season, but he still has a long way to go before he's even doing on-court work. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum having big seasons has helped offset the loss of the All-Star forward.

Hayward (ankle) has shed his walking boot, Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com reports. There's a chance Hayward may have to use the boot again. But, that would only happen if his injury reacts poorly to the change, which is not expected. According to Hayward, "Today has been awesome without the boot." He's still far away from a full recovery, but there is a slim possibility he returns for the postseason. More word on his recovery and a clearer timetable for a return should emerge as he continues to hit rehabilitation milestones.

Gordon Hayward (leg) is hopeful to shed his walking boot for good "in the coming days." Hayward is still hopeful that he'll be able to get back to the court at some point this season, but that's far from a certainty, and he remains without an official timetable. For now, he belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues.

Gordon Hayward hasn’t given up on trying to play again this season. "I’m definitely pushing to get back as fast as I can, while making sure that I still have a lot of good years of basketball in me," he said. "And coming back early and hurting something else is not part of that plan. So I’m making sure that if I come back, I’m one-thousand percent confident in myself and my leg." It's still unlikely that we'll see him this season, but Hayward has been making solid progress and is scheduled to be out of his walking boot in a couple weeks.
