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.
