Stevens: Hayward, Irving should be cleared August 1

Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics are expecting All-Star reinforcements by August 1. Kyrie Irving, coming back from knee surgery, and Gordon Hayward, out since his debut with the team Oct. 17 with a fractured left ankle, are progressing toward five-on-five pickup games and should be cleared weeks in advance of the start of training camp, Stevens said. "I've been told they'll both be going, if not full tilt, then pretty close to full tilt by the end of July, so August first-ish," said Stevens.

Brad Stevens believes that both Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving will be ready to join a loaded Celtics roster in time for the start of next season. The Boston Celtics had a remarkable season that saw them finish one win short of the NBA Finals despite losing All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward for the season well before the playoffs started. Both Irving and Hayward suffered setbacks due to complications from surgical implants to repair broken bones.

Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward is expected to be back at full strength this off-season. The 28-year-old signed a four-year, $128million contract with the Celtics in July, but he suffered a gruesome leg injury in Boston's 2017-18 opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers and missed the rest of the season. Boston coach Brad Stevens told The Boston Globe that Hayward is close to completing his comeback.
