Hayward won’t rule out return for Celtics

Gordon Hayward was supposed to a key component in the Boston Celtics' success this season before a gruesome opening night ankle injury ended his year. Coach Brad Stevens continued to adamantly rule out the 27-year-old small forward's return earlier this week, but Hayward seems to have an open mind. Speaking at a gym unveiling at a Boston-area middle school, Hayward sounded optimistic about his progress.

Gordon Hayward on chances of Celtics return this season: ‘The hope is still there’

Two weeks after suffering a horrific left ankle injury mere minutes into his first game as a member of the Boston Celtics, Gordon Hayward declared himself out for the rest of the 2017-18 NBA season. In the months since Hayward’s devastating opening-night injury, Hayward and the Celtics have kept the door to a Hayward return ever so slightly ajar. As the 27-year-old forward has progressed from surgery to sit-down shooting to getting out of his ankle boot, Celtics fans have continued to hold out hope that the former Utah Jazz star who chose Boston as one of last summer’s most sought-after free agents would be able to get back on the court in time to bolster their team’s chances of toppling LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers (or whoever else winds up atop the Eastern Conference) and returning to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.
