There have been whispers about the possibility of Gordon Hayward returning to play for the Boston Celtics this season.
However, Boston coach Brad Stevens put an end to any thoughts Hayward, who suffered a gruesome left-leg injury on opening night against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena, being back on the floor this season while giving an update on Hayward’s rehabilitation progress.
"I've said all year, not coming back. It's the way I've operated. It's the way we've looked at it."https://t.co/tzxmUhSHxk

“It doesn’t look like it’s any time in the next couple of weeks,” Stevens said.“We talked the other day. He’s gonna do another alter-G process or progress starting on Sunday where he goes from 60 percent of his body weight all the way to 100, and then once he gets to 100 — once he can do stuff where he’s running or jumping, then it makes sense to bring him on the road.”
Even though the Celtics received an injured player exception, Hayward would be eligible to return, if he were to be medically cleared.
