Celtics Star-to-be Gordon Hayward is scheduled to take off his walking boot on his injured leg for good starting today.
Everyone in the Celtics organization from GM Danny Ainge down to Coach Stevens has recently offered praise and encouragement regarding Hayward’s recovery progress.
Speculation about a return this season by Hayward has gone from wishful hoping to danced around insinuation in the months since the initial injury during the openings minutes of the opening game of the season.
The official Celtics stance remains that Hayward is “not expected” to play again this season. But there as long way between “not expected” and “ruled out”.
Listen to some Celtics Fan ear candy below and consider it an early Holiday gift as Coach Stevens says, “he’s not expected back buuuuuut…….”
