Gordon Hayward sends major injury update to Boston Celtics fans

Gordon Hayward sends major injury update to Boston Celtics fans

Hayward, who suffered a gruesome ankle injury nearly a year ago in the Celtics' 2017 season opener, said he's been playing 5-on-5 for a few weeks now, but there's still one final hurdle to clear as he ramps up for the 2018-19 campaign.

"I would say I'm basically 100 percent", Hayward said.

"It's so much fun being able to play again, and play with my teammates", Hayward said Thursday.

He added that he fully expects to play in the Celtics season opener on October 16.

Other players did their best to keep up his spirits: One time, Aron Baynes brought back some Krispy Kreme doughnuts from a road trip and drove them over to Hayward's house. "These past few weeks and the next probably month or so will be good to get back into the game".

"The last step for me, as far as from a physical standpoint, is just the little explosion, that little last juice [and] bounce that you get", he said. He's looking to regain his timing and rhythm, and he is eager to regain the groove with his teammates.

"Very anxious", Hayward said.

Hayward had hoped to return from his ankle injury before the end of last season but suffered a further setback when he was told he needed more surgery back in May. "We're anxious about winning and putting another banner up".

Yes, this was a big press conference, essentially a second welcome for All-Star wing Gordon Hayward. That means that Irving rumors have been swirling for some time and, even if the Celtics play fantastic basketball this season, the whispers won't fully die until he puts pen to paper on a new contract, either in Boston or elsewhere. According to their own description, the course is created to help professional athletes be more prepared for "business activities during and after their active sports careers".
