Gordon Hayward (sprained right ankle) reportedly had a hard workout on Monday, but still isn't practicing with his team yet.
Hayward seems to be recovering well but clearly won't be ready for Game 1 on Tuesday. The Celtics have fared just fine without him and Marcus Smart has had a number of exceptional games in his absence. Based on Brad Stevens' comments it is still going to be awhile before the team is comfortable letting Hayward back onto the court.
