Gordon Hayward is not with the Celtics in the early going of the playoffs as the team is sending him to Indianapolis for the next phase of the rehab process to work with a leading specialist in running mechanics.
The announcement was made by Danny Ainge who added that he thinks Hayward is progressing nicely. Both the Celtics and Hayward have worked with the specialist before and even though the team does not expect the forward to return from his ankle injury until next season, the Celtics' priority is for Hayward to continue his rehab rather than be with the team.
