Gordon Hayward (right ankle sprain) has been officially ruled out for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Heat on Tuesday.
This was a mere formality with Hayward yet to practice with the team despite returning to the bubble over a week ago. It has been close to a month since Hayward suffered the injury, putting him right at the initial four-week timetable. The current vibe is that he is still a ways from returning to action but the hope is that he will be able to get back out there at some point during the Conference Finals.
