• Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward (right ankle sprain) will rejoin the Celtics in the bubble soon but is still a ways away from a full recovery.

    Initial projections had Hayward out for at least four weeks so the only real news here is his pending return to Orlando. Thus far his absence has been largely inconsequential for the Celtics as they've yet to drop a single playoff game. Marcus Smart has done a decent job stepping into the starting lineup, and the committee of Semi Ojeleye and Grant Willams have also soaked up some of Hayward's minutes at the 4, though neither has produced much value.
