Gordon Hayward travels with Celtics, but don’t get your hopes up

The Boston Globe Sports 26 days ago

Gordon Hayward traveled with the Celtics for the first time this season and again Stevens downplayed the move. Hayward, who broke his left tibia and dislocated his left ankle in the season opener against Cleveland, was taking 3-pointers while standing up this week. It is still uncertain if he will attempt to return this season.

Hayward will stay with the team for their games with the Lakers and Clippers and then remain in southern California for a week to continue rehabilitation. Hayward makes his offseason home in San Diego.

“One of the things we wanted to do is change his environment, just to move a little bit,” Stevens said. “The traveling looks like it could be early March as he can do all his rehab without an AlterG machine [anti-gravity treadmill]. He’s still got a long way to go, but he’s a really good spot shooter.

“People that have been through this long process, one of things about us is we’re jumping on a plane every five days and he’s used to that. We just wanted to have him here for a couple of games.”
