Brad Stevens said that Gordon Hayward will return to the Boston Celtics lineup in their upcoming series against the Miami Heat, but he didn’t have exact details.
“I think he’ll be back at some point in that series, but I don’t know when,” said Stevens after the Celtics’ game 7 win over the Raptors.
Hayward, who returned to the bubble earlier this week, cleared quarantine.
Hayward was initially ruled out for four weeks with a sprained ankle, with September 15th marking the end of that timetable.
