Gordon Hayward Says He Still Hopes To Play For The Celtics This Season

Maybe there is credence to Boston Celtics announcer Mike Gorman’s recent statement that he believes Gordon Hayward will return this season. According to Gorman, the longtime Celtics play-by-play announcer, said back in January he thought we would see Hayward in a Celtics uniform again this season. On Wednesday morning, he doubled down and said he believes Heyward will return in time for the postseason.

“Everybody tells me he is working out eight, nine hours a day, just religiously working out, doing everything they ask of him and more,” Gorman said. “It seems to me if Gordan Hayward thought his next basketball game he was going to be in next October, he might not be working out nine hours a day right now.

Celtics had coach Brad Stevens has downplayed any chance of Hayward returning but now Gordon himself has offered a glimpse of hope for Celtics fans about his chances of returning.
