Celtics Optimistic For Gordon Haywards Return In Game 3 Of Eastern Conference Finals

BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Celtics should get a bit of a boost Saturday night when they take on the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Gordon Hayward may return after missing Boston’s last 12 games with an ankle injury.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted on Saturday, “Barring a setback in pregame warmups, there’s significant optimism within the Celtics that forward Gordon Hayward (right ankle) will be active to play in Game 3 vs. Miami, sources tell ESPN.”

Barring a setback in pregame warmups, there’s significant optimism within the Celtics that forward Gordon Hayward (right ankle sprain) will be active to play in Game 3 vs. Miami tonight, sources tell ESPN. After missing a month, Hayward offers a sizable boost for Boston’s bench.

— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) September 19, 2020

Hayward suffered the injury — a Grade 3 sprain — back on Aug. 17 in Boston’s first game of the postseason. He has been ramping up his activity over the last week and was upgraded to “questionable” on Friday.

According to the Celtics Twitter account, Head Coach Brad Stevens said before the game, “He’ll warm up and we’ll see.”

Hayward update – #Celtics @wbz https://t.co/AbWCvoKcWN

— Dan Roche (@RochieWBZ) September 19, 2020

The Celtics are looking to climb out of an 0-2 series hole against the Heat.

Hayward had his best season with the Celtics during the regular season, hitting 50 percent of his shots while averaging 17.5 points and a career-high 6.7 rebounds per game. While he may not be in game shape after a lengthy layoff, the Celtics could use Hayward’s shooting and playmaking against a Miami zone defense that has stifled their offense for stretches over the first two games of the series.

Game 3 is set to tip off just after 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening.
