As noted, this isn’t the exact same ankle that was a section of Hayward’s ugly injuries a 12 months and a fifty percent ago, so you can exhale. The fact that he’s questionable and not dominated out right away is a good indication as effectively.
This season, Hayward is averaging 11.2 details, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists while taking pictures 43.8% from the industry, 33.7% from the 3-issue line and a vocation-higher 85.2% from the freethrow line in 26 minutes per activity. Currently, Hayward has played extremely effectively in the month of February as he rounds again into type.
This culminated with a 26-issue general performance against the Philadephia 76ers to assistance direct the team in Kyrie Irving’s absence as effectively as an 18-issue outing the upcoming evening against the Detroit Pistons with even considerably less gamers accessible.
Boston would certainly appreciate these sorts of performances a lot more consistently in the course of the publish-All Star Sport extend that the Celtics experience heading into the NBA Playoffs. The Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks tomorrow at 8PM EST on TNT.
