Gordon Hayward was having a bounce back season from the down year he had last year before suffering a fractured left hand back in November.  He was back to the player the Celtics signed prior to suffering a gruesome ankle injury in his first regular season game for Boston.

On Friday, head coach Brad Stevens provided an update on Hayward’s injury and said there’s a good chance he returns before Christmas.  That’s great news for the Celtics star.
