Gordon Hayward's dad on son's return this year: 'I don’t think that’s really possible'

MINNEAPOLIS – It seems everyone has their own take on Gordon Hayward’s recovery and the prospect of him suiting up at some point this season for the Boston Celtics – including his father Gordon Hayward Sr.

In an interview with Utah Jazz beat writer Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News, Gordon Sr. gave his thoughts on his son’s recovery process. 

“He’s working his tail off and if he could play that would be great,” said Gordon’s father and then added, “But I don’t think that’s really possible. He’s not even running or jumping yet.”
