Every signal has suggested Gordon Hayward is right on track.

Now, hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.

A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston:

The Celtics won 55 games without Hayward last season then reached the conference finals with Kyrie Irving sidelined, too.

There could be growing pains early in the season. The players who stepped up in the postseason and those now-healthy stars must learn to coexist, and Hayward and Irving must get back to full speed.

But, man, the present and future look bright in Boston.
