Brad Stevens opened up about the recovery of Gordon Hayward, who is dealing with an ankle injury.

The head coach of the Boston Celtics said Hayward has made progress, but there is still no timetable for his return.

“I don’t know when the quarantine period will end. I think they will determine it through a set of doctors and all that stuff, how long that is. But my understanding is that I know he’s back, and I haven’t seen him because he’s been in a room.

Rehab seems to be going okay. He feels a little bit better. I don’t think his gait is perfect yet. Once his gait feels right and becomes perfect he’s probably on a quicker course to coming back.

I think he’ll rejoin us in the bubble at some point soon, but he still will be some time away when he does do that,” Stevens said after Monday’s Game 5 victory (per masslive.com).

Hayward got injured in Game 1 of the first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.
