Gordon Hayward is back in the active roster for Game 3 versus the Miami Heat, as the Boston Celtics announced today.

Hayward lost significant time due to an ankle injury, which occurred in the Celtics vs. Sixers first-round playoff series.

Hayward missed the first two games of the Heat series but was listed as questionable in advance of Game 3.

Without Hayward, the Celtics finished off a first-round sweep against Philadelphia before taking down the defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors in seven hard-fought games.
