Larkin was last in uniform during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Stevens did say that the point guard is, “coming along well,” and “making good progress”, which bodes well for a potential return later in the series.
The Eastern Conference Finals return to TD Garden on Wednesday night at 8:30 PM EST with the series tied at two games apiece.
