After today’s practice session, Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward spoke to the media and flagged a possible return from injury as early as tomorrow. Per Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston.
Gordon Hayward on his broken hand…— Chris Forsberg (@ChrisForsberg_) December 8, 2019
"Bone has healed, probably stronger than my right hand. There’s a plate in there with screws. The bone is good. … Tomorrow’s a possibility. See how I feel when I wake up, go through shootaround, see how it goes."

Gordon Hayward possibly playing tomorrow is about as good a result as the Celtics could have have hoped for given his injury. The bone is fully healed and he could give it a go. If not tomorrow, I'd expect him to play later this week with IND/PHI back-to-back on tap Wed/Thu.— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) December 8, 2019
