The Garden Report: Is Gordon Hayward going to be ok for Celtics?

Hayward is 9-for-30 over his last two games as Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker sat. Is his offensive inconsistency a concern?

The Garden Report staff is not ready to ship Gordon Hayward out of town after a pair of poor performances. The production may not meet the price tag.

Trags loves his settling effect as a secondary ball handler, while Josue Pavon points out the return will not be great for a massive outgoing salary with a foot concern.

The crew also broke down another disappointing loss to the Suns and the flurry of record performances against Boston’s defense. With all this defensive turmoil, can we still get excited about Marcus Smart’s record-breaking performance on Saturday?

So what do you think?

Is Hayward criticism warranted, as he has not risen to the occasion for his struggling team? Or does this problem transcend what he’s going through?
