Celtics: "significant optimism" Gordon Hayward (ankle) will be active for Game 3 on Saturday

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, there is significant optimism within the Celtics organization that Gordon Hayward will be available for Game 3 against the Heat on Saturday.

What It Means:

Hayward is still listed as questionable, but barring a setback, it appears he is likely to play. Our models expect him to see 20.5 minutes in his first game back. Marcus Smart would likely remain in the starting lineup, with Semi Ojeleye and/or Grant Williams seeing reduced minutes.

Hayward's Game 3 projection includes 10.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 20.3 FanDuel points.
