Danny Ainge told @985TheSportsHub Gordon Hayward had a setback in his rehab for a couple weeks about a month ago. "We were progressing a little bit too fast, we thought." #Celtics still aren't planning to have him this year, to no surprise. He's still not on the basketball court.

Ainge says the rehab was “progressing a little bit too fast.”
Per 98.5 The Sports Hub:
“He’s doing great,” Ainge said of Hayward. “He’s had one setback – for a couple of weeks, maybe a month and a half ago. We were progressing a little bit too fast, we thought. But other than that, his work ethic and his determination has been amazing.
“I don’t want to get people’s hopes up. He’s still not back on the basketball court, and we have a month left in the regular season. So he’s got a ways to go, but we’re excited about his progress and his determination.”
