WATCH: Gordon Hayward Gets Back On The Court, Drains Half-Court Shot
Just a few weeks after Gordon Hayward suffered a season-ending injury to his leg he’s back on the court, and he clearly hasn’t lost his stroke.
The Boston Celtics star, who fractured his ankle in his first game with the team, posted a video to Instagram on Tuesday in which the sharp shooter knocks down a half-court shot sitting in a chair.
“Gotta have some fun within the grind! Can you make a half court shot in a chair? (harder than it looks),” Hayward captioned the post.
Last week, the 27-year-old small forward said that he’s been shooting from a chair as part of his rehabilitation routine, and it looks like it’s coming along pretty well so far.
While Hayward was a huge addition in the offseason for the completely restructured Boston team, the Celtics have been doing pretty well with him on the sidelines. Boston point guard Kyrie Irving has led the Cs on an impressive nine-game win streak and a 9-2 record on the season in his absence.
Still, it’s good to see Hayward back on the hardwood and in good spirits.
