Hayward produced 10 points (2-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, and five assists in 33 minutes during Friday's 123-116 Game 3 loss to the Bucks.
Hayward provided a fairly well-rounded stat line while earning more minutes than all but three of his teammates (Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Kyrie Irving). Hayward has now reached double figures in scoring in three of the last four games (and five of seven during this playoff run). Moreover, he bounced back from a disastrous performance in Tuesday's Game 2 (five points on one-of-five from the field) and has seen at least 30 minutes in six of the first seven postseason matchups.
Hayward finished with five points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three assists over 31 minutes in the Celtics' loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
Although he continues to get solid minutes off the bench, Hayward has been highly forgettable with his opportunities for Boston this postseason. Returning from a devastating leg injury suffered in 2017, Hayward just hasn't looked himself for most of this season. He's averaging 11.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists through six playoff appearances in 2019.
Hayward delivered 13 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in Sunday's convincing 112-90 Game 1 road win over the Bucks.
Hayward once again delivered an efficient scoring boost off the bench for the C's. The veteran forward is now averaging 12.4 points, 4.8 boards and 2.4 dimes during 31 minutes per game through five playoff contests. Expect him to continue with his Manu Ginobili role, despite injuries to Marcus Smart and Aron Baynes, as Boston faces the Bucks Tuesday for Game 2.
Hayward finished with 20 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 victory over the Pacers.
Hayward dropped a team-high 20 points Sunday as the Celtics closed out a four-game sweep of the Pacers. Hayward had his best game of the playoffs and is certainly trending in the right direction. His recovery from injury has been a long and drawn out process but perhaps he is beginning to turn the corner. If he manages to build on this effort, it certainly increases the Celtics' chances of making even more noise in the playoffs.
Hayward contributed 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and five rebounds in 28 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Pacers.
Hayward was one of three Celtics to reach double-figures scoring in Wednesday's Game 2 win. Hayward appeared to have found his rhythm towards the end of the regular season and has translated the momentum into two solid playoff performances. While he's averaging just 11.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in the first two games, he's played an average of 29.0 minutes of the bench, good for third best on the team for Round 1.
Hayward will sit out of Tuesday's game against Washington due to left ankle soreness, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.
The Celtics are giving the majority of their rotation players the night off in the final regular-season matchup, so there's very little concern about Hayward's ankle at this point. He's expected to be ready to go for the first game of the postseason this weekend.
Hayward scored 21 points (9-9 FG, 3-3 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's 117-97 win over the Pacers.
It's been a rough season for Hayward, but he's wrapping it up on a high note, averaging 17.0 points, 5.5 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 28.0 minutes over the last six games. That production still doesn't match what he was able to do as a starter in Utah, but the 29-year-old could be the secret weapon Boston needs if they're going to make a deep playoff run.
Hayward delivered 25 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 12-13 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one block across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 112-102 road win over the Heat.
Hayward came off the bench to lead all scorers via very efficient shooting. The absence of Jaylen Brown (back) also opened up more minutes for Hayward. The bearded small forward has now led the Celtics in scoring for two of their last three games. Boston now heads to Indiana for a key playoff seed match-up on Friday night versus the Pacers.
Hayward totaled 19 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal over 29 minutes in the Celtics' loss to the Nets on Saturday.
Hayward's 19 points were his most in nine games, and he scored them on an efficient 7-12 shooting from the floor. He had a solid stat line in Saturday's loss, though he hasn't been consistent for fantasy owners this season. He's started just two games since Jan. 1 and is averaging 25.5 minutes per game on the season.
Hayward finished with 13 points (4-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds, and three assists in 34 minutes during Sunday's 115-96 loss to San Antonio.
Hayward returned after missing three games due to a concussion, ending the loss with 13 points and 10 rebounds. The Celtics were smashed in this game and so the fact he played 33 minutes is certainly a good sign. As he works his way back from the concussion, the Celtics are going to need him to be much better than he has been for the majority of the season. Despite the name recognition, Hayward has been a fringe standard league player this season, much to the disappointment of many GM's.
Hayward (concussion) will be available to play in Sunday's game against the Spurs, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.
Hayward was sidelined for over a week due to a concussion, but it appears he has cleared protocol and will be a full go in Sunday's contest. Without Jayson Tatum (back) against the Spurs, Hayward should see an increase in usage off the bench.
Hayward (concussion) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Spurs.
Hayward hasn't played in more than a week as he continues to deal with concussion symptoms. The hope is that he'll be cleared prior to tip-off, but at this point his status is firmly up in the air.
Hayward (concussion) is out Saturday against the Hornets.
As expected, Hayward won't play Saturday as he makes his way through concussion protocol. It's possible he suits up Sunday against the Spurs.

This has been the expectation since the team announced Hayward would miss Wednesday's game -- his second consecutive absence due to a concussion, which he suffered Saturday against Atlanta. Keep an eye on Hayward's status over the next two days heading into the weekend.
Hayward (concussion) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia.
Originally listed as doubtful coming into Wednesday, it's reported that Hayward is still in concussion protocol and, as a result, will miss the key matchup with the 76ers on Wednesday. Hayward excited Saturday's contest against the Hawks early after colliding awkwardly on a screen with an opponent. Jayson Tatum will again presumably start Wednesday, with Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris possibly seeing an increased role at the small-forward position against the 76ers.
Hayward (concussion) will not play Monday against the Nuggets and will likely remain out Wednesday versus the 76ers, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Hayward was pulled from Saturday's game in the first quarter with what the team initially deemed a neck strain, but he's since entered the league's concussion protocol. Coach Brad Stevens confirmed Hayward will be held out Monday, and he intimated that he doesn't expect to get the wing back until Saturday's game in Charlotte, at the earliest.
Hayward is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Nuggets as he is in the NBA's concussion protocol, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Hayward left Saturday's game against the Hawks due to a strained neck.
Hayward was blindsided by a screen and collided awkwardly, causing the injury. It's possible he lands on the injury report ahead of Monday's contest against the Nuggets.
Hayward contributed 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes in the Celtics' 120-107 win over the Lakers on Saturday.
Hayward stepped up with a bench-leading scoring total in the win, a haul that also served as his third straight double-digit point tally. The nine-year veteran has actually found extended stretches of consistent offense hard to come by this season, as he's generated just one such longer streak during the campaign. Hayward's current surge has been the result of outstanding shooting, with the 28-year-old draining 70.6 percent of his attempts across his last three games.
