Hayward exploded for 27 points (10-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 114-111 win over the Pacers.
Hayward collected his eighth double-double through 45 appearances this season, and he's now just one away from matching his career high from back in 2013-14. The 29-year-old wing is having a superb campaign and continues to provide very well-rounded production combined with excellent efficiency.
Hayward totaled 24 points (9-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, a steal and two blocks in Sunday's loss to Oklahoma City.
Hayward led the team in scoring and was the only Celtic to top 20 points on a night when Boston shot just 41.3 percent from the field. After missing the last two contests with a knee issue, Hayward played without restriction, seeing 38 minutes in a game that went down to the wire.
Coach Brad Stevens said Hayward (knee) would be available for Sunday's game against the Thunder without a minute restriction.
Hayward's bruised right knee apparently checked out fine during the Celtics' shootaround earlier in the day, so he'll likely reclaim his spot in the starting five after a two-game absence. With Jaylen Brown (hamstring) sidelined for another contest, Hayward will likely rank as the Celtics' third option behind Jaysom Tatum and Kemba Walker during his most of his time on the court Sunday.
Hayward (knee) is probable for Sunday's matchup against the Thunder, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
A bruised right knee has kept Hayward on the sideline over the Celtics' past two games, but it appears he's likely ready to make his return. More information may arrive following the Celtics' morning shootaround. It's possible Hayward will be on a minutes limit in his first game back.
Hayward (knee) won't play Friday against the Jazz, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Hayward (knee) will not play Wednesday against the Cavs.
A bruised knee limited Hayward to just 17 minutes in Tuesday's OT loss to the Nets, and while he downplayed the injury after the game, the Celtics will play it safe and hold him out on the second night of a back-to-back. With Jaylen Brown (hamstring) and Kemba Walker (knee) also out, Boston will be down three starters on the road.
Hayward (knee) considers himself day-to-day due to soreness in his knee, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Hayward didn't seem too concerned with his knee injury after Tuesday's loss to the Nets, in which he exited after playing 17 minutes. The Celtics take on the Cavaliers on Wednesday in the second half of a back-to-back, which leaves Hayward's status up in the air at the moment.
Hayward will not return to Tuesday's tilt against the Nets due to a right knee contusion, A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Hayward had accumulated seven points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3PT), one rebound and two assists across 17 minutes before exiting the contest. Javonte Green started the second half in his place. The severity of his injury is unknown at this time.
Hayward posted 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and three steals across 41 minutes in Saturday's 111-110 loss to the Rockets.
The team's latter performance mirrored that of Hayward, who scored four points (2-8 FG, 0-4 FT) in 24 minutes after the first half. On the plus side, the former All-Star collected a season-high three steals and scored more than the 11.3 points he averaged over his previous three games. Boston's next match is Tuesday against the Nets, who the 29-year-old has yet to face despite two earlier meetings this season.
Hayward had 10 points (5-15 FG, 0-5 3Pt), nine assists and eight rebounds in 40 minutes during Sunday's 114-112 loss to the Lakers.
Hayward struggled from the floor but came close to logging a triple-double while earning a team high minute total. Hayward continues to perform at a very high level here in 2019-20, as he's maintaining a career high rebounding average while providing efficient and well-rounded numbers offensively, including career-best percentages from the field and at the free-throw line. If he's not quite at the peak of his powers, he's extremely close.
Hayward notched 29 points (12-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six assists, five rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes during Friday's 127-117 win at Minnesota.
This was Hayward's second-best scoring output of the season, only bested by his 39-point performance back on Nov. 5 against the Cavaliers. The former Jazz star has looked impressive all season long, and he has scored 20 or more points in five of his last six contests. He is averaging 21.7 points per game while shooting 53.2 percent from the field over that span, and he could be in line for another solid offensive performance, especially if Kemba Walker (knee) is ruled out from Sunday's game against the Lakers.
Hayward scored 21 points (6-21 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 47 minutes in Thursday's 141-133 double overtime win versus the Clippers.
With Jaylen Brown (calf) ruled out, Hayward recorded his seventh double-double of the season. He shot a team-worst 28.6 percent from the field, but this was the forward's eighth performance of 20 points or more in his last 10 games. Following the All-Star break, Hayward will be in a friendly matchup versus the Wolves, who just traded away their best wing defender in Robert Covington.
Hayward scored 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four assists and a block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 112-111 win over the Thunder.
The double-double was his sixth of the season. Hayward has been a more consistent contributor over the last few weeks, averaging 19.4 points, 7.8 boards, 4.2 assists and 1.9 threes over his last 11 games, and he might finally be ready to give the Celtics the kind of numbers he became known for earlier in his career with the Jazz.
Hayward (foot) will be available to play Sunday against the Thunder.
Look for the 29-year-old to step back into the starting five without any strict minutes limitation, as he only missed one game on account of the sore left foot. Before sitting out Friday's 112-107 win over the Hawks, Hayward was in the midst of a nice offensive groove. He's scored at least 20 points in six of his last seven appearances, shooting 51.9 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from three-point range over that stretch.
Hayward (foot) is considered likely to play in Sunday's matchup with the Thunder, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Hayward was unable to play in Friday's 112-107 victory over the Hawks, but it looks like he is trending towards a quick return. Barring any setbacks, he looks on track to suit up Sunday. Grant Williams would likely be in line for another spot start if he were to suffer any type of setback.
Hayward (foot) was ruled out for Friday's game against the Hawks, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
The 29-year-old was considered questionable with left foot soreness after posting 23 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 35 minutes Wednesday versus the Magic, and he won't be available for Friday's contest. Grant Williams could make his way into the starting five in Hayward's absence.
Hayward is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta due to a sore left foot.
It's worth noting that Hayward missed three games back in December due to a similar issue, though it's unclear if the severity of his current injury is comparable. Look for his status to clear up closer to Friday's tip-off. If Hayward is unable to play, Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye could both benefit from increased run.
Hayward produced 23 points (10-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, seven rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 116-100 win over the Magic.
With Kemba Walker (knee) and Marcus Smart (quad) both absent for the second straight game, Hayward received the start at point guard and was pivotal to Boston's success. The veteran has now scored at least 20 points and recorded six rebounds in six of his last seven starts. If both of these guards remain out for Friday's matchup versus the Hawks, Hayward will continue to be a must-start in both daily and season-long formats.
Hayward (calf) has been cleared to play Wednesday against Orlando.
Hayward was battling a minor calf issue earlier in the week, but his status was never in much doubt. With Marcus Smart (thigh) and Kemba Walker (knee) both out Wednesday, Hayward could be in line for a slight bump in offensive responsibility.
