Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Will have 25-minute restriction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Brad Stevens said Monday that Hayward will have a minutes restriction hovering around 25 minutes to start the season, A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Stevens had said last week that he may restrict Hayward's minutes, but it was unclear by how much. Putting a limit of 25 minutes on Hayward is quite strict, and that will certainly limit his value early on in the regular season. With the All-Star not playing a full workload, the Celtics may have to rely on the likes of Marcus Smart and Semi Ojeleye to play more minutes off the bench in the early goings.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: May play limited minutes to start season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Brad Stevens said Friday that Hayward's minute could be limited to start the regular season, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

There doesn't appear to be any concern surrounding Hayward's health, but with the Celtics having so much frontcourt and wing depth this season, they have the luxury of not having to give him a full workload as he works his way back. Despite Boston's depth, Hayward is still expected to be a focal point of the team's offense this season, it may just be a little while before he plays the minutes necessary to display his prominence as an elite scorer again.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (back) is planning to play on opening night Tuesday against the 76ers.

Hayward was ruled out for the Celtics' final preseason game due to a sore back. He noted that it's been feeling better over the past couple days, however, and that he'll be ready for opening night.

Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Will practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (ribs) will go through portions of Tuesday's practice, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports.

Irving was a bit banged up at the end of the preseason and was most noticeably dealing with some sore ribs. However, it appears he's already nearing full strength and is set to rejoin practice, albeit in a limited fashion. Either way, Irving's ability to practice with a full week until the regular-season opener means he should have plenty of time to get ready for that contest. Expect him to slot into the top unit right away and he should be the team's top playmaker.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Takes part in practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (back) will go through portions of Tuesday's practice, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports.

Hayward sat out the Celtics' preseason finale with a sore lower back, but the absence was always considered to be precautionary. The fact that Hayward is taking the floor for Tuesday's practice -- even if he's somewhat limited -- backs that up and means he should be at full strength in time for the regular season opener in exactly a week. Look for Hayward to slot into a stacked starting five that will also feature Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford.
