Gordon Hayward’s wife shared another update on his injury recovery

Robyn Hayward caused a bit of a stir with her Instagram story Wednesday afternoon.

Hayward posted a video of her husband, Gordon, playing video games with their older daughter, Bernie, on his lap. While Gordon’s gaming habits are nothing new, his completely bare left foot is a surprising development to many Celtics fans.

The forward has been sidelined since the team’s season opener, when he fractured his left ankle against the Cavaliers. Boston hasn’t set a timeline for his recovery or return, but president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said at the end of November that Hayward’s next steps included getting him off crutches and into a new walking boot before then moving into a brace.


Prior to the Celtics’ game against the Mavericks, head coach Brad Stevens said that he “didn’t see the picture” from Hayward’s wife.

“He wears the boot until a certain time every evening and then he can take it off,” Stevens told reporters. “When he moves around, he can move around with a brace that’s like a boot.

“He is progressing and doing what he can do — what he’s been cleared to do,” he continued. “It’s been going well. He still wears a boot when he comes over to the gym. He’s wearing the boot for most of the day.”
