Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward is continuing to make progress in his recovery from a pair of ankle surgeries that cost him all but a few minutes of last season.Hayward posted a video of him working out on Instagram that shows the Boston Celtics star dribbling, making step-back jumpers, fadeaways and pull-up jumpers from outside.”Working with @drewhanlen and the @puresweat guys to get back! Slowly but surely making progress day by day, week by week!” the caption reads.Earlier in July, Boston president of operations Danny Ainge said Hayward had recently resumed running.Ainge said the latest procedure was to remove a plate and screws from Hayward’s left ankle. Hayward broke the ankle on Oct. 17 prior to undergoing the first surgery.”Before he left, he was running out on the basketball court,” Ainge told the Boston Globe. “He was back to resuming basketball activities. It feels great.”
