Gordon Hayward sounds like he is ready to make his return when the Boston Celtics open the 2018-19 season.

Per The Athletic’s Jay King, Hayward noted he is “basically 100 percent” healthy but is still working his way back into basketball shape. 

“It’s so much fun to be able to play again,” Hayward told King. He also mentioned he’s been playing in five-on-five games for the past couple of weeks. 

Per Chris Grenham of SB Nation, Hayward said his expectation is to be in the lineup when the Celtics host the Philadelphia 76ers in the regular-season opener on Oct. 16.
