Gordon Hayward: Underwent minor ankle surgery

Assuming Brad Stevens goes with the same lineup as he did on Opening Night of this past season, the C's will start Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, and Al Horford.

Despite failing to dethrone LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers as Eastern Conference champions, the future still looks bright for the Boston Celtics.

In his first season in Boston, the 26-year-old averaged 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 60 games.

"The farther you go in the playoffs, the more hard it is to lose", Ainge said.

Ainge told that reporters Irving underwent a procedure to fix a deviated septum.

If Hayward and Irving are indeed able to return healthy for the beginning of the season, expectations will by sky high in Boston. If I were a betting man (I am) my money would be on year nine to be the breakthrough.

"They're already planning for me to be here", he said at the team's practice facility after exit interviews. Seeing players like Jayson Tatum rise up becoming successful. wouldn't you agree he did pretty well in his first season as an National Basketball Association player and a Celtic I'd say so? But that performance didn't stop him from telling ESPN's Jackie MacMullan that he was worth more than $14 million annually in restricted free agency this summer. But that being said, I want to be in Boston.

"We're not going to do something unless it makes us better".

Hayward and Irving will be in the unique position of learning how to fit in with these young players next fall, and it will be fascinating to watch the Celtics develop chemistry before another playoff run. The injury occurred in November when he was hit in the face by teammate Aron Baynes.

Irving had suffered a fracture in November which required him to wear a mask. In his absence, plenty of Celtics stepped up.

"I don't like to make excuses", said Smart, who underwent surgery in March for a torn ligament in his right thumb and returned after just six weeks, "but my thumb is killing me".
