Gordon Hayward Explains How Video Games Have Helped Him Rehab Broken Hand

Gordon Hayward is making some great progress in rehabbing his broken hand.

The Celtics forward underwent successful surgery and is on track to return late next month. He began shooting after Boston’s practice Sunday and all signs point to Hayward staying on his original timetable for return.

Hayward revealed how something he truly enjoys helped “serve as rehab” after his surgery. No, it wasn’t any kind of physical therapy exercise. It was video games.

As you probably know, the 29-year-old is an avid gamer, and it appears the games helped “keep his fingers moving,” according to The Athletic’s Jared Weiss.

And people say video games are bad.
