Gordon Hayward has been upgraded once again.
The Celtics forward has been dealing with a Grade III ankle sprain suffered in Boston’s first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Boston upgraded Hayward from doubtful to questionable Friday night.
Hayward’s return certainly will be welcomed, especially after the way the Celtics lost Game 2 and the resulting reported locker-room blowout.
Game 3 is set to tip-off Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET.
