Injured Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward may not be trying to stoke the fire by sharing encouraging videos of his rehab but they, nonetheless, force reporters to continue to search for answers. On Saturday, Celtics coach Brad Stevens offered his most definitive declaration yet that Hayward wouldn't see action this season. "He's not playing this year," Stevens said. "I don't know what else to say. Is he progressing? Yes. ... It's great, and I think that the videos are great too because it continues to show the progress because sometimes when you're in the midst of that long rehab you don't feel the progress of the day-to-day the way now we all might see a video or somebody that hasn't seen him may see a video, and say 'man he is really getting better.' But he's super long way away from even being in on a 1-on-0 workout where he's cutting."
