#10 Gordon Hayward
Opening night will feature many interesting and compelling storylines. But, nothing will be more heartwarming than seeing Hayward step onto the court, assuming he is indeed ready to play. One can only imagine how difficult the last year has been for the now 28-year-old after dislocating his left ankle and fracturing his fibula last opening night. Although it will probably take some time for him to shake off the rust and jell with his teammates, Hayward’s return should be a big boost for the Celtics this season.
