Gordon Hayward no longer planning to leave bubble for birth of child


Gordon Hayward's return after missing the last month due to a sprained ankle was good news for the Celtics in and of itself.

Then during Saturday night's Game 3 broadcast, ESPN's Rachel Nichols broke some more news that bodes well for Boston.

Nichols reported that Hayward told her he is no longer planning to leave the bubble for the birth of his fourth child.

Hayward had said before the playoffs that he would leave the bubble for the birth, but told Nichols that since he just had a bunch of unexpected time with his family while he was out injured, he now intended to stay with the Celtics for as long as they are playing.
