The buzz about Gordon Hayward's recovery has increased in recent weeks and that trend is sure to continue after some promising news from Brad Stevens regarding Hayward's recovery.

In a taped appearance on Mike Krzyzewski's SiriusXM radio show that is set to air on Thursday, Stevens told the Duke head coach that the All-Star forward could be done with the boot on Wednesday following a doctor's visit.

"He's going to the doctor to potentially get out of his walking boot for good, which he's jacked about," Stevens said. "He is wearing an ASO brace most of the day now. He is literally in the weight room as we speak. Does all the training table just like our guys. Has his own shooting time. Even when he was in a boot sitting in a chair, he had his own shooting time and had his own lifting time just like all of our players do before practice. So we've tried to keep him as engaged as possible."
