Brad Stevens reiterated to the media on Saturday that Gordon Hayward will not return this season.
There has been speculation about the possibility of Hayward playing again this season as he recovers from his ankle injury suffered on opening night.
While the Celtics received an injured player exception, Hayward would be eligible to return if medically cleared.
Hayward is still weeks away from traveling with the Celtics.
