So six weeks is 19 games missed.

vs DAL 11/11 (WIN 116-106)
vs WAS 11/13 (WIN 140-133) (No RWIII or Theis)
@ GSW 11/15 (WIN 105-100)
@ SAC 11/17 (LOSS 99-100)
@ PHO 11/18 (WIN 99-85)
@ LAC 11/20 (LOSS 104-107)
@ DEN 11/22 (LOSS 92-96)
vs SAC 11/25 (WIN 103-102) (No Kemba or Theis)
vs BRK 11/27 (WIN 121-110)
@ BRK 11/29 (LOSS 107-112)
@NYK 12/1 (WIN 113-104)
vs MIA 12/4 (WIN 112-93) (No Smart)
vs DEN 12/6 (WIN 108-95)
vs CLE 12/9
@ IND 12/11
vs PHI 12/12
@ DAL 12/18
vs DET 12/20
vs CHA 12/22
(6 weeks from this Monday, Dec 23)
@ TOR 12/25

Thirteen down, 6 (or fewer) to go, 9-4 without Hayward.

Officially in Hayward return watch  territory with Monday marking 4 weeks since surgery, my guess is he returns @Dallas after the weirdly long break between the 12th and 18th.

Let's hope it's fewer than 6! Would love to see him back for Philly but I agree it's probably a bridge too far. The Dallas game seems more realistic.

Ya I mainly think Dallas because of the 6 days off between games. It will likely include a couple practices which will allow the C's to see how his hand responds in a controlled environment to repeated use before throwing him back in a game. If he practices Sunday the C's wont have another practice until after the Phili game because they play Monday, travel Tuesday, play Wednesday and then again Thursday before the 6 day break. The phrasing they've used about "being back before Christmas" makes me think it wont be this coming week.

Then again who knows, maybe he's good to go and we see him vs Phili.

I agree that Dallas is most likely, but spot minutes off the bench against Philly makes sense. Get some game action then have time to recover/practice, then travel with the team and have a bigger role against Dallas.

Most important is that he's ready.
