Gordon Hayward posted a personal blog Monday that indicated he's slowly progressing with his rehab activity on an anti-gravity AlterG treadmill, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports. "I started at like 30 percent of my body weight, doing a single-leg calf raise. And now we're slowly up to like 70 percent, 75 percent. And so, I'm almost there, being able to do a single-leg calf raise," Hayward wrote. "Once I am able to do that, then I can do the elliptical. And once I'm cleared doing the elliptical for a certain time and distance, then I'm able to start running."
