Gordon Hayward made his return to the NBA on Friday night, as the star forward played in the Boston Celtics' preseason game against the Charlotte Hornets. It was the All-Star forward's first action in an NBA game since his awful injury in the season-opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers last October.

Those close to Hawyward are understandably anxious about his return to the NBA. The former Butler star has obviously been through a lot, both physically and mentally.

An Instagram post from Hayward's wife, Robyn, has gone viral.

Robyn posted the following warning for the rest of the NBA on Instagram:

That's fair.

Robyn posted the following more-heartfelt message, too:

"It’s felt like forever since I’ve seen this honey play! I may cry when I watch you (this could be hormones lol). I know no one will know how hard he has worked completely and the struggle it’s been, but since he’s stuck with me. I have seen it and it makes me love him so much more and admire him so much! It is not easy to go through something like he did for the world to see... he is one tough cookie because i for sure wouldn’t be able to come back and be a professional athlete. So cheers to you babe because you’re such an inspiration to us all! Our girls are so excited for tonight it’s so freaking cute! We love you!!" she wrote.
