Celtics React To Gordon Hayward’s Nasty Season Opener Ankle Fracture



Boston Celtics player Gordon Hayward hit the hard wood in Cleveland on Tuesday night for the team’s season opener. Unfortunately, the night took a turn for the worst when Hayward suffered a nasty injury that will leave him out for quite some time.

Less than six minutes into the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Gordon was going up for an alley-oop when he landed wrong. When his feet hit the floor, his left ankle just snapped.

Coach Brad Stevens later confirmed that Hayward suffered a fractured tibia and a dislocated ankle.

According to reports, LeBron James went to check on his opponent during the game.

Kyrie Irving also told reporters post game that “It’s tough. I’ve seen a few injuries in my career and I’ve had a few,” Irving said. “Probably two of the worst ones I’ve been in the game watching — one was [George] at USA and this one tonight. It’s not a great sight to see, but you gotta pick yourself up. Just keep on fighting, man.”

He added, “We understand that [Hayward], God willing, will be fine, and we’re going to continue to pray for him and be there for him as best we can.”

Isaiah Thomas, who helped recruit Gordon to the Celtics, tweeted: “Woke up this morning praying hard for my guy … Minor setback for a MAJOR comeback my brotha, all love from me!”


The athlete, who signed a four-year, $128 million deal, has yet to comment.
