Boston Celtics Gordon Hayward Suffers Apparent Leg Break Vs Cavaliers

Boston Celtics star Gordon Hayward was forced to leave Tuesday’s season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena with a severe leg injury.

According to the Washington Post‘s Tim Bontemps, Hayward’s “foot looked to be at a 90 degree angle from his leg.”

MassLive.com’s Jay King noted a stretcher was brought out to take Hayward off the floor.

Losing Hayward for an extended stretch would be a disappointing hit after the team signed him to a four-year deal this offseason worth $128 million.

The 27-year-old joined the Celtics after the best year of his career with the Utah Jazz, reaching his first All-Star game while reaching personal bests with 21.9 points and 5.4 assists per game. He also showcased impressive efficiency with a 53.6 effective shooting percentage.
