Celtics' Gordon Hayward expected to make 'full recovery' after gruesome injury

Celtics' Gordon Hayward expected to make 'full recovery' after gruesome injury”

However, Hayward's agent told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that his client will evaluate a course of action to undertake following his MRI and CT scans this morning.

The Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward suffered a severe injury in the National Basketball Association season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers and his agent said that the All Star player is likely to miss the season on Thursday.

Hayward's dad tweeted before the surgery, saying: In surgery now. It hurts me that I can't be there for the home opener. "But I'll be supporting you guys from here, and wishing you the best of luck".

While Celtics fans might have been hoping that Hayward could play again this season, Hayward will prepare for the long rehabilitation process while his teammates prepare to play the rest of the season without him. But finding a useful piece to sign or trade for in that price range is going to be borderline impossible for the Celtics, who would not want to give up anything of real substance in a trade.

Boston fell to 0-2 when Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 16 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter, adding 13 rebounds to help the Milwaukee Bucks to a 108-100 victory. While officially being diagnosed with a fractured left tibia, it was previously announced by the Celtics that Hayward would ultimately be forced to go under the knife in order to fix the damage.

The good news for Hayward is that George was able to make a full recovery and become the elite player he was prior to his gruesome injury.

"He put a lot of effort into starting his career well in Boston", Stevens said of Hayward.

"I'm hopeful that we can find the right combinations", he said. "But we're not even thinking about a timeframe right now".

With Hayward now slated to miss the final 81 games of the 2017-18 regular season, the Celtics will be forced to trudge forward without the team's key free agent acquisition from this past offseason.
