According to the agent of Boston Celtics forward Gordan Hayward, the All-Star is not expected back during the regular season. He had surgery on Wednesday after returning to Boston following the injury on Tuesday night in Cleveland, Ohio.
The All-Star underwent surgery to repair a fractured left tibia and a dislocated ankle. The big-money acquisition, who signed a four-year, $128 million deal in the summer, will need the rest of the season to recover.
“We expect him to make a full recovery and return to his All-Star form,” his agent Mark Bartelstein said.
The forward suffered the injury in the first quarter in the season-opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers. As the injury happened, the Cavaliers ran away from their seats in shock, as they tried to shield their eyes from what happened on the contested alley-oop.
During a videotaped message to Celtics crowd for their home opener on Wednesday night, he said, “I’m going to be all right.”
Without Hayward, the Celtics will now need to lean on its second big acquisition, Kyrie Irving, who they acquired in a blockbuster deal with the Cavaliers in Sept.
