Celtics’ Gordon Hayward Suffers Grotesque Leg Injury In NBA Opener

Today was supposed to a celebration of the return of the NBA but instead we were treated with a scary scene. In the first quarter of today’s Celtics-Cavs game, Celtics superstar forward Gordon Hayward appeared to instantly break his leg when he landed awkwardly trying to go up for an alley-oop.

You can watch the video HERE but be forewarned it’s pretty gruesome.

The stunned Cavs crowd went on to give Hayward a standing ovation as he was stretchered into the locker room.

This a huge blow to the Celtics and hopefully Hayward can recover from this devastating injury.
