• Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Gordon Hayward (fractured left hand) will meet with doctors on Monday to determine if surgery will be necessary.

    Stevens also mentioned that the surgery route could end up being the quickest timeline for Hayward to return, but that they won't know anything definitive until Monday. The injury is a devestating momentum crusher for Hayward, who had been playing at a top-25 level to that point. Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart figure to be the biggest beneficiaries in his absence, while rookies Grant Williams and Javonte Green could also see some extended run.
