Hayward is still being examined and, as his agent mentioned last night, he will evaluate all of his options before opting in for surgery. Brad Stevens said Hayward dislocated his ankle and fractured his tibia but the team later announced the injury as a fractured left ankle. Marcus Smart started the second half for Hayward and should see over 30 minutes per game moving forward. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum will also see an immediate uptick in minutes and they should be added, if available.
