Gordon Hayward to be sidelined for 4 weeks due to ankle sprain

Well this is obviously a major blow for the Celtics. The Celtics bench scored only 8 points yesterday and now their best reserve Marcus Smart will be called upon to play starter minutes (if not start). Also with Romeo Langford dealing with his injury, the Celtics depth issues hang over them. Four weeks takes you into the Eastern Conference Finals. Also Hayward is expected to miss time when his wife delivers, so keep that in mind.
