Gordon Hayward to be sidelined for 4 weeks due to ankle sprain
#NEBHInjuryReport Celtics forward @gordonhayward suffered a Grade III sprain of his right ankle during the fourth quarter of last night’s game against Philadelphia. He is expected to miss approximately four weeks.
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.
Before coming to Boston, Gordon Hayward played
72 games 66 games (lockout) 72 games 77 games 76 games 80 games 73 games
An absolutely unreal run of terrible injury luck that nobody could have seen coming. I'm sick
