This is absolutely terrible

I hope he can come back from this 100%, no one deserves to have an injury like this.

just joining in the game and thread, was walking the cute dog.

geez, that was quick. season basically over almost as soon as it starts.

sigh, well, let's see just how good the kids are this season. something to watch.

I'm so incredibly grateful for this place. My friends think I'm overreacting and that this doesn't affect me. But man, I was so excited for this year. This was absolutely brutal. Let's hope this team rallies around Hawyward!

TP, I couldn't agree more.  We invested so much time dreaming of how this team will play, develop, and improve.  I imagine most of us planned out what we'd eat and drink for the game tonight, the game thread, and all 2017-2018 celticsblog threads.  And then this.  My overwhelming feeling has been that I feel absolutely awful for Hawyard... he worked so hard to get to this point, and to be re-united with his mentor to go to the next level.

This injury, given that it was by the ankle and appeared broken, is probably worse than the Paul George injury.  I'm not claiming to be a doctor, but I saw my friend compound fracture is leg in nearly the same spot, and he can't even jog years later.  It's honestly possible that Hayward's career is done.  What then?  What then when we have his salary cap hit for the next 4-years?  This is franchise changing, and in the worst way possible.  I am so depressed from it. :'(

Good news is Boston has some of the best doctors in the world.

I'm sure he will be operated on by one of the worlds best.

So does Cleveland with Cleveland Clinic, i'm sure he's in the best hands

Actually makes me sick to my stomach thinking he’s getting this surgery as we speak in Cleveland and not in one of Boston’s world renowned hospitals.
Hopefully Cleveland’s surgeons stack up

Cleveland Clinic is right up there with any hospital in the country. You can be confident that the surgeons stack up.

via Google search on ankle fracture (general)

Your provider may do x-rays 7 to 10 days and 1 month after your injury to see how your ankle is healing. Your provider will let you know when you can return to regular activities and sports. Most people need at least 6 to 10 weeks to fully heal.

Man this really stinks...Get well SOON Mr. Hayward.

Was super high on the potential of this team--with all the talent...Maybe some good will come out of this--TONS of playing time for Tatum--Kid looks lost out there so far anyway.

There are no words.  Our status as Conference contenders lasted 6 minutes.



Not even.

Yep. Now we will be fighting between 2-5. We will be lottery bound if Kyrie goes down before ASG.

If I'm being a pessimist, I ask myself if this team is that much better than the one Kyrie was leading into the lottery.

I agree. I never thought of Hayward as being the deciding factor between contention and lottery.

Me and my firend that are very into the team both have been so down since it happened.  I think we're all here because we take the team really seriously and it's a sad moment.

The hard part is if the bone is affected and changed it's place it needs to be put back to Original place in order for all the parts(other bones, ligaments) to function smoothly

The problem is unless you know Gordon's original bone alignment(every body is different and his right is also different to his left) before injury(which is almost impossible), it's very very hard to do it
Even a slight difference of place or degree of the bone can affect his joiint(assume we are talking about high end performance, normal life will be fine)

Why hasn't Hayward been transfered to the hospital?   If it was serious or immediate surgery required, he should be transported

It's likely not a emergency surgery so he may be consulting to choose which hospital or doctor
he want to have, for he need to prepare his body for the surgery anyway

Sherrod is an idiot. This isn't an injury where somebody returns in 4-6 weeks. It's not a hairline fracture, it's a displacement.

an Ankle fracture is far worse than a normal leg fracture and if the surgery didn’t go well he may very likely end his career
It's better than a broken knee in nature but it's more complicated, thus the skill level of the doctor will be the center key, of course high-end rehab will also be needed for him to be him again

Is it certain an ankle fracture always requires surgery?
Of course not always, if you are lucky enough that is...

I mean, anybody who can talk into a camera has to be at least as good, right?
