Celtics Coach Brad Stevens says Gordon Hayward has a dislocated ankle & a fractured tibia. On his way back to Boston tonight.

That's... not good.  :(

Now I'm not a doctor (though I'm currently an undergrad on the health sciences track haha), but a lot of people and sources think that if this is true, Hayward is OUT for the season.

Maybe in best case scenario, he could be back April, but even that could be a stretch.

Obviously we'll find out more in the coming day or two, and there seem to be many conflicting reports and what not, but coming from Coach Stevens.. I think this may hold some value, and unfortunately, don't be surprised if we hear the dreaded news in the coming days  :'(

But for now... fingers crossed!

Could have been way worse. He could have torn ligaments and come back as a  worse version of himself. All it looks like is a broken bone. Its a big bone that takes time to heal, but he will be back as the same guy we know. 6 month recovery


I don't know much about dislocated ankles other than what I've Googled but doesnt seem to bad, 4 month recovery at most

Many are starting to think there's a decent chance he could come back by March or early April (of course assuming no ligament or tendon is found to be damaged or anything, which thankfully doesn't seem to be the case).

Did anyone think there was a chance he'd be back this season after seeing it live?

Too early to come to any conclusions on how the ligaments and tendons are. Got to wait a few days at least.

Here's an actual injury analysis from a real physician with cool diagrams and stuff:

Spoiler Alert: He could be back late this season.

So hard to watch and I pray he is able to come back to his old self when all is said and done.

If he comes back this season, it will be gravy.  Obviously the most important thing is his complete recovery and if that takes until next season, so be it.

Agree. Last thing we want to do is rush him back.

After seeing that, I'd say it'd be a minor miracle if he saw the court at all this regular season/playoffs. 

So sick to my stomach.

Wilson who?

And if he's already having surgery tomorrow then I'm guessing that's a really good sign, because that would indicate a lack of swelling, no?

Maybe that's just my green goggles interpretation.  ;D

It depends on how bad the break is and if the tendons or ligaments are also damaged on when he will back.  We probably won't hear any of that until after the surgery.
