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

Yes

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.
Yup, just hoping he can come back next season. Hopefully the optimism they are leaking right now is warranted.

Im predicting 6 months.. I had exactly the same injury. He will lose explosiveness though...

The "optimism" leaking out IS warranted; Hayward's fracture was clean (confirmed by Mike Gorman, who likely has connections with the Celtics medical staff). The worst case scenarios you guys are worried about "out for the season" are for fractures that have ligament or blood vessel damage from what I have heard.

Wilson says Hayward is having surgery tomorrow

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
I think everyone is trying to be optimistic at this point. But after KG's 08-09 season I just want him to get right for next year.

I find it hard to believe that a severely dislocated joint has caused no damage to the surrounding ligaments/blood vessels. We'll wait and see I guess.

He never really had one-foot explosiveness anyway. Most of his dunks were 2-footed.
Gordon's a great player because he always makes the right plays/decisions is a very good shooter.
He'll be fine with a little less verticality. He has enough size and lateral speed to play defense against NBA wings.

Its the best case scenario for sure, and probably unlikely if you look at how these sort of catastrophic injuries usually play out. But hopefully its true.

Even then rehab and installing plates/screws is still a long process with a lot of steps where you can have setbacks. I just hope he's back next year and he's right.

False.  This definitely wasn't confirmed.  I believe him that he heard it from team sources.  But as of last night Gordon did not have an MRI.  He may have it in Boston today, but sometimes they actually wait a few days for the swelling to go down before they do the MRI.  If that's the case, we won't know definitively until next week.

Not a chance. Felt his career was in doubt.

Forget Wilson, what does House think?

Not House, he has that really bad limp.

from what i've read that would be correct, they would have to wait for the swelling to go down before operating on him

I still expect him to be shut down for the entire season even in the best case scenario of 4-6 months even if he's ready to go around late April (that puts us around playoff time) but he won't be 100%

Yeah this is the best-case scenario given how horrible that looked. I couldn't look at the replays for quite awhile but in real-time I thought he had a Paul George-style open compound fracture and possibly tore the knee too.

It's not inconceivable he comes back this year but I wouldn't count on it at all.
