Season's gonna be long, too long to watch.

Now that a championship is unlikely 40-1 odds I recommend that you sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy your team's ups and downs without worrying about the score. You'll enjoy the games better. For example, we played like crap last night and I had a blast watching Jaylen Brown's drives, etc.

Stevens treats Gordon like a son, he's going to tread lightly with this injury and treat him with the utmost caution. We won't see him back this year unless we beat all odds and have a deep playoff run. Then we might see him come off the bench in moderation.

Reality is, this season is a lost cause, Stevens and management won't rush him back. Gordon won't be on the court until next year.

Update - colleague just mentioned that Haywards agent said he is not coming back this year. Probably to set a realistic expectation to the fans.

You need to stop listening to your colleague and then update the update.

He was right based on the woj bomb.. so why the animosity?

No, he wasn't. The word the agent used was "unlikely". Your friend used the word "not". One has a chance of happening, albeit slim, the other has none. There is a difference.
exactly. Jeremy lin was straight up announced he's not coming back, whereas Gordon is given the "unlikely" so far with recovery timetables not really announced yet. Gordon just has a broken tibia bone. Its Serious but the recovery isn't as long as other type of injuries

I read some doctor opinions saying they wouldn't be surprised to see him back sooner than most think

I believe Gordon will be back by end of March. Right now, he need peace and no distractions. We'll be fine. When Morris returns we will be very dangerous. With Cavs coasting...when Kyrie shifts to new gear i believe we could even be first seed...and bring back Gordon...use last 10 games of regular season to prepare him for playoff...probably wouldn't need him playing big minutes in first round...and hoping he will be at 90% for ECSF with Wizards or Raptors

I guess this is a key difference between the two main groups of Cs fans: some can enjoy the games even when the overall circumstances may be bad, and some can't. I'm among the latter, and I think that's what's giving me trouble in relation to the Hayward injury: I'm not a fan because I like seeing young guys develop, regardless of how the team does; I'm competitive, I want my teams to win, and this team is now in line for a good bit less winning this season. We were primed to start being a real pain in Cleveland's backside, but now we'll likely be little more than a mildly annoying speedbump on their way to another Finals appearance.

Just take your TIME and get WELL, Haymaker.

I remember vividly the KG threads on here when he injured his knee on that fateful trip to Utah in the 2008-09 season.

I'm certain that we had CHI (and ORL) on edge with the numerous rumors/guesses/conspiracies) about KG's rumored return.

I have no doubt that even the THOUGHT of KG coming back that season probably gave us a win or two in those playoffs.

I just want to see Gordon sit on the sidelines in his cool suits and do THIS



lol I don't think Gordon is wired like KG but it will be awesome to see Hayward get well and get back to us.

Just take your time young fella. Championships are a JOURNEY not a sprint.

Yup itís tough just the thought of what could have been. They looked amazing in the preseason together with GH. I felt like before he went down we were gonna win the Cavs game you just felt a run coming. Now itís just going to be ugly, lots of close gritty games, mistakes by all the youngins and weíre gonna lose in heartbreak fashion. 6-8 seed most likely. All the excitement of the Kyrie trade is down the drain. Heís gonna be doubled and tripled. Al is gonna be forced to do more than heís capable of. Same for the young guys. Gonna be real bad.

yeah. This is fair.

I am excited to watch the kids grow. Tatum and Brown will be relied on for major contributions which is exciting, but this really knocks us 2 years backwards. Not a real threat to Cleveland and just gunning to win a playoff series or 2.

What Iím scared of is what if Gordons never the same? What if he comes back next year and chemistry and things donít go as planned with him and Kyrie, and Kyrie walks? Theyíll only have one year together now before Kyries contracts up. This was a huge blow all around.

Gordon Hayward is a star? Like one of those dim ones that is really hard to see? How many stars are there in the NBA? 30+?

Joking. Kinda. I think he's a good/not great player. Prob. top 25, in my eyes. ESPN put him at 20. On their list, I would take the following lower ranked players over him: Porzingis, Griffin, Kyrie, Millsap, Marc Gasol, IT, Whiteside. I know this is very debatable, so I'll give you top 20.

I know it is easier to get an All Star appearance here or there, but I wouldn't call Hayward a star. I'll leave that designation for All NBA players (top 15), and superstars are top 5 in the league, in my book.

I think that Gordon is good at mostly everything, but not great at anything. According to my eyes, I think Kyrie is our only star, and Tatum/Brown have a chance to become future stars.
