Gordon Hayward Fractured His Remaining Hand Against The Spurs

Gordon Hayward Fractured His Remaining Hand Against The Spurs

Just when Boston Celtics All-Star forward Gordon Hayward started to hit his stride, he's now been dealt another devastating blow.

Gordon Hayward has been on a tear lately but the Boston Celtics had a scare when Hayward, showing discomfort with his left arm, headed off to the locker room after a collision with San Antonio Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge.

Hayward was sent for an X-ray that confirmed the diagnosis.

Boston stretched the edge to 72-54 at half-time, Brown scoring 20 points in the first half.


Hayward, who scored nine points in 15 minutes Saturday, is averaging 18.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in eight games this season for the Celtics, while shooting 55.5% overall and 43.3% from 3-point range.

Kanter originally suffered the injury when the Sixers' Josh Richardson smashed right into Kanter's left leg/knee in the aftermath of a collision with Marcus Smart in the second quarter of that October 23 meeting. We'll have to hold out to see on the severity of the harm, probably pursuing an MRI, to master of a timetable for his achievable return.

DeMar DeRozan had 22 points for the Spurs (5-4), who trailed by as many as 22 points.

Hayward winced in pain after banging his left hand against Aldridge's chest attempting to get past the Spurs forward on a screen late in the first half.
