This Tuesday there was the NBA season opener game between the Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers. Just in this past July Gordon Hayward signed with the Celtics for a four year 128 million dollar contract. Gordon was now the star forward. Sad to say, the injury bug was waiting that night. Once Gordon went up for an alley-oop within the first six minutes of the game he came down hard. Two Cav players were competing with him, one of the players was LeBron James, and he came down wrong on his ankle. His ankle was snapped to a terrible angle and his foot was pointed outward. The sight was terrifying. Many of the players turned and looked away from the ugly sight. His ankle was dislocated and he broke his tibia. He then had surgery on Wednesday night and his agent had said that the surgery “went really well”. Sadly, Gordon is not expected to play in the rest of the season.
