NFT: Heyward breaks his leg in Celtics vs Cavs game

Canton : 10/17/2017 8:19 pm
One of the ugliest I've ever seen in sports ever.
The players reactions says it all  
Canton : 10/17/2017 8:20 pm : link
Just horrific
Sad.  
old man : 10/17/2017 8:22 pm : link
Celtics hopes dashed for '17-'18.
And that's Gordon Hayward  
Canton : 10/17/2017 8:23 pm : link
Not Heyward*
Unreal

did it happen 30 seconds into the game?
Did the same thing  
hitdog42 : 10/17/2017 8:29 pm : link
My junior year in high school in basketball- that just made me want to vomit- fingers crossed they can set the tib cleanly. That was horrific
I remember seeing Paul George's injury live on TV  
Giantology : 10/17/2017 8:30 pm : link
Hayward didn't break the skin but it still maybe have been worse. Just one of the nastiest most awful injuries I've ever seen in any sport. Hard to keep watching the game. Just awful.
As a Yankees fan,  
Pego61 : 10/17/2017 8:31 pm : link
who's team just took the lead, and a Celtics fan, who's second best player just broke his ankle/leg, I have incredibly mixed emotions right now.

I'm just sitting here in stunned silence.

I'd like to think this is an injury you can recover from. And I think it is, cause I've seen guys come back from it before. Looks worse than it is. But this fucking sucks for him.

It wax so grotesque they wouldn't show a replay and had the camera off him, only showing player and fan reaction.

It was the lower left leg. The lower leg did a complete 180 degree turn and snapped. as it laid on the court in the opposite direction, it normally should.

Same situation here as a Yankees/Celtics fan. I'd be uber depressed if the Yankees didn't come back tonight. You just have to hope there's no muscular damage that needs surgery. If it's just a break, you would think he should be okay long term.

Celts yanks gmen fan?


Yep, we do exist. Father was from Brooklyn and a fan of those teams, so I never had a choice. Celtics weren't good for most of my youth actually. I lived through the ML Carr/Pitino years and didn't get to see the Bird years.
Man that's awful.  
bceagle05 : 10/17/2017 8:40 pm : link
What a devastating blow.
Got lucky  
hitdog42 : 10/17/2017 8:41 pm : link
Tib snapped clean and the Yankees orthopedic was on call and reset it-
Cast to my hip for 8 weeks- then to my knee for 6- then walking boot/ rehab- happened in February and played sports in the fall.

I was never the same player- some of that was mental, some physical- but it wasn’t a total - you can make almost a full recovery
I have no interest in seeing this, but look at the picture

Funny. You prolly thought he was awesome when he was being a scum bag for the Celts.
Maybe I need to move up my Tatum timeline.

He's whipping the Cavs' asses in the 2nd half.

No such thing as a fibia. Fibula and tibia are the major bones in the lower leg.

Also Dr, the tibia is considered part of the ankle.

Crowder has never done anything close to this before ... so stop with the madness....He was pissed Hayward replaced him and the fans cheered him as a Jazz against the Celtics at a home game ... pure jealousy was his motivation ... as for my disappointment of him this is not the 1st time but the straw that broke the camels back ... his girlish and "Trump-ish" (that is redundant) twitter antics always rubbed me the wrong way.

Intentionally trying to alter a person's career is horseshit plain and simple

Agreed. The East is such trash that I still think they end up somewhere between 47 and 53 wins, but that Hayward will be missed big time come April & beyond.

Without?

Any chance he comes back this season?
Chances he is 100% again?
Celts will still be a top 5 east team  
ryanmkeane : 10/18/2017 11:28 am : link
without Hayward. I'd say they'd win 55 games or so with him, and probably end up somewhere in the 48-50 range without him.
I can understand the frustration of C's fans,

If the reports are true that it was a clean break and there is no ligament damage then probably. I googled it and average time to heal can really vary from 3 to 6+ months.
How is it even possibly
