Gordon Hayward, a key part of the Celtics’ 2017-18 campaign, suffered a fractured left ankle on opening night in Cleveland.
The 6-8 swingman, who signed with Boston as a free agent during the summer, came down awkwardly after a mistimed alley-oop. The injury was immediately apparent and play was stopped so medical staff could attend to him.
