Gordon Hayward exits Nets-Celtics game with knee contusion

Boston Celtics swingman Gordon Hayward suffered a right knee contusion in the first half and did not return to Tuesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Gordon appeared to injury his knee late in the second quarter when Daniel Thies awkwardly fell into Hayward while attempting to rebound DeAndre Jordan’s missed alley-oop.

Hayward grabbed at his knee briefly but remained in the game. The Celtics then ruled him out during halftime.

The Celtics went on to blow a 21-point lead in the second half and lost 129-120 in overtime.

Hayward said his knee was sore, but he doesn’t think the injury is serious.
