Gordon Hayward glad to be back with Celtics after injury

Gordon Hayward glad to be back with Celtics after injury

So just devastated, I guess, that I wouldn't be able to contribute, that I wouldn't be able to have the season I wanted to have.

His injury made people around the world cringe. "It'll probably take a little bit of time, but for sure hoping". Went out to eat with him this morning. "But there's no reason to continue to sulk and have self-pity", he said. As good as a basketball coach as he is, he's a good human being and a great person. The Celtics' coach was with Hayward throughout the entire process, and even helped carry him on the team airplane a few hours after the injury took place. "It's something that I'm going to have to deal with so might as well deal with it now". The first person who talked to me back there was Isaiah Thomas. Hayward chronicled the first thoughts that entered his head when he hit the floor, writing he felt a "sense of panic" come over him. The doctors were unbelievable, all the doctors at New England Baptist and Dr. All of them were wishing me well and praying for me, I think. So it was not just telling me but kind of showing me the reasoning behind it. Five minutes into the season opener against the Cavaliers, Hayward landed strangely going up for a lob and went down with one of the more gruesome injuries you can imagine - his foot at a 90-degree angle, unmistakably broken. "I'll take that, I guess".

"Daily, I still have negative thoughts", Hayward said. But I definitely wanted it to go differently for my first game as a Celtic. I think it shows the brotherhood that professional athletes have, just athletes in general.

"And this is where it makes me emotional because... like, I wouldn't want Bernie or Charlie to go through that so. But it's something I'll have to deal with, so I might as well deal with it now". "He wants to include me still and wants to make sure that I'm still part of this team and I'm still helping the team, so he's going to have different things for me to do and different ways that I can help". I rolled over and saw my foot, and it was pointed in completely the wrong direction.

Hayward has been keeping up with the team, and has already begun to help his younger teammates since they will now bear a heavier load due to his absence.

A law enforcement official identified the driver as 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. Earlier in the day, Trump vowed to keep ISIS out of America.

"I think it's extremely helpful".

"I feel better today than I did yesterday. So just to be out on the court and do whatever I can with the basketball, it's what I love to do, so that's fun and I'm looking forward to continuing doing that". That was an incredible feeling, just to kind of start that process.

Hayward said he has seen the video of his injury, noting that the clip was hard to avoid given the proliferation of social media.

"I'm putting zero expectations on myself, as far as a timetable", he said. I have a scooter at home that's another toy for them to play with and another thing that they can get hurt on, more than anything.
