Gordon Hayward just suffered one of the worst injuries in basketball, right up there with Kevin Ware and Paul George. The video below shows the damage, but be warned, bones and Celtic dreams may be broken in this video by @FanSportsClips:

As you can see, Gordon Hayward’s season is probably over, which is of course a huge blow to the Celtics’ Finals chances, even with Kyrie Irving joining the squad this summer. Irving had said that he wanted to go to a place where he can be the #1 guy, but now he has to play #1 and #2 after this horrific injury. Kyrie went over to wish Hayward well as he was taken off a few minutes ago on a stretcher (Photo courtesy of CBS Sports).

More details will come in the following hours, but we want to hear your thoughts: Is it time to pencil LeBron and the Cavs in the Finals right now? Will Hayward be back this season? Can Kyrie and the rest of the Celtics stay afloat until he does? No matter what, all of us here at PSE wish Gordon Hayward a speedy recovery.
