Celtics SF Gordon Hayward Suffers Horrific Leg Injury, Taken Off on Stretcher

Just six minutes into the NBA season, fans witnessed what could be the most gruesome injury all year. Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome left ankle injury during Tuesday's game and immediately had his leg put in an air cast then was taken off on a stretcher.

While details on the specific injury aren't yet known, it seems a certainty Hayward will not return to the court this season. Hayward's ankle bent back 90 degrees and the medical staff immediately rushed over towards him and a cast came out quickly after. It is one of the most gruesome injuries basketball has seen in years and left players and fans from both teams shaken. 

When more information becomes available, we'll update you. On behalf of eDraft Sports, we wish Hayward a speedy recovery.
