(CLEVELAND) — The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics’ season opener was highly-anticipated all summer after the wild off-season both teams had.
But within the first quarter of Tuesday night’s game at Quicken Loans Arena, the Celtics’ Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome injury after awkwardly landing on his leg.
Cavs and Celtics fans in the crowd were seen grimacing and Hayward was eventually carted off the court on a stretcher.
It is not yet clear how long Hayward will be out.
