A major reason for that optimism, according to Bartelstein, was that tests revealed a so-called clean break, with a minimum of other damage to Hayward's leg. There is no timetable for his return.
Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward is unlikely to return this season following surgery to fix severe left leg injuries, his agent told ESPN and the Boston Herald in reports Thursday. The surgery was performed by Drs.
"We expect him to make a full recovery and return to his All-Star form", Bartelstein told Wojnarowski.
Gordon Hayward's message was played to fans at the Garden before the home opener, October 18, 2017.
"I think so", he said. "I'll be supporting you guys from here".
The Oklahoma City Thunder star suffered a gruesome leg injury of his own during a Team USA scrimmage back in 2014, missing six months before finally returning at the tail end of the 2014-15 National Basketball Association season. "I thought the Cavs organization was top notch in taking care of him of while we were there".
"It just brought me back to Vegas, and what happened to me, my incident", George said. "We haven't really gotten into it too much because we have our hands full tonight".

"It's definitely been tough", said rookie forward Jayson Tatum.
In all, the Celtics will be able to recoup approximately $11 million of the $29.7 million the team owes Hayward this season.
Celtics forward Daniel Theis wrote "GH20" on his shoe, and a fair number of Hayward's No. 20 jerseys were visible in the crowd.
Hayward - one of the most underappreciated players in the National Basketball Association over the last several years with the Utah Jazz - signed a four-year, $128 million deal with the Celtics over the offseason, and was viewed as the potential missing piece to help the Celtics get past LeBron James and the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals. In all, just four players on the roster finished last season with the team. Hayward had two points and a rebound at the time of his injury. Smart moved into the starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Bucks.
Stevens would not put a timeline on Hayward's recovery.
