The NBA All-Star suffered a horrific leg injury.
Earlier tonight, Boston Celtics offseason acquisition Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome leg injury in the NBA’s first game of the season.
Hayward went up for a rebound and landed awkwardly. He was later carted off the court and taken into the Cavaliers locker room to receive medical attention.
The reaction from players and fans shows just how nasty the injury was.

Hayward spent the last seven seasons with the Utah Jazz before becoming one of the biggest offseason additions.
It’s a terrible start to the season for a team looking to compete with LeBron James in the East.
