More information about Gordon Hayward's injury is starting to trickle out.

Boston Celtics star Gordon Hayward both fractured his tibia and dislocated his ankle in the first two minutes of his team's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night in one of the most gruesome scenes we've seen on a basketball floor. Details are starting to trickle out regarding how Hayward was initially treated.

According to TNT's Reggie Miller, who spoke with Kyrie Irving, Howard's ankle was actually put back into place on the floor by doctors before he was taken to the locker room. Many, after seeing the image of Hayward's ankle obviously dislocated, were wondering how quickly the team's medical staff was able to get it reset.

The Celtics are reportedly "cautiously optimistic" about Hayward's injury. We'll keep you updated.
