Gordon Hayward Suffers Nasty Injury In Season Opener

Gordon Hayward lays on the court after injury.

An NBA star suffered a freak injury in the season's first game.

The 2017 NBA season kicked off tonight, and it did so with a somber tone.

One of the biggest offseason additions, Gordon Hayward suffered a vicious injury just over five minutes into the first game.

Hayward fell awkwardly and it's clear from the reactions of the players and fans that something is horribly wrong, possibly a broken leg.

Warning, the video is graphic.

Hayward was an NBA All-Star for the first time last season, and he was supposed to play an integral role in the success of the Boston Celtics this season after seven seasons with the Utah Jazz.
