Sports world sends prayers and thoughts to Celtics Gordon Hayward after suffering fractured ankle

The NBA season was just 6 minutes old. It was a rematch of the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals.

LeBron and the Cavs against Kyrie and the Celtics.

But as quickly as the excitement for the season started, it was gone after a horrific injury to new Celtics forward Gordon Hayward.

Due to the gruesome way that his ankle was fractured, we are choosing not to show the injury, but immediately after Hayward went down, the sports world and many around the NBA sent their prayers and best wishes to Gordon.

Please join us in praying for Gordon Hayward.
