What you need to know about Gordon Hayward's 'terrifying' injury

His leg twisted underneath him, and Hayward came down hard with his left foot pointing in the wrong direction.

Nick Kyrgios, a huge Celtics fan, was one of the first in tennis to react, along with Thanasi Kokkinakis and John Isner.

Bryant's advice was as real as it gets, encapsulating all of the sorrow, frustration, and anger that come with a freak injury of this magnitude, but noted the Boston Celtics star will need to move forward as time gives nothing back.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Hayward is set to have surgery to repair a dislocated ankle and broken tibia on Wednesday night, about 24 hours after he suffered the gruesome injury in Tuesday night's season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Bryant notably embraced Hayward after a 60-point performance career encore, as his Lakers memorably beat the Utah Jazz during the last game of the 2015-16 season. The game stopped immediately as trainers and medical personnel tended to Hayward.

Sacrifices: Kerr's comments fit well with what SB Nation writer Tim Cato said about Hayward's injury, calling it a reminder "of the sacrifices NBA players make".

The NBA are currently auctioning the jerseys worn by players from Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors on the opening night of this season. It's tough. I wish him a quick recovery.

Nick escribió " Felicitaciones a mi hermano y a mi cuñada por su compromiso, los amo muchísimo a los dos ". Este es solo uno de los caminos que compartiremos. ¡Mi corazón está lleno de felicidad por ustedes dos!

"Obviously I'm not going to play tonight, but just going through shootaround today I felt really good", White said. A guy who is a competitor, he's an all-star.

Does it get questioned because of the history between the two of them?

Adding to the drama was former Cavalier Kyrie Irving coming out in a Celtics jersey after demanding to be traded earlier this year.

Jeremy Lin of the Brooklyn Nets: "Wow. thats horrific. feel awful for Hayward".

"You hurt for him".

"Don't think that he'll escape this moment without scars, whether physical or mental", Cato wrote of Hayward. We have to accept all our opponents and treat them with respect and go out there and compete with them.

So is life, though that can seem a little intrusive at a time like this.
