Gordon Hayward suffers fractured left hand against Spurs

Hayward, who is in his third season with the Celtics and scored a career high-tying 39 points on Tuesday against Cleveland, told reporters he was exhausted of fielding questions about his health.

This calendar year, by way of seven game titles, he'd looked magnificent and the Celtics had been firing on all cylinders.

With the Knicks and Blazers, Kanter averaged 13.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 67 games while shooting 54.9 percent from the field, 29.4 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free-throw line. The Celtics have outscored their opponents 115-101 since that opening loss and raised that dominance against the Spurs.

Hayward was crunched by an Aldridge screen in the second quarter, for which Aldridge was called for an offensive foul, and began shaking his left hand.

On Oct. 13, 1997, Schreiber was found guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of John Dale Terry a year earlier. After recovering from the near-death experience, Schreiber filed a petition demanding to be released from prison.

It's the second notable injury for Hayward, who missed nearly all the 2017-2018 season because of an ankle injury.

The Spurs, meanwhile, come into play with a 5-3 record, and have won four of their five home games this season.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that if Hayward does undergo surgery, it could lead to a quicker return.
