Hayward from hospital: 'It hurts me that I can't be there'

BOSTON (AP) Celtics forward Gordon Hayward sent a video message from his hospital bed before the team's home opener, telling Boston fans: "It hurts me that I can't be there."

The crowd at the TD Garden for the Celtics' game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night cheered when Hayward appeared on the video screen, wearing a hospital gown and sitting up in bed. He said he was watching the game on TV and "I'm going to be all right."

Hayward was injured in the sixth minute of his first game for the Celtics, crumpling to the floor Tuesday in Cleveland with a gruesome ankle injury. Coach Brad Stevens said Hayward is expected to make a full recovery, but it's not clear if it will be this season.
