The Boston Celtics were dealt a massive blow on opening night when Gordon Hayward went down with a nasty ankle injury. The small forward is expected to miss the entire season, but that didn’t stop him from giving Celtics fans a Christmas present by walking onto the court, without a walking boot or crutches, and wishing the crowd a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
He ended it with “go Celtics,” and the fans went absolutely bonkers.
