ESPN's Michael Wilbon reported that Hayward will have surgery today.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said the situation is hard for him personally, but Hayward will have lots of support.
This offseason the Celtics acquired Hayward in free agency as he was coming off of his first All-Star appearance by signing him to a four-year, $128 million contract. "But we're not even thinking about a timeframe right now". "I think it's very unlikely he'll play this season". The Cavaliers beat the Celtics 102-99 on Tuesday.
"I prayed for him", said James Johnson, who shares the same agent as Hayward.
Hayward was expected to make a full recovery, but Stevens did not know if he would be able to return this season.
