Celtics' Gordon Hayward (leg) undergoes surgery to remove plate, screws

Celtics' Gordon Hayward (leg) undergoes surgery to remove plate, screws

Nevertheless, he's set to become a free agent this season, and he's already stated that he wants way more than the 12 to 14 million dollars the team is able to offer him, stating that he's worth more because of "all the things he does that don't show up on the stat sheet", so keeping him is going to be quite hard unless they make several trades. I also remember how great they are and how young they are still. He felt like things weren't progressing as he had hoped, and the plate just made him a little bit uncomfortable.

"We're all replaceable. Nobody is irreplaceable, but Marcus is certainly a player that has been big for us over the last few years".

Ainge also provided an update on Hayward's progress after the small forward suffered a leg injury just six minutes into the first game of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

Irving and Hayward must have wondered how much they could have helped if they had remained healthy. Boston's all I know. "We can't think about 'what could have been.' But when Kyrie is on our team, we're at another level". I'm really excited about Gordon and Kyrie. This quote is bad timing after his brutal performance in Sunday's Game 7 defeat, but to be fair, he was playing at less than 100 percent.

Known for his defensive tenacity, the 24-year-old Smart's comments didn't necessarily come out of nowhere, as both he and his agent have been more than confident with what Smart was going to find himself making after the 2017-18 season. It's just simply he's got a million cameras in front of him and got a bunch mics in front of him.

Nigeria World Cup kit drives fans wild ahead of England friendly
England got off to a great start against Nigeria today, taking the lead in the 6th minute through a Gary Cahill header. The 23-year-old spurned a number of chances to score at Wembley before being cautioned for diving in the second half.

"It was a very disappointing loss", Ainge said. You want to feel that way.

There's been this weird, completely wrong sentiment around NBA Twitter (mostly from trolls) that the Celtics don't need Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving.

"At this time previous year", he said, "I couldn't have said that we were going to have 11 new players off the team that just won 52 games and won a playoff round (actually two), but you just don't know what opportunities present themselves". But I like this group of guys. After Kyrie Irving getting injured in the middle of March just before the playoff run.

That's good news for Hayward and the Celtics, who, while impressed by the play of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, could clearly use some added offensive pop from the wing and a veteran presence. "But in the medical world, I guess I'm never surprised", he said.

"I got a lot to think about".
