Gordon Hayward just can’t catch a break.
The Boston Celtics star suffered a fractured left hand Saturday night during an awkward collision with San Antonio Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge. Hayward, who looked like his old self through seven games, will visit a hand specialist Monday before determining whether to have surgery.
Most views of the play make it hard to see exactly what happened to Hayward. However, a slo-mo video shown on the Spurs broadcast offers the clearest view yet.

Again, the guy can’t catch a break.
The Celtics went on to blow out the Spurs by 20 points on their own floor. How Boston adjusts to life without Hayward (again) remains to be seen.
