Hayward was hurt after running into LaMarcus Aldridge on a screen late in the second quarter of Saturday’s game. It was a rough break for him considering his luck since signing with Boston. He broke his leg in his first game with the team and missed all of the season. Then last year he had a rough time as he was returning from the injury. Finally this season he had been doing great, averaging 20.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists while shooting 56.4 percent from the field prior to the injury, but now he is sidelined.
