Injured Celtic Gordon Hayward sent his fans a video message before the Celtics home opener at the TD Garden last night. The message was made in his hospital bed before Hayward went in for surgery after his horrible injury 6 minutes into game one of the season. Hayward suffered a gruesome ankle break so it was nice to see a little smile from him on the video message.

‘‘What’s up, everybody? Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s had me in their thoughts and prayers,"

Hayward is expected to make a full recovery but will probably miss the entire season for the Celtics.
