Gordon Hayward will have to wait until the 2018-19 season for his next opportunity to suit up for the Boston Celtics.

Hayward suffered a gruesome ankle, lower-leg injury in the Celtics’ season-opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 17. The star forward since has undergone successful surgery, and there was some hope that he could return to the court at some point this season.

Unfortunately for the C’s, they will be without Hayward for the duration of the 2017-18 campaign. In a blog post published Wednesday, the 2017 All-Star made it clear the injury will keep him out of action until next season.
