Hayward stayed down for several minutes before being taken off the floor on a stretcher with his leg in a cast.
He was then flown via MedFlight to Boston and New England Baptist Hospital.
"You hurt for him. It's a tough, tough deal, but I guess that's part of the risk of injury. I really feel for him," said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens after the game.
Hayward came over to the Celtics from the Utah Jazz in the offseason as a free agent.
The reaction of all the players tells the story. Gordon Hayward with a brutal injury. Less than 6 minutes into Celtics career. Brutal.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) October 18, 2017
