Stephen Curry’s posts encouraging message for Gordon Hayward after injury
The messages of support for Gordon Hayward are continuing to pile up. During halftime of their game against the Houston Rockets, Stephen Curry took advantage of the break to send his own for the Boston Celtics forward.
The former back-to-back MVP took to his Twitter account to ask his followers to pray for Hayward, as he understands that the injury the Celtics star suffered could affect his career moving forward.
🙏🏽🙏🏽 For @gordonhayward. Come back stronger!

With less than six minutes into his debut for the C’s, the Gordon Hawyard landed awkwardly and quickly sat on the floor in pain. The broadcast then showed that his foot was already misaligned, prompting speculations to emerge that he may have broken his foot or leg. Head coach Brad Stevens then shed light on the real condition of his starting small forward, and said that the initial diagnosis is a dislocated ankle and fractured tibia instead.
Stephen Curry’s message only goes to show that despite competing against one another, players still only want the best for their peers, especially not to see anyone get hurt. The phrase “bigger than basketball” may seem more of a cliché, but these players prove that their brotherhood is indeed more than the game.
