George, J.J. Watt among many sending Hayward wishes after gruesome injury

Gordon Hayward suffered one of the more disturbing pro sports injuries in recent memory. Those who have had similar luck were quick to send their well wishes. 

Hayward could be seen looking at his left leg/ankle in horror after crashing to the floor following an alley-oop attempt in the first quarter of Tuesday’s season opener in Cleveland. Paul George, who in 2014 broke his leg in gruesome fashion during a Team USA showcase, tweeted his prayers for Hayward in the moments after the injury.

J.J. Watt, who is out for the season again after he suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg in Week 5, also tweeted his support. 

In addition to George and Watt, a cast of Hayward’s peers voiced their thoughts for him. So too did Hayward's former team.
