Boston Celtics small forward Gordon Hayward underwent successful surgery Wednesday to remove the plate and screws that were inserted following the broken fibula he suffered on October 17 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team announced.
Hayward’s ankle and fibula are both structurally sound and the removal of the plate and screws was necessary, as they were causing irritation to his peroneal tendons.
Hayward is scheduled to return to basketball activities in six to eight weeks and expected to be at full strength for the start of training camp. He signed a four-year deal worth about $128 million last offseason.
