Not even the Celtics’ pets can avoid injuries this season, as Gordon Hayward’s dog had to go under the knife today.
Hayward’s wife, Robyn, announced on social media Friday that Bubbie, the family’s German Shepherd, had to undergo surgery to fix a torn ACL. “Bubbie’s in surgery for tearing his ACL so say a little prayer for our baby boy,” she said.
Hayward is still recovering from a fractured left knee that he injured in the season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Brad Stevens has repeatedly said that Hayward will not return for this year’s regular season or playoffs.
Silver lining: if you’re going to have someone be by your side through rehab, it may as well be man’s best friend.
