Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome ankle injury just six minutes into his Boston Celtics career that has derailed some of the excitement surrounding the NBA season opening up tonight.
Numerous NFL players send their heart-felt prayers to Hayward but one in particular decided to inspire Hayward to comeback stronger than ever.
Barwin posted a photo of the same injury Hayward sustained seven years ago when he was a member of the Houston Texans:

Barwin points out that he hasn’t missed a game since the injury in 2010.
Here’s hoping Hayward can bounce back from this and live out his dream of playing for the Boston Celtics.
