Celtics Gordon Hayward undergoes successful surgery
Good news for Celtics fans, despite the not being able to watch their team in the NBA Finals, following a Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers this past Sunday.
Gordon Hayward underwent successful surgery to remove the plate and screws that were implanted following a broken fibula he suffered back on opening night in October. The removal of the plate and screws were causing irritation to his peroneal tendons, according to the Celtics.
Hayward's ankle and fibula are both structurally sound and the Celtics forward can return to the basketball court in six to eight weeks. He should be at full strength by the start of training camp in September.

Celtics center and pending free agent Aron Baynes underwent successful nasal septoplasty surgery for a nasal fracture. He suffered the broken nose in Boston's Game 6 loss in Eastern Conference Finals against Cleveland.
Baynes is expected to resume basketball related activities in two to four weeks.
