As soon as Gordon Hayward came down awkwardly on his ankle during the opening night tilt between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, you know the result was going to be bad.
But you didn’t need to see the actual Gordon Hayward injury to figure that out.
Just watch the Cavs reaction to the Gordon Hayward injury from the bench:

There’s no fluff there – that’s all 100 percent legit natural reaction.
You can also see Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, who was on the court next to Hayward not initially realize what happened. But then he looked down at the injured Celtics forward and nearly threw up once he figured out what he just saw.
Many of the Cavs players, including LeBron James and Isaiah Thomas (who actually went into the Celtics locker room) rushed over to console the former Utah Jazz star, who suffered a fractured left ankle.
