The pain is reportedly due to the gruesome leg injury in which the 29-year-old striker suffered an ankle injury and a broken tibia when he made his Celtics debut in 2017.
Hayward averages 17.5 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists, 55.6 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from three games in 11 games for Boston this season.
