The injury bug just can’t stop biting the Boston Celtics.
Forward Gordon Hayward will miss Wednesday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks with left foot soreness, according to the team. The Celtics already are without Marcus Smart, Robert Williams and Vincent Poirier, who are dealing with eye, hip and finger issues, respectively.
Hayward’s foot injury isn’t something that just cropped up over the past 24 hours, according to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.
