Celtics' Hayward suffers ankle fracture

Hayward jumped in an effort to catch a pass from a team-mate when he came down on his ankle on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old was taken off the court on a stretcher, with the Celtics later confirming an ankle fracture.

Hayward was picked up in free agency this offseason by the Celtics.

He signed a four-year, $127million contract. Hayward had two points and a rebound at the time of his injury.

Garnett bids farewell after 21 NBA seasons

Former NBA MVP and champion Kevin Garnett is set to retire after 21 seasons, bidding farewell to fans via a video posted to Instagram on Friday.

He reportedly reached a buyout agreement with the Minnesota Timberwolves, ending a remarkable run with the team, Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets.

Garnett arrived as a fresh-faced 19-year-old kid and leaves as a highly decorated 40-year-old NBA veteran.

"I'm just thankful, man. I can't ever put that into words, I'm just thankful," Garnett says in the voiceover on the video.
