Despite Hayward's absence, Celts welcome Wiz on a roll

Life without Gordon Hayward is off to an encouraging start for the Boston Celtics, who will look to run their winning streak to nine games when they host the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

Hayward fractured his left hand against the San Antonio Spurs over the weekend and underwent surgery Monday that will sideline him six weeks. Even without the forward, who was off to an All-Star-caliber start, Boston beat the Dallas Mavericks 116-106 Monday night, showcasing the type of depth it'll need to maintain its early success in Hayward's absence.

"(We have to) find ways to win regardless," said Jaylen Brown, who had 25 points and 11 rebounds in the win. "... We know how to win, so we've just got to continue to do that, and I think today was a good example of that."
