After suffering from a harrowing and traumatic ankle injury on NBA opening night, one wouldn’t blame Gordon Hayward if he decided to not set foot inside a basketball court for a while.But just four weeks after the incident, the extremely dedicated 27-year-old forward is back in the gym, working on his shooting form—albeit sitting from a chair in the dark.ADVERTISEMENT In an appearance in NBC Boston last week, Hayward revealed that the first thing he requested after his injury from head coach Brad Stevens was to be given a basketball.After bearing his heart out in an emotional interview, Hayward was also recorded working on his passing skills while again being seated on a chair.Meanwhile, Hayward has been ruled out for the rest of the 2017-2018 season.Despite his absence, the Celtics are currently the hottest team in the league right now, owning a 9-win streak en route to best record in the NBA. /raRELATED STORY:ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson WATCH: ’Emotional’ Hayward recalls how his family felt after horrific injurySports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Lue unhappy with ’embarrassing’ Cavs It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Severe flooding has reportedly taken place in Grand Cape Mount County, killing at least one person, destroying properties and leaving several residents homeless.A 16-year old boy of Nagbena Town reportedly drowned while attempting to flee from the rising tide that was surrounding the town.The flooding over the last 4 days has also left farms and crops destroyed, increasing the hardship of the residents, most of whom are unemployed.Many who survive on farming, hunting and fishing are now left vulnerable, the report said.According to a release from the WASH Reporters & Editors Network of Liberia, the flood started last Thursday, September 17 following hours of heavy downpour.WASH reporters, who visited the county over the weekend, said they witnessed flooding in most of the communities including Tewor District up to Sunday, September 20.The flooded communities include Bo Waterside, Nagbena, Kobolia, Amina, Jaliebah, Bandor, Bombohun, Jenneh Liberia, Gambia and Gondama.The flooding is largely a result of the overflowing of the Mano River, due to the heavy rains.The area worst affected is the Baptist Compound in Bo- Waterside. The Compound established in 2011 has a hospital, senior high school, and residential quarters for nurses and teachers.All of the facilities in the compound were seriously flooded, damaging thousands of United States dollars worth of properties, including newly arrived medical equipment and drugs, educational materials and computers, among other supplies brought into the country.Authorities of the Baptist Compound described the flood as devastating and beyond imagination.Residents in the affected areas informed WASH reporters that the flooding was the first of its kind to take place in their communities. Some of them said, however, that such major flooding usually occurs every five to ten years.The residents have meanwhile called on the government, local and international organizations to assist the flood victims with relief items.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
