Although he’s out with a broken hand, Boston Celtics small forward Gordon Hayward is still able to do things with his hand, as he continues playing video games normally. He says playing video games has actually served as rehab to keep his fingers moving:

Gordon had surgery on Nov. 12. He is expected to miss six weeks, but not his gaming time. Knowing he’s an avid gamer, missing both basketball and gaming would have been rough for the swingman.
So far this season he is averaging 18.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. Hayward struggled last season for Boston, as he was making his way back from that infamous ankle injury he suffered against the Cleveland Cavaliers on opening night of the 2017/18 season.
Just when he was recovering his confidence, looking like a threat to his rivals, he went down with this new injury. Luckily, he didn’t hurt his lower body, and his rehab seems to be coming along without any problem.
