Hayward's injury making waves in Vegas

No timetable has been announced yet for Gordon Hayward, but his injury has already shifted things significantly in Las Vegas. Better than even money to win the East entering the season, the Cavaliers are now even more prohibitive favorites. Meanwhile, the Celtics' chances were cut significantly, and their odds to win the NBA title dropped from 10-1 to 20-1.
