The Celtics have released their full injury report for Monday night. And Hayward is the only player confirmed to be out, per NBC Sports Boston's Chris Forsberg.

Hayward suffered a left hand fracture against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday afternoon. So, seeing him declared out is no surprise.

Hayward's injury occurred just before halftime when he ran hard into Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge and came up holding his hand.

His timetable for return from the injury is currently unclear, but he is expected to miss multiple weeks at the very least.

As for Enes Kanter, he played in the team's season opener against the Philadelphia 76ers, but he has been out since that contest with the knee injury. He has been listed as questionable in recent injury reports, so maybe he'll finally be healthy enough to return against the Mavericks.

Meanwhile, Romeo Langford most recently played for the Maine Red Claws, the Celtics' G League affiliate, and performed well. He could be in line for a minor role off the bench as the Celtics look to fill in for Hayward, but it's unclear how many minutes the lottery pick may get.

The Celtics take on the Mavericks at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday as they look to extend their winning streak to eight. Tune in to NBC Sports Boston at 7:00 p.m. for Celtics Pregame Live and stream both the game and the pregame show on the MyTeams App.
