The Celtics will apply for salary cap relief to potentially pursue another player because of the severity of Gordon Hayward’s injury. President of basketball operations Danny Ainge told the Globe on Friday the club is applying for the Disabled Player Exception, which would provide the Celtics $8.4 million to pursue a player to fill Hayward’s roster spot.

The Celtics also have an open roster spot — they broke camp with 14 players — and could use that space to add a player. Ainge said he is being patient with the process. And players who signed new contracts this summer are eligible to be traded on Dec. 15. “If there’s a deal that we have to do, we’ll do it,’’ Ainge said. “But until there’s a deal that we like, we won’t do it.”
Brad Stevens: “I called Frank Vogel the day I drove to the gym, when we played Milwaukee, and just asked him, ‘What are some of the things that Paul did in his year off that you would really encourage? What are some of the things that we should be looking [to]?’ And, hey, [Hayward is] going to be the best guy shooting out of a chair, with his left hand, with his right hand, perfect his form, and let’s have fun. Let’s come up with creative ways to attack this thing.”
