The NBA has granted the Boston Celtics a disabled-player exception for the likely season-ending loss of Gordon Hayward, league sources told The Vertical.

The Celtics’ exception is worth $8.4 million and expires on March 10. Boston can use it to sign a player to a one-year contract or acquire a player within that salary in the last season of his deal.

Hayward had surgery last week to repair a dislocated left ankle and fractured left tibia that occurred during the Celtics’ season-opening loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 7.

Boston is 3-2 this season and has relied upon the swift development of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum in Hayward’s absence.

The Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in talks to try to acquire Phoenix Suns forward Trevor Ariza, league sources told ESPN.

The teams have been working to reach an agreement with a third team that would take on Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as part of a potentially larger deal, league sources said.

The Suns want to land a playmaking guard and a draft asset as the price of unloading Ariza, sources said. Phoenix and Los Angeles have made progress in third-team scenarios, although no agreements are close and both teams remain active in multiple trade discussions throughout the league, sources said.
