Gordon Hayward News
Charlotte Hornets small/power forward Gordon Hayward (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's contest vs. Chicago as he continues to battle a sore left foot. Hayward has played all of 17 minutes since Feb. 7, with his absence paving the way for P.J. Washington to remain a staple of the starting five. The Hornets' offense has evolved in Hayward's absence, with Miles Bridges (20.3), LaMelo Ball (20.0), Terry Rozier (19.3), all having surpassed Hayward in terms of PPG average this season. While the veteran could be a savvy DFS asset come the Play-in Tournament or postseason if ultimately cleared, he'll need to display an ability to log 30-plus minutes before he is an option.
Charlotte Hornets small forward Gordon Hayward (foot) is listed as doubtful ahead of Thursday night's game against the Orlando Magic. The veteran is dealing with left foot soreness. He was out of action for nearly two months due to a left ankle sprain, but returned to the court this past Saturday. That's been the only game he's been able to play since his return. He logged 17 minutes in the game and shot 2-for-6 from the field while scoring five points. If he indeed sits out on Thursday, his next chance to play will be on Friday against the Chicago Bulls.
Charlotte Hornets forward Gordon Hayward (ankle) is officially set to make his long-awaited return to the court on Saturday, when the team takes on the Philadelphia 76ers. He is officially listed as probable, but Rod Boone of the Charlotte Hornets stated that Hayward will be in action for the game. The 32-year-old has missed each of the team's last 22 games due to a left ankle sprain. He'll likely be eased into things upon his return, but he will help give the team some much-needed depth. Over 48 games this year, he's averaged 16.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 three-pointers per game. He'll likely cut into the playing time of Cody Martin and Kelly Oubre Jr.
Charlotte Hornets forward Gordon Hayward (ankle) is looking at missing an extended amount of time. This is a tough blow to both Hayward and the Hornets roster. It doesn't seem like Hayward can catch a break after recently returning from COVID-19 protocols. The Hornets didn't offer a timetable for Hayward, so fantasy managers can expect him to be sidelined for the foreseeable future. Kelly Oubre Jr. and P.J. Washington are expected to have increased roles with Hayward sidelined. Honestly, both players are worth looking at in standard leagues right now.
