Hayward and the Hornets will not play Wednesday against the Wizards after the game was postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The Wizards are still dealing with COVID-19 issues, so Wednesday's game will be played at a later date. The Hornets, who are now on a two-game Week 5, will be off until Friday's game against Chicago.
Hayward (hip) had 25 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 10-10 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in Saturday's 116-113 loss to the Raptors. Hayward seems to have rested Thursday as it was the second game of a back-to-back set. Otherwise, he was unaffected by the strained hip and demonstrated such with 21 first-half points. Hayward did slow down in the second half, but it should not be a major concern in terms of his overall fantasy production.
Hayward (hip) is starting Saturday against the Raptors. The 30-year-old sat out Thursday's contest with a left hip strain, but he'll be back on the court Saturday after the one-game absence. Hayward is averaging 22.0 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals in 34.2 minutes this season.
Hayward (hip) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Raptors. Hayward sat out Thursday's game against the Raptors due to a strained left hip, but it's looking like he'll be back in action Saturday. Prior to suffering the injury Wednesday, he was averaging 22.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 34.9 minutes per game.
Hayward (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Raptors. Hayward was a late scratch for Thursday's game against the Raptors, with the Hornets starting Caleb Martin in the narrow loss. Martin would likely again draw the start and see extended run if Hayward remains shelved Saturday. If Hayward is in, a possible minutes restriction is on the table.
