  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Healthy entering camp

    Hayward is 100 percent healthy ahead of training camp, which starts Tuesday, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Hayward entered last season healthy as well, commencing the campaign with 18.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists through his first seven contests in 2022-23. He then missed chunks of the season with shoulder, hamstring and thumb injuries, but he shot 47.5 percent from the field across 50 appearances. The 33-year-old finds himself in a suddenly crowded rotation, but health with not be an impediment to start the season.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out again Friday

    Hayward (thumb) will sit out Thursday versus the Rockets.

    Hayward will skip a fifth straight game as the Hornets continue to sit most of the team's regulars for various reasons. He has one more chance to retake the floor before the season expires, but don't hold your breath.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Still sidelined Tuesday

    Hayward (thumb) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out Sunday

    Hayward (thumb) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors, as expected.

    Hayward was listed as doubtful and now we have official confirmation that he'll be spending his third straight game on the sidelines. Expect more run for Bryce McGowens and Svi Mykhailiuk sans Hayward, with Mykhailiuk being the preferable target. Hayward's next chance to play will come in Tuesday's rematch with Toronto.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Doubtful Sunday

    Hayward (thumb) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

    A sprained left thumb is expected to keep Hayward shelved for a third straight game. If that's the case, he'll have just three more chances to return before the conclusion of the season.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Officially out Friday

    Hayward (thumb) has been ruled out Friday against Chicago, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

    Hayward was doubtful ahead of Friday's matchup and will officially be forced to miss a second consecutive game due to a sprained thumb. Bryce McGowens took his place in the starting lineup Tuesday and will likely have an opportunity to start once again Friday.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Not expected to suit up Friday

    Hayward (thumb) sports a doubtful designation for Friday's game versus the Bulls, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward appears likely to miss out on his second consecutive game while nursing a thumb sprain, and the Hornets have little incentive to rush him back to a team that sits well outside the playoff picture with just over a week remaining in the regular season. Barring a turnaround in his status, Hayward's next opportunity to suit up surfaces Sunday against the Raptors, while Bryce McGowens likely lines up for his second straight start.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Officially out Tuesday

    Hayward (thumb) will not play Tuesday against the Thunder.

    The Hornets will also be without Terry Rozier (foot), Kelly Oubre (shoulder) and Cody Martin (knee). With so many holes in the rotation, the Hornets could give guys like Svi Mykhailiuk, JT Thor and Bryce McGowens a long look down the stretch.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Listed as doubtful for Tuesday

    Hayward (thumb) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

    Hayward appears to have sprained his thumb during Sunday's win over Dallas and will likely be sidelined for the first time since Jan. 23. He's just one of a litany of Hornets nursing injuries, so there'll be plenty of minutes available Tuesday for the likes of Bryce McGowens, Svi Mykhailiuk and Dennis Smith.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Leading scorer in Sunday's win

    Hayward had a team-high 22 points (8-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds and four assists over 32 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 win over the Mavericks.

    After a tough stretch earlier in March, Hayward has popped for more than 20 points in three of the last four games, with the Hornets winning all three of them. The veteran forward's performance Sunday came with both Kelly Oubre (shoulder) and Terry Rozier (foot) in street clothes though, and Hayward will likely return to his complementary role in the offense once they get healthy.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Fuels big comeback win

    Hayward ended Monday's 115-109 win over the Pacers with 22 points (8-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 34 minutes.

    Hayward helped guide the Hornets to a comeback win, scoring nine points in the final five minutes. Monday's game marked only the second time in March that Hayward has topped 20 points, but he's remained a roster-worthy option during that stretch while the Hornets have been without LaMelo Ball (ankle). Terry Rozier and Kelly Oubre are locked in as Charlotte's preferred scorers and playmakers, but Hayward and P.J. Washington have remained serviceable fantasy commodities in secondary roles.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Lackadaisical in heavy loss

    Hayward posted six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes during Friday's 121-82 loss to Philadelphia.

    Hayward appeared disinterested in the loss, and given the eventual outcome, who could blame him? With the Hornets now playing for lottery balls only, it makes sense that Hayward could be scaled back over the coming weeks. For now, he remains a viable 12-team asset, albeit an unappealing one. Beyond that, there is certainly a chance he fades into obscurity before the season is done.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Struggles with shot Thursday

    Hayward contributed two points (1-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, six assists and one block over 33 minutes during Thursday's 113-103 win over the Pistons.

    Hayward matched his season-low output in the contest, connecting on just one of his nine attempts from the field while misfiring from deep on both of his tries. Given that he's coming off of 10 straight games with at least 12 points, averaging 19.7 per game during that span, this outing should be chalked up as just an off night for Hayward.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Teases triple-double in win

    Hayward finished with 23 points (9-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and one block over 36 minutes during Tuesday's 112-105 victory over the Knicks.

    The veteran wing has never recorded a triple-double in his career, but he came within sniffing distance of one Tuesday to help the Hornets end the Knicks' nine-game win streak. Hayward has scored in double digits in 10 straight games, averaging 19.7 points, 4.9 boards, 4.9 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch while shooting 53.8 percent from the floor and 45.5 percent from beyond the arc, and he should maintain elevated usage down the stretch with LaMelo Ball (ankle) done for the season.
