Top Gordon Hayward News

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out indefinitely

    Hayward (foot) is out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated in approximately two weeks, per the Hornets' official release.

    Hayward returned to action April 2 for the first time since Feb. 7, but the veteran forward presumably aggravated the left foot injury during the contest, as he was ruled out for the next four games. The Hornets' update all but confirms that assumption, and Hayward will now definitely be sidelined for the play-in tournament and will likely be out for the first round of the playoffs if Charlotte advances. His absence shouldn't impact the Hornets' rotation, as Charlotte has had Hayward available for just four games since Jan. 21.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out vs. Wizards

    Following a one-game return from a foot injury, Hayward will end up missing four straight games to end the year. His status for the play-in is clearly in jeopardy.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out again Friday

    Hayward (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls.

    Hayward will miss a second consecutive contest after returning to action Saturday following nearly a two-month absence due to the foot issue. The veteran forward may have suffered a setback during his return, which would put his status for the rest of the season in serious jeopardy. After Friday, Charlotte will end their regular season Sunday against the Wizards before heading to the play-in tournament.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Ruled out vs. Magic

    Hayward (foot) will not play Thursday against Orlando, as expected, Rod Boone of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward was listed as doubtful, so his absence doesn't come as a surprise. The wing was able to make it back for Saturday's game at Philly, but he may have aggravated the left foot injury that sidelined him from Feb. 9 to March 30. With the play-in tournament just around the corner, Hayward's availability is a massive question mark for the Hornets, who currently sit in 10th place in the East.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Doubtful Thursday

    Hayward (foot) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Magic.

    It appears likely that Hayward will be forced to miss a second straight game as he continues to deal with left foot discomfort. If he's ultimately inactive, Kelly Oubre and Cody Martin should see additional run.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Won't play Tuesday

    Hayward (foot) will not play Tuesday against the Heat.

    Hayward made his long-awaited return to action over the weekend, seeing 17 minutes of action in Saturday's blowout loss to the 76ers and finishing with five points, four assists and three rebounds. Despite off days Sunday and Monday, Hayward is still feeling some discomfort in his left foot, so he'll miss the first of Charlotte's four remaining regular-season games.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Available with minutes restriction

    Hayward (ankle) will be available for Saturday's game against the 76ers, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    While coach James Borrego has been impressed with Hayward's performance in live practice recently, the team will monitor his workload during his first game back on the court since he hasn't played since Feb. 7. Across 48 appearances this year, he's averaged 16.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 32.2 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Officially probable for Saturday

    Hayward (ankle) is officially listed as probable for Saturday's contest against the 76ers, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward has missed the last 22 games due to a severely sprained left ankle, but it appears he will make his return Saturday. If he is indeed available, the veteran will likely garner a minutes limit and may even operate off the bench. His potential presence would also likely mean slightly lesser roles for Kelly Oubre, Jalen McDaniels and Cody Martin.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Could be cleared for contact soon

    Hayward (ankle) said Wednesday that he's "starting to ramp things up" and is planning to begin contact work next week, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward recently shed his walking boot and continues to see slight progression during his rehab, but there's still no definitive timetable for a return to game action. The veteran forward has appeared in just three contests since Jan. 21, so even when he's cleared, he'll likely be under a strict minute restriction. While he likely won't return soon enough to be a major fantasy contributor, his presence would be a huge boost for a Charlotte squad that's clinging to the final play-in spot in the Eastern Conference.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Remains without return timetable

    Hornets head coach James Borrego said Hayward (ankle) got shots up Sunday, but the forward is without a specific timetable to return to the lineup, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Hayward shed his walking boot a week ago, but he still hasn't progressed to live action. However, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer suggests that the veteran forward could reach that step sometime during Charlotte's upcoming five-game homestand, which begins Wednesday versus the Hawks. Until he resumes full-contact work in practice, however, he can probably be viewed as week-to-week rather than day-to-day. In the meantime, P.J. Washington should continue benefiting from Hayward's absence.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Sheds walking boot

    Hornets head coach James Borrego said Monday that Hayward is no longer using a walking boot for his sprained left ankle, but the forward is without a clear timeline for a return to action, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports. "[Hayward is] making progress. I can say that," Borrego said. "He's pushing it, he's headed in the right direction."

    Borrego's comments offer hope that Hayward will be ready to go at some point late in the regular season, but until he resumes full-contact work in practice, he can probably be viewed as week-to-week rather than day-to-day. Hayward has been sidelined since early February with the ankle injury, paving the way for P.J. Washington to become a regular in the starting five alongside Miles Bridges.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Remains out indefinitely

    Hayward (ankle) remains out indefinitely, Hornets radio play-by-play man Will Palaszczuk reports.

    Hayward sprained ligaments in his left ankle roughly two weeks ago, and the team is yet to provide anything in the way of a firm timetable. The veteran was not at practice Wednesday, and at this point it doesn't appear that he's close to making his return to the court -- let alone to game action. So long as Hayward remains out, Terry Rozier, Kelly Oubre and Miles Bridges could all benefit, while Cody Martin and P.J. Washington could also pick up a few extra minutes.
