Top Gordon Hayward News

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Continues strong stretch

    Hayward supplied 18 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 127-125 loss to Milwaukee.

    Hayward had a two-game steak of 20-plus points snapped, but he nonetheless put together a solid line in the narrow loss. The veteran forward has bounced back from a miserable one-point effort Nov. 24 against Orlando by averaging 19.8 points over his subsequent four contests. Hayward's overall numbers are down slightly this season, but he remains an integral piece of Charlotte's up-and-coming squad.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Records 16 points Monday

    Hayward finished with 16 points (5-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block during Monday's 109-103 win over the Wizards.

    Hayward posted his third consecutive double-digit performance offensively, as the veteran was able to reach the 16-point mark for an 11th time this season despite struggling overall inside the arc. His two threes actually were the most he has made since Nov. 14 against Golden State. Hayward was recently two of his last 12 shooting the three entering Monday's game.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Cleared to play

    Hayward is available to play during Wednesday's contest against the Wizards.

    The 31-year-old wing came into Wednesday's contest with a probable tag but will officially be active for Charlotte's contest against Washington. Hayward has yet to miss a game for the Hornets this season and has started to find a bit of a scoring groove as of late, totaling at least 20 points in three out of his last four showings. However, the Butler product's averages of 18.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game are all slightly down from the figures he posted during his first season in Charlotte one year ago.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Probable Wednesday

    Hayward (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Wizards.

    Hayward landed on the injury report Tuesday with right hamstring discomfort and is officially listed as probable for Wednesday's meeting with Washington. After scoring 20-plus points in six of seven contests, the 31-year-old forward was held to just 10 points during the Hornets' 106-102 win over the Warriors on Sunday. If he is unable to suit, then Kelly Oubre would likely take his spot in the starting rotation.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Reaches 25-point mark again

    Hayward closed with 25 points (6-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 11-11 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal across 38 minutes during Wednesday's 118-108 win over Memphis.

    Hayward has scored at least 25 points in three of his last five games, and he has surpassed the 20-point mark four times in that span as well. While he's had a few up-and-down performances of late, his role as the Hornets' main scorer and go-to player offensively shouldn't be under any threat, especially if he keeps scoring as he has done it over the last few days.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Scores 25 points at Sacramento

    Hayward recorded 25 points (10-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 35 minutes during a 140-110 loss Friday against the Kings.

    Surprisingly, Hayward is excelling during road games. He averaged 23.8 points on 7.0 field goals made (2.7 of them three-pointers) across the Hornets' last four away matchups. Their next three games are not at Charlotte, so fantasy managers will benefit if Hayward replicates stat lines from his four-game span.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Logs double-double in loss

    Hayward finished Wednesday's loss to the Warriors with 23 points (8-15 FG, 2-3 3PT, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 37 minutes.

    Hayward's strong performance came on the heels of a six-point, three-rebound dud against Cleveland on Monday. In Wednesday's contest, the veteran forward registered a season high in rebounds while finishing over the 20-point mark for the fourth time in nine games. It's been an up-and-down campaign for Hayward, but he is holding steady fantasy value with per-game averages of 17.3 points, 5.0 boards, 3.8 assists and 2.3 three-pointers.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Held to six points

    Hayward finished with six points (2-7 FG, 2-6 3PT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 29 minutes Monday against Cleveland.

    Hayward attempted fewer than 10 field goals for the first time this season, as Miles Bridges (18 attempts) Terry Rozier (22 attempts) and LaMelo Ball (22 attempts) accounted for 62 of the team's 102 shot attempts on the evening. Despite a sluggish showing Monday, Hayward has finished in double figures in six of his first eight games and will look to get back on track Wednesday at Golden State.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Great performance in win

    Hayward finished Wednesday's win over the Magic with 24 points (9-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block across 37 minutes.

    The veteran forward put on another fantastic showing, notching his second 20-point performance of the season. Hayward is now averaging 18.4 points, 5.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds while shooting north of 40 percent from three. Those numbers closely match his career output and given his consistency, he should continue to produce at this level.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Scores 27 in win

    Hayward posted 27 points (10-22 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 35 minutes on Wednesday, as the Hornets beat the Pacers 123-122.

    Hayward and LaMelo Ball (31 points) were the only Hornets to score more than 14 points in the outing. Hayward is perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the offensive void created by the absence of Terry Rozier (back). Hayward held averages of 19.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists in an injury-shortened last season, and production in this range is a reasonable fantasy expectation moving forward.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Returns to practice Friday

    Hayward cleared NBA Health and Safety Protocols and returned to practice Friday, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    Hayward missed the majority of the preseason after entering COVID-19 protocols. The 31-year-old will likely be available for the Hornets' regular-season opener against the Pacers on Oct. 20.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out again Wednesday

    Hayward (COVID-19 protocols) won't play in Wednesday's preseason contest against the Mavericks.

    Hayward will miss the Hornets' final preseason contest, and he will set his sights on returning for the regular-season opener against the Pacers on Oct. 20. The 31-year-old was fully healthy entering training camp and appeared ready to build off a solid first season in Charlotte, but his prolonged absence could hinder his start to the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Not expected to play Monday

    Hayward (health and safety protocols) is not expected to play Monday against the Heat, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Head coach James Borrego wasn't optimistic about Hayward's chances of playing against Miami, and he said he's hopeful to get clarity on the two players dealing with the COVID-19 diagnosis -- Hayward and Mason Plumlee -- soon with an eye towards having both back later this week. With that in mind, his next chance to play would be next Wednesday in the preseason finale against the Mavericks.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out Monday

    Hayward (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) has been ruled out for Monday's preseason game against the Heat.

    Just as head coach James Borrego suggested earlier Sunday, Hayward won't be available Monday while he waits to clear all health and safety protocols. Borrego noted that he hopes to gain more clarity on Hayward's status by the end of the week, but in addition to sitting out Monday, the veteran forward looks doubtful for Wednesday's exhibition finale against the Mavericks.
