Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Signs with Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward has signed a four-year, $120 million contract with the Hornets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

This is a massive deal for Hayward, who turned down his $34 million player option with the Celtics two days prior. There seemed to be some traction for a potential sign-and-trade with the Pacers that would have sent Hayward home to Indiana, but that never came to fruition. Now, Hayward joins the Hornets as the best player on the team. He should take control of a bigger chunk of the offense than he did in Boston, and it's possible we see him return to the kind of production that made him an All-Star in Utah during the 2016-17 campaign. That season, he ranked 33rd in fantasy on a per-game basis while averaging 21.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals.

Gordon Hayward: Turns down $34M player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward officially declined his $34 million player option for the 2020-21 season Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

After the Celtics and Hayward extended the deadline to make a decision, Hayward will leave $34 million on the table and likely seek a longer-term deal elsewhere. While Hayward was an important piece for Boston, his tenure with the team was ill-fated from the start, as a catastrophic ankle injury in the 2017-18 season opener derailed what looked to be an ideal free-agency acquisition. Hayward is yet to fully return to form since the injury, but he nonetheless figures to draw significant interest on the open market in a rather underwhelming free-agency class.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Provides little in Game 6 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward had 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two assists and one rebound in 32 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 loss to Miami.

Hayward came up with very little in the loss, perhaps a sign of fatigue given his less-than-ideal preparation. While he has been serviceable since returning from his ankle injury, Hayward showed some clear signs of rust. With that being said, his mere presence did allow others to get more open looks on the offensive end, keeping the Celtics in the series up until the very end. He is basically who he is at this point in his career. Looking ahead to the 2020-21 season, he should be off the table in the middle rounds of most drafts.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Plays well, will stay in bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward generated six points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block with only one turnover in Saturday's 117-106 Game 3 Eastern Conference finals win over the Heat.

Ignore the stats. The versatile forward returned from an ankle injury to help turn the playoff series around. While he wasn't the best player on the floor for Boston (that was Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum), his 31-minute boost off the bench was a huge lift for the Celtics. Hayward helped the Celtics frequently bust Miami's troublesome zone defense. Boston often relied on his calm playmaking skills to keep the offense moving. In other news, Hayward confirmed during the post-game press conference that he will not leave the Orlando bubble for the birth of his fourth child and will continue playing for Boston. He said that he and his wife Robin decided that Hayward's unexpected return home for injury rehab was enough of a supportive boost for Gordon to return to work and continue playing.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Officially cleared for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) has been officially cleared to play in Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat and will come off the bench with a minutes restriction, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Hayward is making his return after about a month off due to a severely sprained ankle. Considering it's his first game back, he'll come off the bench and have his workload monitored.

September 19, 2020 07:16 PM
Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Expected to come off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) is expected to be available off the bench on a minutes restriction for Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

The team was optimistic about Hayward's return as of Saturday morning, and it appears everything is in line for him to take the court. Though he's slated to come off the bench and have his minutes monitored, his presence will still be important for the Celtics with the team down 2-0 to the Heat.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Team optimistic about availability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Celtics have "significant optimism" that Hayward (ankle) will be able to make his return Saturday against the Heat for Game 3, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Hayward is still officially questionable, but it sounds like he's expected to be available barring any setbacks in pregame warmups. He's missed about a month due to a severely sprained ankle, having not played since Game 1 against the 76ers. Assuming Hayward is cleared, there's a possibility he'll be on a minutes limit, and he may come off the bench.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Questionable for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Hayward has been sidelined since Game 2 against the 76ers due to a severely sprained right ankle. However, it seems like he's on the verge of a return and could be available as soon as Saturday's Game 3. His presence is certainly needed, as the Celtics are down 2-0 to the Heat. More information on Hayward's status may arrive once he's able to test the ankle out during morning shootaround and/or pregame warmups. If he's cleared to play, he could be on a minutes restriction in his first game back.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Ruled out for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) has been ruled out of Thursday's Game 2 against Miami, Clevis Murray of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Hayward will miss a second straight game to begin the series as he continues to battle a sprained right ankle. The belief is that Hayward will be able to return at some point during the Eastern Conference finals, but the Celtics will handle the situation with caution. Hayward has not played since Game 1 of the team's first-round series against Philadelphia.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Doubtful for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) is doubtful for Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Hayward has been going through workouts at practice, but it would be surprising if he's back up to full speed and ready to go by Thursday. Assuming he's out for Game 2 with the Celtics down 0-1, his next chance to play arrives Saturday.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Ruled out for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) has officially been ruled out of Tuesday's Game 1 against Miami.

Earlier Monday, coach Brad Stevens confirmed that Hayward went through a workout at practice, but he was careful not to offer any commitment as to when Hayward could return to game action. The former Butler product is believed to be close, but his return from a sprained right ankle won't come Tuesday as the Celtics open the Eastern Conference finals. Consider Hayward day-to-day as Thursday's Game 2 approaches. The wing has not played since Game 1 of Boston's first-round series against Philadelphia.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Goes through 'hard' workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) participated in a "hard, small group workout" after practice Monday, Malika Andrews of ESPN reports.

Coach Brad Stevens confirmed that Hayward looked good during Monday's session, but he cautioned against reading too far into it as Tuesday's Game 1 against the Heat approaches. "There's a big difference between doing that and officially getting into a game," Stevens told the media. As of Monday afternoon, Hayward has not been officially ruled out for Game 1, but it would be fairly surprising if the forward is cleared to play. However, as he continues to trend in the right direction, Hayward is on track to return at some point during the Eastern Conference finals. Hayward has not played since spraining his right ankle late in Game 1 of the first round against Philadelphia.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Expected back during next series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) remains without a clear timeline to return to the court, though he's expected back at some point during the conference finals, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

Hayward sprained his ankle in the Celtics' first playoff game back in mid-August. He was originally expected to miss four weeks with the injury, a time period which elapses Sunday. That previous estimate now appears to be overly optimistic, though perhaps not by too much if he does indeed return early in the upcoming series against the Heat.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Returning to bubble, still out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) will return to the NBA bubble in Orlando on Sunday but isn't expected to play "anytime soon," Jay King of The Athletic reports.

Hayward will be able to join his teammates after completing his four-day quarantine. Since he's still not completely recovered from his sprained right ankle, Hayward is unlikely to participate in the Celtics' second-round series against the Raptors, but his return would become more likely if Boston advances to the Eastern Conference finals.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Exits bubble for treatment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens confirmed that Hayward (ankle) left the NBA bubble in Orlando on Friday, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

Hayward is expected to be sidelined for around a month after he suffered a Grade 3 sprain of his right ankle Aug. 17 in Game 1 of the Celtics' first-round series with the 76ers, which Boston ended up sweeping. Based on his estimated timeline for recovery, Hayward likely won't be available until at least the NBA Finals, should the Celtics advance that far during the postseason. As a result, Hayward's departure from the Walt Disney World campus doesn't come as a surprise, as he'll now be able to conduct his rehab back in Boston while spending more time with his family. Hayward's wife is pregnant with the couple's fourth child and expected to give birth at some point next month.

Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Expected to miss four weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 ankle sprain and is expected to miss the next four weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

This is a major blow for the Celtics, as Hayward was playing some of his best basketball of the season in the bubble. Hayward suffered the injury late in Monday night's Game 1 win over the Sixers, and he was spotted on crutches, and in a walking boot, Tuesday morning. Given the timeline, Hayward will miss the remainder of Round 1, and he'll likely miss all of Round 2, should Boston advance past Philadelphia.

August 18, 2020 12:56 PM
Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Spotted in walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) was wearing a walking boot on his right foot on Tuesday, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports.

Mannix notes that Hayward was also using crutches and did not appear to be putting any weight on his right foot/ankle. Hayward appeared to sprain the ankle late in the fourth quarter of Monday's win over the Sixers, and he underwent an MRI following the game. With the Celtics set to play Game 2 on Wednesday, Hayward's status looks to be very much in jeopardy.

August 18, 2020 01:40 AM
Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Exits with sprained ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward won't return to Monday's Game 1 matchup with the 76ers due to a sprained right ankle, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Hayward suffered the injury during the fourth quarter and was in visible pain as he limped off the court. He had accumulated 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3PT), four rebounds and three assists across 34 minutes before exiting. Expect the Celtics to provide more clarity on the extent of his injury later Monday or Tuesday.

August 12, 2020 04:52 PM
Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Not playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward will rest for Thursday's contest against the Wizards.

Hayward is one of six key players off for the Celtics' seeding game finale. Plenty of deep bench options should see run, including Grant Williams, Romeo Langford and Semi Ojeleye on the wing.

August 12, 2020 07:08 PM
Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Provides 19 points with four threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward totaled 19 points (7-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 122-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Hayward's been incredibly efficient in Orlando and is outdoing his regular-season averages. It's especially true in the paint, where he's averaging 8.2 boards per game in the bubble. With very little to play for, Hayward and his fellow starters are at risk of reduced output Thursday against the Wizards, but he'll be firing on all cylinders when they kick off the playoffs against their projected opponent, the 76ers.
