Hayes (hip) won't require surgery and will be reevaluated in eight weeks after rest and rehabilitation, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The 19-year-old, who suffered the hip injury Jan. 4 against the Bucks, will be sidelined for the remainder of the first half of the 2020-21 campaign. The second half of the season is expected to begin in mid-March -- though the NBA hasn't officially set the schedule -- and Hayes' status should be updated as he progresses through the rehab process.
Hayes was diagnosed Wednesday with a torn labrum in his right hip following an MRI, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The Pistons have yet to provide a timeline for his return.
Hayes sustained the injury when he tumbled to the floor on a drive to the basket during Monday's 125-115 loss to the Bucks. Though a target date for Hayes' return to game action hasn't been established, he'll likely be sidelined for weeks, if not months, due to the injury. Derrick Rose picked up the majority of the minutes at point guard following Hayes' departure, though Delon Wright could end up taking Hayes' spot in the starting five if head coach Dwane Casey wants to keep his second unit intact.
Hayes (hip) is doubtful for Wednesday's matchup against the Bucks.
Hayes has been diagnosed with a strained right hip and he's unlikely to be available for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. Considering he was seemingly in considerable discomfort and he underwent an MRI to better diagnose the injury, we shouldn't be surprised if the rookie misses multiple games. Assuming he misses time, Delon Wright, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Saddiq Bey could all see extra run.
Pistons head coach Dwane Casey said Hayes would undergo an MRI on Tuesday after exiting Monday's 125-115 loss to the Bucks with an apparent right hip injury, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. "[Team doctors] thought it was the hip flexor, but they weren't sure," Casey said of Hayes' injury.
The No. 7 overall pick suffered what looked to be a non-contact injury in the third quarter, when he fell to the ground while attempting to deny a pass while the Bucks were in transition. He played 13 minutes before departing, finishing with seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three turnovers and one assist. Hayes had already been slow to adapt to the jump in competition to the NBA level, and the injury may present another obstacle he'll have to overcome in the development process. Expect the Pistons to provide a firmer diagnosis for Hayes' injury -- as well as a timeline for his return to the court -- once the results of his MRI are read later Tuesday.
Hayes left Monday's game against Milwaukee due to a right hip injury, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.
Hayes suffered a non-contact injury in the first half, and the team has since confirmed that he won't return. He'll require further evaluation before a diagnosis is confirmed.
Hayes played 23 minutes during Friday's 96-93 win over the Celtics, posting zero points (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six assists and one rebound.
Hayes' six assists to just two turnovers was a nice mark, but the rookie has now failed to convert a shot from the field in two games, and he's made just one free throw on the season. Detroit seems content to let the No. 7 pick work through his struggles, which is good for fantasy managers who took a chance on the point guard. However, he hasn't shown much to indicate that he'll be worth a spot in standard leagues this season.
Hayes (ankle) is active for Friday's game against the Celtics, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Hayes was expected to play Friday after going through shootaround with no concerns, and he'll officially be in uniform against Boston. The 2020 first-round pick is averaging 5.0 points, 3.5 assists and 1.5 rebounds over 21.5 minutes per game to begin his rookie season.
Hayes (ankle) will play Friday against the Celtics, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Despite a sprained right ankle, the rookie will take the court against Boston. He's struggling with averages of 5.0 points, 3.5 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 21.5 minutes while shooting just 27.6 percent from the field.
Hayes (ankle) "should be ready to go" Friday against the Celtics, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Hayes is listed as questionable for Friday's game but went through shootaround with no concerns, so he'll likely take the court Friday. The rookie is struggling with averages of 5.0 points, 3.5 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 21.5 minutes.
Hayes (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics.
Hayes suffered the injury against Golden State on Tuesday. He's been able to go through workouts but hasn't felt good enough one way or another for a ruling on his availability for Friday. If he's out, more minutes could be in store for Derrick Rose, Delon Wright and Svi Mykhailiuk.
Hayes (ankle) went through workouts Thursday but remains day-to-day, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Hayes left Tuesday's game against the Warriors with a sprained right ankle. It's certainly a positive that he's able to work out on that ankle just two days later, but it remains unclear whether or not he'll play Friday against the Celtics.
Hayes won't return to Tuesday's contest against Golden State due to a right ankle sprain, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.
The rookie, who was struggling against the Warriors' defense, left early after coming down with a sprained right ankle. After further evaluation, the Pistons will keep their starting point guard on the sidelines. Hayes will likely be deemed questionable for the Pistons' next matchup against the Celtics on New Year's Day.
Hayes had just three points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3PT, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in Saturday's double-overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Through two games, Hayes has totaled only 10 points, four rebounds and five assists, but more concerning for fantasy managers is the fact that he's played just 19 and 21 minutes, respectively, in the two contests. Long-term, Hayes has plenty of upside, but it's been a frustrating start to the season for those who expected the rookie to step into a larger role right away.
