  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Bumping up minutes limit

    Coach Steve Clifford said Hayward's minutes limit will be increased Sunday against the Magic, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Hayward has averaged 25.4 minutes in seven games since he returned from the hamstring injury that sidelined him for eight contests, but he should see an uptick in minutes going forward. The 32-year-old averaged 32.6 minutes this season prior to that injury, and he's nearing a return to his full workload.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Scores 12 against Detroit

    Hayward had 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Friday's 118-112 loss to the Pistons.

    Unlike in Charlotte's most recent back-to-back, Hayward played in both games of this set, which is an indication that he's getting close to 100 percent. With the Hornets sitting in 14th place in the Eastern Conference, it's possible that Hayward could be involved in trade talks leading up to the deadline. A move away from Charlotte to a contender could see Hayward's usage take a hit.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Perfect in 20-point performance

    Hayward amassed 20 points (7-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes during Sunday's 122-117 victory over the Heat.

    Hayward shot a perfect mark from the field, three-point range and the free-throw line in Sunday's win while finishing as one of three Hornets players to score 20 or more points. Hayward, who posted his highest point total since scoring 20 points Nov. 11, has scored at least 20 points on six occasions this year.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Posts solid all-around showing

    Hayward ended Thursday's 111-96 victory over the Bulls with 17 points (6-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), one rebound, three assists, one block and two steals in 25 minutes.

    Hayward failed to knock down a shot from beyond the arc, but he managed to hit 60.0 percent of his attempts from inside the three-point line. The Hornets will likely continue to monitor Hayward closely to ensure he doesn't aggravate the hamstring injury that's forced him to miss nine of his squad's last 12 games. However, he seems to have escaped Thursday's clash without any setbacks.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Good to go Thursday

    Hayward (hamstring) will play in Thursday's game against Chicago.

    As usual, Hayward's status essentially has to be handled on a game-to-game basis, but he'll return to action Thursday after missing Tuesday's loss to the Suns. This will be the veteran's 13th appearance since Thanksgiving, having missed 18 games during that stretch. Over his last 12 contests, Hayward is posting 10.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steals per game.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Listed as questionable

    Hayward (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Bulls.

    Hayward sat out Tuesday's contest, the second night of a back-to-back set, to manage a left hamstring strain that already cost him eight games. On the surface, it looked like his absence was merely a rest day, and the veteran forward would be back in the mix against Chicago, but it appears the Hornets will take things one day at a time. Fantasy managers may have to wait until just before Thursday's 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff before getting Hayward's official availability for the contest.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out Tuesday

    Hayward (hamstring) is out Tuesday against the Suns, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward will take off the second night of the back-to-back set to manage his hamstring strain. He's appeared in two games since his return from an eight-game absence, but the Hornets will play it safe. In his absence, more minutes could be available for JT Thor, Bryce McGowens and Jalen McDaniels.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Looks good in return Saturday

    Hayward (hamstring) ended with nine points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's 122-118 win over Atlanta.

    Hayward was plugged back into the starting lineup in his return from an eight-game absences. Though he was on a minute restriction, Hayward still managed to put together a serviceable two-way performance. Now that he's healthy again, Hayward likely warrants at least a cursory pickup in every 12-team league where he's available, given that LaMelo Ball (ankle/wrist) sat out Saturday and could be at risk of missing additional games. Terry Rozier, P.J. Washington and Hayward will likely be the primary players tasked with shouldering Ball's scoring and playmaking responsibilities.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Will play Saturday

    Hayward (hamstring) will play Saturday against the Hawks, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Hayward's return from an eight-game absence is good timing for the Hornets, who are down LaMelo Ball (ankle, wrist). Whether Hayward starts or comes off the bench, he should step into an increased playmaking role during the point guard's absence.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Upgraded to probable

    Hayward (hamstring) is likely to play in Saturday's game against Atlanta.

    Hayward is slated to return from an eight-game absence due to left hamstring soreness Saturday. His return comes at an opportune time for Charlotte, considering LaMelo Ball (ankle) and Cody Martin (knee) are doubtful and Kelly Oubre (hand) remains sidelined for the contest. Hayward's availability for action would likely deprive Jalen McDaniels and Bryce McGowens of some of their minutes. However, Hayward's minutes could be monitored following the lengthy layoff, so his workload may not initially eat too far into his teammates' opportunities.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Not playing Wednesday

    Hayward (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward's absence doesn't come as a surprise considering his doubtful tag, and he'll officially extend his streak of missed games to eight due to a lingering left hamstring injury. His leave has allowed for Jalen McDaniels to remain in the starting lineup and should open up more opportunities for Bryce McGowens and JT Thor on Wednesday. Hayward's next chance to suit up will come Saturday against the Hawks.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Doubtful to suit up Wednesday

    Hayward (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game versus the Rockets.

    Hayward has consistently received a doubtful designation while subsequently sitting out the contest. There is no reason to believe that will change Wednesday, making Saturday in Atlanta his next opportunity to take the floor. Jalen McDaniels should draw another start in Hayward's absence, barring an upgrade in his status over the next 24 hours.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out again

    Hayward (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Celtics.

    Hayward was initially listed as doubtful due to a lingering hamstring injury, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out for a seventh straight contest. Cody Martin (knee) and Kelly Oubre (hand) are also sidelined, so Jalen McDaniels figures to draw another start and have an expanded role against Boston. Hayward's next chance to suit up will come Wednesday in Houston.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out Thursday

    Hayward (hamstring) is out Thursday against the Raptors, and coach Steve Clifford noted that the forward is "closer [to returning]...hopefully somewhere in this next week or so," Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Hayward will miss a fifth straight game Thursday. Fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if he sits out Saturday against the Celtics, too, but the Hornets will likely continue taking his status game by game.
