Gordon Hayward hit 8-of-16 shots, three 3-pointers and 112-of-13 free throws for a season-high 31 points, five rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.

Hayward got off to a slow start tonight, but came on late to post one of his best lines of the season. He's rolling, averaging 25.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 48 percent shooting over his last five games. He's also been very consistent, scoring between 22 and 31 points in each of his last five. His finger injury is obviously no longer a concern.
Nov 30 - 12:14 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 24 points on 6-of-14 shooting against the Wolves on Monday.

He added five rebounds, two assists, two steals and zero turnovers in 34 minutes. Hayward also got to the free throw line 15 times, connecting on 12 of them. He's scored 22 or more points in each of his last four games and has made a total of 30 free throws in that span.
Nov 29 - 12:11 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 24 points against the Hawks on Friday with seven rebounds, two steals, one block, one triple and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

He was very efficient, shooting 8-of-14 from the field and hitting all seven of his free throws. Hayward was in a bit of a mini-slump last week, but he's since scored 22 or more points in his last three games and is averaging 23.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.7 treys in that span.
Nov 25 - 11:38 PM

Gordon Hayward hit 9-of-21 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs to finish Sunday's road loss with 25 points, seven boards, two assists and two 3-pointers.

Hayward shot a mere 13-of-46 from the field in Utah's previous three games, averaging 10.0 points in that span, but he got back on track tonight. He had scored 20+ points in five straight games after returning from his injury and there have been no reports of a setback, so owners should shrug off his recent struggles. He's on pace to return top-50 value, at worst.
Nov 21 - 12:29 AM

Gordon Hayward made 4-of-13 from the field and didn't make his only attempt from the line for nine points on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer.

His body language on the court shows he is struggling. Hayward is fighting off a sore left ring finger and it's possible it's affecting his shot. He hasn't hit 31 percent from the field in any of his last three games. He'll have to deal with that and the altitude in Denver on Saturday. He won't be as great as he was to start his season, but Hayward should be able to flirt with top-40 value.
Nov 19 - 8:17 PM

Gordon Hayward is dealing with frequent pain in his left ring finger, but plans to play through the pain.

Hayward broke the finger during the preseason, causing him to miss the first six games of the regular season. "It's one of those things where it hurts for a couple of minutes, throbs pretty good, but then it calms down and goes away," Hayward said. "It's something I've got to deal with. I think it's slowly getting better, but it's one of those things that when you keep hitting it, it's going to make it take longer. I want to be out there, though, so it's something I've got to play through." Hayward has played very well since returning, averaging 20.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists.

Gordon Hayward made 3-of-15 from the field for eight points during an 86-77 loss to the Bulls on Thursday, adding 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers.

He went up for a two-handed dunk and was in some pain due to his left finger, which also bothered him in his previous game. After he shook it off, he stayed in the game. Hayward missed the first six games of the season due to his left ring finger fracture, but he's hit the ground running with 36 minutes per game this season and there's no need to worry here. Hayward is missing his jumpers lately to pull him down to just 40.3 percent from the field on the year, but he's still dominating around the basket. This dud knocked him down to fourth-round per game value on the year.
Nov 18 - 1:29 AM

Gordon Hayward (finger) scored 13 points on 4-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and one triple in Monday's 102-96 loss to the Grizzlies.

It was his worst game of the season and it came when the Jazz needed him the most with Rodney Hood (illness) and George Hill (thumb) out, not to mention Derrick Favors leaving the game early with left knee soreness. Hayward gave fantasy owners a scare when he briefly went back to the locker room with a hand issue, but he simply had his fingers re-taped and quickly returned. He scored 20 or more points in his previous five games, so there's no reason to panic.
Nov 14 - 11:49 PM

Gordon Hayward banged his hand and had his fingers re-taped in the locker room during the third quarter of Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

He's struggling tonight, hitting just 3-of-11 shots for seven points thus far. Hopefully he comes back in the fourth quarter and turns things around.
Nov 14 - 10:55 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 25 points during a 102-91 win over the Heat on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

The Muscle Watch Hayward is looking at more minutes at the four while Favors is down, but it doesn't really matter. Hayward is off to a wonderful start this season, averaging 24.4 points, 7.6 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 1.6 treys and 2.4 turnovers. The Jazz are 4-1 with Hayward with all five coming on the road and four of them without George Hill (thumb). Utah was also third in net rating in the last five games (Warriors, Clippers). They're good.
Nov 13 - 1:06 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points against the Magic during an 87-74 win on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He looks like he's taken another step. Hayward is sitting on averages of 24.3 points, 7.3 boards, 4.3 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.8 treys. Hayward also hasn't missed from the line on his 28 attempts in those four games. It'll be interesting to see how he and George Hill (thumb) fit, but Hayward looks like he's going to be a stud this season.
Nov 12 - 12:13 AM

Gordon Hayward posted a well-rounded line in 36 minutes vs. the Hornets, scoring 29 points (10-of-19 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

Hayward hasn't missed a beat since returning from his finger injury, to the delight of owners who drafted him at a discount. He's had a minimum of 20 points and five rebounds in three straight games, and is on pace to match last year's top-40 value.
Nov 9 - 9:51 PM

Gordon Hayward hit 9-of-17 shots for 20 points, seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in Monday's win over the Sixers.

Nice. He had 29 points and a solid line in Sunday's debut and he should be back in all fantasy lineups until further notice. His finger injury sure looks like it's behind the young phenom.
Nov 7 - 10:12 PM

Gordon Hayward was excellent in his regular-season debut on Sunday, scoring a team-high 28 points on 6-of-17 shooting to go with five boards, two 3-pointers and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

Hayward looked great out there, leading the Jazz in scoring and posting a usage rate of 34.8. He also was a perfect 14-of-14 from the charity stripe, which set a new career-high for him in free throws made without a miss. He’s obviously not going to have any sort of restriction on his minutes, and he’ll shoot a much higher percentage from the field on most nights, so he shouldn’t have any trouble producing top-50 value this season as the main man in Utah.
