According to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.
His owners probably saw this coming because Hayward wasn't able to go through the morning shootaround. The Jazz do have three more games this week, so hopefully he'll be able to give it a go on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Joe Ingles will likely start in Hayward's place and is a decent streaming option if you need assists, steals and triples. Mar 27 - 8:48 PM

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround.

To be clear, he remains questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. This means he will likely test out his quad in pre-game warmups. X-rays were negative and it shouldn't be a long-term issue, and Hayward does have a lot of incentive to play since the Jazz currently hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed. If he can't go, Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option in his absence.

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

X-rays were negative and coach Quin Snyder said that Hayward was "fine" after the injury occurred on Saturday, but Hayward did ask to check out of the game. Utah holds a slim one-game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed, so Hayward will do everything he can to stay on the court, but owners should check for updates following shootaround.
Mar 26 - 8:48 PM

Gordon Hayward has been diagnosed with a left quadriceps contusion suffered during the fourth quarter on Saturday.

X-rays were negative, so he didn't suffer a fracture due to the contact from Austin Rivers. Hayward did return from this injury, but he asked out for a second time. Coach Quin Snyder also said Hayward is "fine" from this injury, so most signs point to him being ready for Monday.

Coach Quin Snyder said he thinks Gordon Hayward is "fine" after bruising his left leg.

The coach added Hayward's injury wasn't to his knee joint and it was to a muscle in his leg. Hayward was not available to comment after the game, but the Jazz said that's their standard procedure for an injured player. For now, Hayward sounds like he'll be ready to roll for Monday against the Pelicans.

Gordon Hayward had left knee soreness in the fourth quarter against the Clippers on Saturday, finishing with 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He banged knees with Austin Rivers and came out of the game on the next possession. After about two minutes on the bench, Hayward did return to action for two minutes and even hit a trey in that time, but he asked out of the game after that and did not return. Hayward had a big ice pack on his left knee and went to the locker room before the game was completed. It didn't look bad and hopefully he'll be ready to play against the Pelicans on Monday to start his four-game week.
Mar 25 - 5:58 PM

Gordon Hayward couldn't find the range on Wednesday, making 6-of-17 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs to finish with 19 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

In Utah's previous three games, Hayward was tasked with defending LeBron James, Jimmy Butler and Paul George, so he may have just run out of energy tonight. The Jazz don't play again until Saturday, which is bad if you're relying on him for immediate value, but at least it'll give him a chance to recharge his batteries.
Mar 23 - 2:00 AM

Gordon Hayward scored a career-high 38 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, a blocked shot and three 3-pointers in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana.

It was likely extra special for Hayward since he spent his college days in Indy playing for the Butler Bulldogs. He was on point, connecting on 16 of his 24 field goal attempts. He now has at least one 3-pointer in all 11 games in March, and 22 straight outings dating back to Jan. 28.
Mar 20 - 9:31 PM

Gordon Hayward made 5-of-16 from the field for 14 points with six rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Bulls on Saturday.

He's surprisingly failed to hit 15 points in three of his last five games while his averages in boards, assists, field goal percentage and free throw percentage are down in that span. All three of those bad games were on the road, and that has been a trend for Hayward with his field goal percentage four percentage points worse away from Utah. Two of his three games next week are on the road, but one of those is in Indiana for the Butler product.
Mar 18 - 11:39 PM

Gordon Hayward hit just 4-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, five boards, four assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Thursday's 91-83 loss to the Cavaliers.

He'd scored 25 and 27 points in his previous two games but had a nine-point dud last Saturday. Hayward's having a fine season but has had trouble putting together long streaks of great games all year. It's not easy to play against LeBron James and he should have a better matchup against the Bulls on Saturday.
Mar 16 - 9:28 PM

Gordon Hayward had 25 points, nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes on Wednesday, helping Utah beat the Pistons in Detroit.

The Jazz have won nine of their last 12 games, helping them stave off the Clippers for the No. 4 seed out West. Hayward has been good but not great since the break, and it wouldn't hurt to see more assists (3.4), steals (0.9) and blocks (0.2).
Mar 16 - 12:27 AM

Gordon Hayward finished with 27 points while hitting nine of his 18 field-goal attempts in Monday's win against the Clippers.

Hayward posted four 3-pointers to give him at least one triple in 10 consecutive outings. It was a nice bounce back after his worst performance since the last All-Star break last time out. As mentioned, there is no reason to worry when he occasionally has a poor game. He remains a must-start in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 14 - 12:41 AM

Gordon Hayward scored nine points with three rebounds, one steal and one steal and one 3-pointer in just 21 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

It's his worst game since the break and the fewest minutes he's played all season. Hayward actually hasn't been off to a great start in March, averaging 18.8 points, 5.4 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys in his previous games before this dud. There's no reason to worry here and he should be big time this week with four games.
Mar 11 - 5:50 PM

Gordon Hayward finished with 23 points, five rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes Sunday against the Kings.

Hayward combined for 25 points in his first two games in the month of March, so hopefully this solid shooting night gets him going again. He is working on a streak of 14 games in a row with a 3-pointer dating back to Jan. 28. Hayward faces another favorable matchup Monday when the Pelicans (106.5 points per game allowed) pay a visit to SLC.
Mar 5 - 9:45 PM

Gordon Hayward lit up the Wizards for a game-high 30 points on Sunday, making 11-of-22 field goals with four 3-pointers, nine rebounds and two assists.

Hayward went just 4-of-8 at the line tonight, unusual for him, but his owners will happily overlook that small defect. He's exceeding expectations this season, averaging career-high numbers in multiple categories, and fantasy owners are reaping top-20 value over the past month.
