Gordon Hayward scored 29 points with four assists, three rebounds and one triple in 34 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.
He had two nasty dunks in this game including one over Giannis Antetokounmpo (link below). Hayward shot 11-of-17 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, picking up right where he left off before the All-Star break. He's been a top-25 player in standard leagues over the past month, but he gets a tough matchup with the Wizards on Sunday. Feb 25 - 12:40 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 22 points during a 111-88 win over the Blazers on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, seven assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The training staff was briefly looking at Hayward's leg, but he checked back in quickly and looked to be 100 percent. Hayward will head to New Orleans as a first-time All-Star with his team holding the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference. Hayward is coasting with third-round value in standard leagues in what has easily been his best season. He's going to get paid.
Feb 16 - 12:55 AM

Gordon Hayward was held to seven points in a blowout loss to the Clippers on Monday, shooting 2-of-12 from the field in 29 minutes.

Hayward has been held to single-digit points five times this season, but this was easily his worst game of the campaign. He added just five rebounds with one triple and didn't record any assists, steals or blocks. Hayward was averaging 29.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.7 3-pointers in February prior to tonight, so his fantasy owners should cut him some slack.
Feb 14 - 12:03 AM

Gordon Hayward scored a game-high 31 points during a 112-104 loss to the Celtics on Saturday, adding one rebound, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He got hot late and almost was able to pull off the comeback against his college coach, Brad Stevens. Hayward has been as hot as ever as a scorer with four 30-plus scoring games in his last five, averaging 29.4 points, 5.2 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.6 treys on 55.0 percent from the field. He is locked in as an early-round guy, and he's looking at a big payday this summer.
Feb 12 - 12:45 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 36 points during a 112-105 loss in overtime at Dallas on Thursday, adding four rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes.

This was a tough loss and Hayward missed a potential go-ahead shot at the end of regulation. George Hill (toe) was not out there, so that's part of the reason why Hayward blew up. On the year, Hayward's usage rate is 4.1 percent higher without Hill while his assist percentage also sees an increase. Hayward was putting up numbers with Hill anyway, so he'll continue to have a big season no matter who is next to him.
Feb 9 - 11:42 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 30 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

He's on fire again. Before his 33-point Saturday, Hayward didn't score more than 28 since Jan. 2, but now he's scored 30.0 per game in February. This could be related to Rodney Hood (knee) missing time, though. When Hood is off the floor, Hayward gets a 6.0 usage rate and a 4.8 true shooting percentages bump compared to when he's with Hayward. In other words, Hayward should continue to feast while Hood recovers from his LCL sprain.
Feb 6 - 10:41 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 33 points in Saturday's 105-98 win over the Hornets.

Hayward gets a 5.9 usage rate bump with Rodney Hood (knee) off the court and it showed tonight. He finished 13-of-20 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples in 37 minutes. This was just the second game of the week for the Jazz, but Hayward's owners can now look forward to a four-game Week 16.
Feb 5 - 1:46 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 14 points and hit 4-of-13 shots from the field in Saturday's loss to Memphis.

He really struggled to score tonight and missed all three of his triples, but salvaged his line with eight rebounds, five assists and one block in 36 minutes. The Jazz only play twice in Week 15, so Hayward, George Hill and Rudy Gobert are probably the only safe starts in weekly formats. Expect a better performance from Hayward on Wednesday vs. the Bucks.
Jan 29 - 1:26 AM

Gordon Hayward hit 7-of-14 shots for 24 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in Thursday's win over the Lakers.

Hayward snapped out of a two-game funk and has now scored at least 24 points in three of his last five games. During that stretch, he has averaged 20.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers per game. The first time All-Star gets the defensive-minded Grizzlies on Saturday, but he has scored 22 points in two of his three games against them this season. Despite his recent struggles, Hayward is nearly matchup proof, so don't hesitate to deploy him in that one.
Jan 27 - 2:51 AM

Russell Westbrook, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Marc Gasol, DeAndre Jordan and Gordon Hayward were named to the Western Conference All-Star Team.

Even though Chris Paul (thumb) is hurt, it's still quite shocking to not see him on there. Plus, Rudy Gobert clearly comes to mind as another big man to get on this roster. Hayward makes his first All-Star Team over his teammate despite playing in seven fewer games, and Gobert completely smashing on the defensive end.
Jan 26 - 7:14 PM

Gordon Hayward hit just 2-of-10 shots (both 3-pointers) for nine points, six rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes of Tuesday's 103-93 loss to the Nuggets.

The Jazz looked drained after losing to the Thunder on Monday night and Hayward never got anything going against the Nuggets. Hayward only had 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting on Monday and has hit just 28-of-75 shots over his last five games, good for just 37 percent. He had his streak of 17 straight games in double figures broken tonight, while his season low is six points. In his other single-digit scoring games this season he's bounced back with 9. 25 and 28 points, so there's a good chance he'll get back on track against the Lakers on Thursday. And the Lakers' shaky defense across the board should be just what the doctor ordered to help Hayward break out of his funk.
Jan 25 - 12:04 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 17 points in Monday's loss to the Thunder, snapping a six-game winning streak for the Jazz.

"It was a tough game for us," Hayward said. "I felt like they made the plays when they needed to and we didn't. It's a frustrating one, but it's one you have to try and let go and move on." The Jazz are one of the hottest teams in the West right now and they're still not even at full strength with Rodney Hood (knee) out. The Jazz are just one loss behind the fourth-seeded Clippers and have every reason to keep giving Hayward big minutes the rest of the way. He shot 6-of-17 from the field in the loss and added six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two triples.
Jan 24 - 1:34 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 26 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Mavs on Friday.

He did hurt his hand and the team had to call timeout to stop the game because he was in so much pain. Hayward looked fine after that, but he sure does have a lot of hand injuries this year. Hayward has been wonderful since returning from a hand injury to start the year, posting third-round value per game on the season. He also ran the offense tonight in a no-PG lineup for eight minutes.
Jan 21 - 2:50 AM

Gordon Hayward hit 10-of-12 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers and 4-of-5 free throws on his way to 28 points, nine rebounds, a steal and a block in Tuesday's win over the Cavaliers.

The Jazz simply shot the ball much better than the Cavs tonight, which is why they got the win. Hayward is rolling again, averaging 21 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.6 3-pointers on 51 percent shooting over his last five games. His thumb injury is clearly behind him.
Jan 10 - 11:54 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 30 points in Monday's 101-89 win over the Nets.

The Jazz were having a nightmare game up until the fourth quarter where they ultimately outscored the Nets 31-19. Hayward finished 9-of-18 from the field and 9-of-9 from the line, adding four rebounds, three assists, one block, two steals and three triples in 35 minutes to lead the Jazz to their fourth straight win. With George Hill (concussion) expected to miss Tuesday's game vs. Boston, Hayward should have another monster game against his former college coach, Brad Stevens.
