Date:

Gordon Hayward (illness) was quiet in Tuesday's home victory, hitting 4-of-12 shots to finish with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

He was 1-of-7 from downtown and turned the ball over four times, and never seemed in rhythm after being slowed by an illness for the past few days. Hayward was on fire to start the season and he's embracing his go-to status with the Jazz, so fantasy owners shouldn't be soured by a couple of poor games.

Gordon Hayward is feeling better from an illness and is expected to play on Tuesday against the Thunder.

He was sick on Saturday night, but had his worst game of the season with just 12 points on 3-of-10 from the field. Hayward should be locked and loaded in all fantasy lineups.

Gordon Hayward said he's "extremely comfortable" in Quin Snyder's system.

Hayward is having a breakout season after signing a highly-criticized max contract during the offseason. Averaging 19.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 3-pointers on 48.3 percent shooting, he's been an absolute steal for owners who grabbed him in their fantasy drafts.

Gordon Hayward had an overdue dud on Saturday against the Raptors with 12 points, one rebound, five assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

He's basically been batting 1.000 with productive lines for his fantasy owners and was putting up first-round value on the year. Obviously his owners have nothing to worry about and he'll likely get it going against the Thunder on Tuesday.

Gordon Hayward scored a season-high 33 points on 11-of-18 shooting (2-of-6 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with three rebounds, six assists and four steals in Friday's win over the Knicks.

Hayward is enjoying mid-first round value and shooting a bit over his head at 50 percent from the field and 90 percent from the foul line. It's entirely possible that he takes a big jump in those areas this season, but some regression is to be expected. Still, owners should be very choosy about any sell-high offers as Hayward is going to put up big lines all year long.
Nov 15 - 12:31 AM

Gordon Hayward hit just 5-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, seven rebounds and two steals in a loss to the Hawks.

Thabo Sefoloasha was in the starting lineup for the Hawks due to a DeMarre Carroll injury and helped to stifle Hayward tonight. He came into this one on fire, and we fully expect him to pick it back up in his next game. He was due for a let down.

Gordon Hayward used Monday's away game in Indiana as an opportunity to get a haircut and pizza from his old hometown.

The Brownsburg, Indiana native used his homecoming as a chance to get back to his roots. "[They] came to me," Hayward said of his pre-game haircut from his old barber. "I got some Donatos pizza. They don't have that in Utah. That was good." Hayward poured in 30 points to go along with eight rebounds, five assists, one block, and two treys during the loss and further solidified his status as a top-25 fantasy player thus far.

Gordon Hayward returned to his college stomping grounds against the Pacers on Monday with 30 points, eight rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers on 11-of-15 from the field.

He made all six attempts from the line to put him at 35-of-36 on the season. Hayward is holding steady at five assists per game and he's obviously playing extraordinarily well in coach Quin Snyder's offense. He is turning in early first-round value in standard leagues right now and his owners have to be extremely pleased.

Gordon Hayward took control of Sunday's game down the stretch, scoring 10 straight points to help Utah steal a 97-96 comeback road win in Detroit.

He finished with 17 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and four turnovers in 39 minutes, so it wasn't his best night statistically, but he was money when it mattered. The Pistons didn't have a wing player with the speed and size to control him, and through seven games it appears Hayward is headed for a career-best season -- he came in averaging 18.0 points on 48.0 percent shooting, 2.0 triples, 6.3 boards, 5.3 assists, 0.7 steals and a mere 1.3 turnovers per game.
Nov 9 - 8:29 PM

Gordon Hayward has been a stud early on this season, as the Jazz are posting an offensive rating of 111.2 when he is on the floor, and a 95.3 when he sits.

Fresh off a huge contract over the Summer, Hayward has shown that he was worth every penny for the Jazz. So far this season he is averaging 19.2 points, 6.6 boards, 5.6 assists, and 2.0 3-pointers per game. We don't see him slowing down, and congratulations are in order if you were able to snag him in your draft. Keep him locked into all lineups.
Nov 8 - 10:00 AM

Gordon Hayward was all smiles after hitting the game-winning shot in the Jazz' 102-100 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

In addition to hitting the game-winner, Hayward scored 21 points to go with four rebounds, seven assists, and one block. "This is crazy. We did it for these guys (the fans). This is exciting," Hayward said. "We are competitors. We fight until the end. We left it all out there tonight." The fifth-year player is off to a hot start to the 2014-15 regular season and should have no problem finishing as a top-50 fantasy player.
Nov 6 - 9:36 AM

Gordon Hayward scored a team-high 27 points against the Clippers during a 107-101 loss on Monday, adding seven boards, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

That's two monster games in a row and he's also hit all of his 13 attempts at the line on the season. Hayward's added muscle has really helped him around the rim so far and he looks like he's in for a career year after collecting a max deal.
Nov 4 - 1:48 AM

Gordon Hayward dominated the Suns during Saturday's 118-91 win with 24 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's off to a wonderful start, making 46 percent from the field and 100 percent of his 11 attempts at the line. Hayward added season averages of 16.0 points, 7.3 boards, 5.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.7 triples. Clearly, coach Quin Snyder is helping this max-deal player.
Nov 2 - 2:50 AM

Gordon Hayward made 4-of-9 from the field for 16 points with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against Dallas on Thursday.

He improved from a 3-of-11 dud on Wednesday and looked a little more comfortable tonight. Hayward has 13 dimes in his two games and he's likely going to be among the league leaders for assists among the forwards.
