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.

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.
Jan 2 - 10:25 PM

Gordon Hayward hit 10-of-17 shots, 3-of-6 3-pointers and 8-of-9 free throws for 31 points, nine rebounds, three assists and a block in 34 minutes of Tuesday's 102-100 win over the Lakers.

Hayward had a finger injury that was bugging him earlier this month, but he's back, scoring at least 22 points in four of his last five games. He's averaging 22 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers on 46 percent shooting over his last five games, which includes a 2-of-10, 6-point effort on Dec. 20. He's primed for a huge second half, as long as he keeps his tender finger out of danger going forward.

Gordon Hayward struggled during Tuesday's blowout loss to the Warriors, going 2-of-10 from the field on his way to six points, three boards, two assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

Hayward just never really got going, and with the game being a blowout he took an early seat on the bench. The Dubs can have this effect on opposing small forwards, but owners can expect a bounce-back performance with a much more favorable matchup against the Kings on Wednesday.

Gordon Hayward filled up the boxscore during Sunday's road win in Memphis with 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, three blocks and two steals.

The Jazz have won 11 of their last 13 games, including their past four, and Hayward's play as a go-to scorer is a big part of the success. He survived a recent injury scare that cost him one game, and his broken left ring finger hasn't affected his play, resulting in a steal for owners who rolled the dice on draft day.

Gordon Hayward said his free agency decision will depend on where he can compete for a title.

"Where I live -- that doesn't affect me," Hayward said. "The limelight doesn't matter to me. I just want to make a run at it." Hayward did say he thinks the Jazz can do damage in the postseason, so Utah could be the right spot for him. He'll be hitting the open market this summer and should get paid at age 26. Hayward really played well with 20 points in each of his last 10 games on fantastic efficiency. Keep him rolling.

Gordon Hayward (finger) returned from a one-game absence and scored 26 points in Saturday's 104-84 win over the Kings.

Based on how he looked Saturday, it's not out of the question that the Jazz may have just rested him against the Warriors on Thursday. Hayward was phenomenal, hitting 9-of-19 shots with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, three triples and three turnovers in 32 minutes. He's scored 22+ points in ten straight games and the Jazz are off until Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder, meaning his finger should be close to 100 percent if it isn't already.

Gordon Hayward (finger) will play Saturday vs. the Kings.

Hayward sat out Thursday's game against the Warriors after aggravating his finger injury on Tuesday. However, Hayward will be back in the saddle on Saturday and has been able to play well despite dealing with the nagging injury all season. He is currently averaging career-highs in points (23.1) and rebounds (6.4), in addition to 3.9 assists, 1.7 3-pointers, and 1.1 steals. Make sure he is back in your starting lineup.

Gordon Hayward (finger) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the Kings.

He missed Thursday's game vs. the Warriors, but you have to wonder if the Jazz simply wanted to rest him against arguably the top team in the league right now. Rodney Hood (hamstring) is questionable and George Hill (toe) is out, so Hayward is going to be a strong play in all formats Saturday.

Gordon Hayward (finger) will not play on Thursday vs. the Warriors.

This is a tough blow for a Jazz team that also ruled out Rodney Hood (hamstring) and George Hill (toe) for Thursday, not to mention Derrick Favors (knee). Hayward broke his finger during the preseason and missed the first six games of the campaign, and he aggravated it on Tuesday vs. the Suns -- he played through the injury after he had it re-taped. X-rays were negative, so luckily he's day-to-day. Several players will have to step up, but Joe Johnson and Shelvin Mack look like the best short-term adds in standard leagues. Daily Slant: With Hayward, Hill, Hood and Favors off the floor this season, Shelvin Mack leads the team in usage at a 27.9% clip (73 minutes) with Joe Johnson right behind him at 27.4% (50 minutes). Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw also own usage rates over 25% with the big four off the floor, so this Utah side provides us with plenty of potential value.

Gordon Hayward scored 28 points on 8-of-16 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Suns.

He briefly checked out of the game and went back to the locker room with an apparent finger injury (the same one he had surgery on), but we later learned that he simply had it re-taped. Hayward added five rebounds, four assists, three steals and two triples in the win, and he's now scored 22+ points in nine straight games. The Jazz will try to get their fourth straight win against the Warriors on Thursday.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 11:55:00 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 23 points on 7-of-16 shooting in a 107-101 win over the Lakers on Monday.

The Jazz have won six out of their last eight games and Hayward has scored 22 or more points in each of those. He added six rebounds, five assists, two steals and three triples in 36 minutes Monday, but his value could take a small hit if George Hill (toe) is able to return on Tuesday to face the Suns.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 01:35:00 AM

Gordon Hayward hit 9-of-18 shots, three 3-pointers and 11-of-11 free throws to match his season high of 32 points with four rebounds and two steals in Saturday's win over the Nuggets.

Hayward has scored 32, 32 and 31 points in his last three games and is averaging 28.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 51 percent shooting over his last five. His finger injury appears to finally be fully behind him and he's rolling.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 12:29:00 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 32 points with seven assists, three rebounds, and two steals in Thursday’s loss to the Heat.

Hayward hit a season-high in points and has now scored over 30 points in two consecutive games, while scoring more than 20 points in six straight games. He is shooting the ball well recently and maintains a healthy usage rate of 28.3 percent. He is also contributing in assists, rebounds, and 3-pointers. His next game is against the Nuggets who play at the fifth highest pace in the league.
