Rod Boone @rodboone
Gordon Hayward is questionable for tonight’s game against the Pacers. #Hornets have obviously missed him in the last 2 games. – 11:35 AM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Sounds like James Bouknight could potentially be in the mix to be included in the rotation for the second straight game. He saw time in Sunday’s loss to Atlanta with Gordon Hayward out. – 5:44 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Gordon Hayward is out for tonight’s game against Toronto. Will be the second straight game he’s missed. – 5:26 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Gordon Hayward (right foot discomfort) is listed as questionable for tomorrow’s game against Toronto. James Borrego said earlier today they were hopeful he’d play tomorrow. Hayward was held out of their light workout prior to the #Hornets leaving for Toronto this afternoon. – 4:01 PM

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Last night showed why I’ve always considered Gordon Hayward to be Charlotte’s best player. Without him, they have nobody to cut opponent runs short. That’s an especially important quality on a team this limited defensively. – 12:53 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
If the Hayward absence was just “Rest” you would think it would have been done on the OKC game not against division and playoff rivals the Hawks. Still, expect them to be cautious, hopefully it’s nothing bigger – 6:57 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Cody Martin is starting in Gordon Hayward’s place. – 6:39 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
James Borrego said Gordon Hayward is just experiencing some soreness and it’s nothing to get overly concerned about.
“He’s done well this year and I don’t want to push the limits here.”
He mentioned JT Thor and James Bouknight as possible rotation options tonight. pic.twitter.com/HLNuie4dsH5:47 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
Looks like we are about to see some of the young guys with McDaniels & Hayward out tonight. Bouknight/Thor most likely to get some extended run, maybe some Kai at the 4 – 5:33 PM
