Hayward (collarbone) posted 24 points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 32 minutes of action Friday against the Nuggets.

Hayward is returning from a two-game absence, and it's encouraging to see him play solid in his return. He's been excellent this season, averaging 19.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.4 steals per game, and should continue to produce well as long as he's healthy.

Hayward (collarbone) went through shootaround Friday and said he feels "a lot better," Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Hayward was considered probable coming in after missing the Jazz's last two games. Jones is reporting that Hayward will almost certainly play Friday, so look for him to return to the starting lineup, barring a setback in warmups.

Hayward (collarbone) is listed as probable for Friday's game at Denver.

Hayward's Grade 1 AC sprain in his left shoulder will seemingly contain him to two DNPs, but such an injury should be monitored closely until he displays an ability to play through the concern. No matter, he'll likely hold down his typical spot at small forward Friday.

Hayward (collarbone) will be held out of Wednesday's game against Portland, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Hayward has a Grade 1 left AC sprain, and he'll sit out a second straight game after being sidelined Monday versus Minnesota. With Rodney Hood also out, Elijah Millsap will get the start at small forward, while Joe Ingles will see additional time off the bench.

Hayward (collarbone) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against Portland.

Hayward is officially dealing with a left AC sprain and already missed Sunday's game against the Timberwolves. If he's unable to play Wednesday then Joe Ingles will likely take on a larger role against Portland, especially since rookie Rodney Hood (illness) is also considered doubtful.

Hayward (shoulder) did not practice Tuesday, Aaron Falk of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Hawyard is dealing with a Grade 1 left AC sprain, which held him out of Monday's game against the Timberwolves. He seems to be in danger of missing Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, after being considered questionable for Monday's contest. If Hayward cannot suit up, there will be more minutes and shot opportunities available for Rodney Hood (illness), Elijah Millsap, Joe Ingles and Trey Burke. In the event both Hayward and Hood are unable to play, Ingles and Millsap would likely both top 30 minutes.

Hayward (collarbone) won't suit up Monday against the Timberwolves.

Hayward's Grade 1 left AC sprain will keep him in street clothes for at least one game. His next opportunity to take the court arrives Wednesday against the Blazers, for which he should be considered questionable.

Hayward (collarbone) missed morning shootaround Monday and is still considered questionable for the team's contest against the Timberwolves later in the day, Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

It remains a bit unclear when the injury occurred, but Hayward appears to be a game-time call for the contest. With the Jazz already out of the playoff chase, it wouldn't be surprising if the sit their star for precautionary reasons, but he still appears to be day-to-day at this point and hasn't completely been ruled out. An updated status should come at some point closer to the opening tip-off.

Hayward has a Grade 1 left AC sprain and is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Timberwolves.

Hayward's status should be updated following Monday's morning shootaround. The Jazz are already out of the playoff race so it would be surprising if coach Quin Snyder urged Hayward to play through whatever pain he's dealing with when the organization has a lot of vested interest in the 24-year-old. Either way, he should be considered a game-time decision until the Jazz say otherwise.
