Gordon Hayward had a team-high 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting on Tuesday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, one block and a pair of threes in 34 minutes in a 105-116 road loss to the Rockets.
While Hayward is poor when it comes to steals and blocks production, he's solid everywhere else. The 29-year-old veteran's resurgence this season has come with career-high field goal and free throw percentages.

Gordon Hayward (foot soreness) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday afternoon and delivered 13 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes of action.
Hayward's absence seemed precautionary and nothing about his game today makes us think that he's dealing with something serious. The Celtics will always err on the side of caution with Hayward but he should be good to go for middle-round value when he's on the court.

Gordon Hayward (foot soreness) will not play on Friday against the Hawks.
Hayward's dealt with foot soreness before but fantasy GMs are hoping this is just a precautionary absence against a bad team. Grant Williams should get additional minutes tonight and he's the most appealing stream of the bunch. Semi Ojeleye could start but he won't be worth a dice roll.

Gordon Hayward (sore foot) is questionable ahead of Friday's matchup against the Celtics.
The Celtics are dealing with several injuries heading into Friday's game. If Hayward sits out, Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye are in line for additional opportunity while the former has a much higher upside.

Gordon Hayward had a clean game on Wednesday, ending with 23 poitns (10-16 FG), seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and zero turnovers.
Hayward continues an impressive 2019-2020 campaign. His ability to do a little bit of everything, and not harm you in any category has found himself inside the top-50 on the year.

Gordon Hayward (right calf contusion) will be available for Wednesday's game.
Hayward was previously considered probable. The Celtics are dealing with several injuries and Hayward should play most of the night against the Magic. He has bounced back nicely from a less than stellar 2018-19 campaign.

Gordon Hayward (right calf contusion) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.
Hayward may take on additional playmaking responsibilities with both Marcus Smart and Kemba Walker questionable for this one. Without either on Monday, Hayward put up 24 points, seven rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes of action.

Gordon Hayward helped the Celtics get by without Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart on Monday by providing 24 points on 9-of-16 shooting, seven boards, six dimes, a block and three treys in 34 minutes in a 123-115 win over the Hawks.
Hayward has been steady this season, even hovering around the back of the top-50 for much of the time. Even if the Celtics find themselves at full strength someday, Hayward looks to be healthy and reliable once again.

Gordon Hayward made just 1-of-11 shots from the field for four points with nine rebounds, two assists and one steal in a win over the Sixers on Saturday.
Hayward's poor shooting night was not injury-related and is way off his season average of .517 shooting from the field. He should bounce back quite well soon enough. Nothing to be worried about here.
January 30, 2020, 11:03 pmJayson TatumSF, Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum returned from a groin injury and filled up the stat sheet in 24 minutes on Thursday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with six boards, two dimes and a triple-one line.
Tatum was able to score efficiently even though his 3-ball wasn't falling (1-for-5 3PT) tonight. He also added defense to his line to help round things out. Jaylen Brown (18 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and two triples) also had a solid game across the board with Gordon Hayward (25 points on 8-of-15 shooting, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three triples) being the leading scorer for a Celtics team that has enough to go around for all of their talented wings.

Gordon Hayward had an efficient night on Tuesday, shooting 10-for-14 from the field and 8-for-10 from the line on his way to a line of 29 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes vs. the Heat.
Hayward was great in this one. His drafters are getting a great return on their investment, seeing as Hayward sits just inside the top-50 for the season. Look for more of the same as the second half rolls on.
January 24, 2020, 9:39 pmGordon HaywardSF, Boston Celtics
Gordon Hayward finished Friday's win with 22 points (8-for-18 shooting), 14 rebounds, five assists, three triples and a steal.
Hayward took full advantage of the Celtics missing several wing players and turned in a strong line. While the Celtics are expected to be full strength soon, Hayward will still be a good play.
January 24, 2020, 5:23 pmJaylen BrownSG, Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown (right ankle sprain) will not play on Friday against the Magic.
Brown will be on the sidelines with Jayson Tatum and Enes Kanter. The rest of the Celtics roster should be in for big nights, making Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Gordan Hayward and Daniel Theis popular targets in DFS on Friday. In particular, Brown's absence should open up increased opportunities for Hayward. Brown was originally projected to tough it out on Friday so hopefully, he's back in action soon.
