Gordon Hayward (hand) expected back for Hornets Wednesday

Charlotte Hornets small forward Gordon Hayward (right hand contusion) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

What It Means:

Hayward is now on track to return from his two-game absence after previously being listed as questionable. Cody Martin will likely move back with the second unit Wednesday and Malik Monk may not have as much opportunity off the bench. There's also potential downticks in usage for Jalen McDaniels, LaMelo Ball, and P.J. Washington.

numberFire’s models project Hayward for 35.3 FanDuel points versus the Timberwolves and he has a salary of $7,100 on Wednesday’s 10-game slate. Per our NBA Heat Map, the Hornets have the fourth-highest implied total (116.8 points) among the 20 teams playing Wednesday.
