Hayward isn't a flashy guy but he does pretty much everything on the basketball court for his position, successfully. Nothing maybe amazing but he is still a well rounded player and a solid leader. We NEEDED one. As long as he doesn't get hurt again the signing was a good one. We will probably still be in the lottery this year but we are building a core and he fits an important role in ours.

Now there's the Hornets we know and love.

https://www.mayoclinic.org/avulsion-fracture/expert-answers/faq-20058520

Treatment of an avulsion fracture typically includes resting and icing the affected area, followed by controlled exercises that help restore range of motion, improve muscle strength and promote bone healing. Most avulsion fractures heal very well without surgical intervention.

An avulsion fracture occurs when a small chunk of bone attached to a tendon or ligament gets pulled away from the main part of the bone.

The hip, elbow and ankle are the most common locations for avulsion fractures in the young athlete. You may need to spend a few weeks on crutches if you have an avulsion fracture around your hip. An avulsion fracture to your foot or ankle may require a cast or walking boot.

In rare cases, if the bone fragment and main bone are too far apart to fuse naturally, surgery may be necessary to reunite them. In children, avulsion fractures that involve the growth plates also might require surgery.

why are so many worried about his injury? if he out a while and we lose games so be it we be in postion to draft in the lotty in a deep draft so stop worring.

him being out is good for our draft stock and we get to see more of young players so its win win to me. we are one draft away from being back in the playoffs so if this had to happen better to happen to this year instead of next

I blame Dy, he clearly had something to do with this.

As long as he doesn't get hurt again...

*5 minutes later*

In all seriousness though, seems to be a minor injury as he's listed as day-to-day...but hopefully isn't a sign of things to come :o

the ink ain't even dry on his contract :lol: nobody should be playing defense for the guy yet

there's nothing 'good' about signing a guy to a megaton contract and seeing him listed as injured after two preseason games.

'but but but we get to lose' has nothing to do with it

U srs?

Guy with a serious injury history is already injured

A guy costing about $40mil a year

No big deal

Good thing it's not your money or your cap space

Hayward doesn't have a history of serious injuries. The only serious injury he's had was the devastating ankle one in 2017. When he broke his hand last season he didn't even miss a month and then he sprained his ankle landing on someone's foot in the first playoff game and that's something that would have happened to any player.

Pretty sure we could also be losing without the need for the albatross contract and the Batum stretch.

because any time you can splash 120 large to sign a guy so you can still lose to the worst teams in the league you simply must...

At this point, Hayward must be wondering what he's got himself into. Or if not, his wife is.

He’s played pretty darn well. Not an overpay at this point as long as he’s healthy
