Hornets' Gordon Hayward Out With Broken Finger

And just like that, Gordon Hayward hits the injury report. The Charlotte Hornets forward has suffered a fracture on his pinky finger of his shooting hand.

At this point it's hard to say how long Hayward will be out for, but no doubt this is not the start the Hornets were looking for when they gave Hayward the bag before the season. 

Hayward is expected to be the #1 option in Charlotte and is looking to move on from the Boston Celtics, where Hayward fell down the depth chart quickly due to a number of things, including his injury problems.
