• Jazz forward Hayward breaks finger


    LOS ANGELES: Utah Jazz star forward Gordon Hayward broke a finger during practice Friday (Saturday in Manila) and could be lost to the NBA team for up to six weeks. He was taken to the University of Utah Health Care Orthopaedic Center where he was diagnosed with a broken left ring finger. The injury occurred when Hayward’s hand became caught inside the jersey of a teammate, the team said. If Hayward is out six weeks, he would miss the first 13 games of the season, which starts in two weeks. The ninth overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft led the team with a 19.7-point average and 3.7 assists last season. He also averaged 5.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 2015-16.
