Let's hope Hayward's sore foot is simply the result of more minutes and aggressive play
Brad Stevens tells reporters in Dallas that Gordon Hayward’s foot has bothered him since before hand injury. Said he got an MRI three weeks ago that showed no structural damage. Hayward got a cortisone shot recently but it has not responded. Hayward will get another MRI Friday.— Chris Forsberg (@ChrisForsberg_) December 19, 2019
Here's hoping tomorrow's MRI once again shows no physical damage, indicating that what Gordon is experiencing is simply the result of increased playing time over last season and his increased intensity on the court. He logged 25.9 minutes per game last season, and in 11 games thus far this year he is up to 30.6 MPG. Add in the fact he has been taking it to the hoop with more authority this season and racking up more dunks, and we hope that is the basis of the soreness. Stay with us for updates on his condition.
