SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward fractured a finger on his left hand during practice Friday, the team said.
Team doctors determined the extent of the injury after an examination of Hayward at University of Utah Health Care's Orthopaedic Center on Friday afternoon.
The team said the 26-year-old Hayward will be evaluated further by the Jazz medical staff.
Entering his seventh season, Hayward has averaged 14.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists over 443 games with Utah.
The ninth-overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft led the team with a 19.7-point average last season.
