Charlotte Hornets star Gordon Hayward’s wife is unhappy with the way her husband’s recent injury has been handled.
Robyn Hayward took to Instagram over the weekend to say her husband, who was on the absentee list for Friday’s game with a bruised left shoulder, actually has a more serious injury than he does. says the official report.
Robyn Hayward said her husband had a “fractured shoulder blade” which the team allowed him to play in his last game “even though he couldn’t lift his arm”.
“Just to clarify – since the team doesn’t say so. It’s a broken shoulder. Which is a broken bone,” she wrote. “I’m done with them not protecting players. I was just talking with a young player’s mother and she was saying the same thing.”
It should be noted that Hayward clarified his statements with a new Instagram story on Sunday.
“I was frustrated with the injury report and the response to it,” she said. “I’m sorry that came across as negative. That’s not how I feel about the organization at all. I just wanted everyone to know why Gordon wasn’t playing.”
Hayward is officially “week to week” with his broken shoulder blade. The veteran winger is averaging 16.3 points, 4.4 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game this season.
