VIDEO: Gordon Hayward’s sore right foot will keep him out of the lineup against the Cavaliers
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — The Utah Jazz will have to deal with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight (10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) without their leading scorer Gordon Hayward, who will sit out the game with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
Hayward, who leads the Jazz in scoring (20.1 points per game) and assists (3.7), is listed as day-to-day and is missing his first game of the season.
The Cavaliers are playing the finale of a four-game Western Conference road trip that began last week with a win over the Sacramento Kings and weekend wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.
