The Charlotte Hornets will be without forward Gordon Hayward for an extended period of time. He has been diagnosed with a fractured left shoulder.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said that the injury is week-to-week. However, he has been battling this injury for some time.

According to his wife Robyn, Hayward is dealing with a fractured scapula. He played through the injury on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.

“He actually has a fractured scapula,” Robyn Hayward said on her Instagram story. “That they had him play with last game that’s why he couldn’t move his arm up in the last game. Everyone who knows Gordon knows he has one goal and that’s to win and play the right way. He’s the most truthful player/person you’d find. If he’s not gonna play, it’s for something more than a bruise.

“I’m gonna stop there and not get into prior things.”

Hayward allegedly scored seven points with the injury against the 76ers. He played in 28 minutes and 34 seconds in the win.

When Hayward played against the 76ers, it was his third game back.

According to the team, he was out with a bruised left shoulder on November 4th. He missed eight games from November 4th through November 16th with the injury.

In the three games back, he played 108 minutes with the injury before being shut down.
