He was listed as doubtful for Wednesday night’s game at Minnesota, which is Utah’s last before a five-day break for All-Star Weekend.

Hayward, the Jazz’s No. 3 scorer, has missed eight games since suffering a shoulder injury in the final moments of a 114-110 overtime win over Indiana on Jan. 26.

The Jazz hope to snap a two-game losing streak against Oklahoma City, but it won’t be easy.

The Thunder are battling San Antonio for the best record in the Western Conference. They have won four straight games by an average margin of 26 points.

"They play hard every game," said Jazz forward Paul Millsap. You can see them out there competing every game. They’re hungry, [but] that’s a team you want to beat."
