Utah Jazz shooting guard Gordon Hayward says that he felt good on his return from a five-game absence with a hip muscle strain.
Gordon Hayward has said that it "felt good" to return from injury against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Utah Jazz shooting guard, who had missed the last five games with a muscle strain in his left hip, was the team's leading scorer in the 112-97 defeat last night.
The 23-year-old told reporters: "It felt good to be back out there, but we just didn't get stops tonight. They were too effective offensively."
The Jazz are back in action on Saturday against the Washington Wizards.
