Should he play tonight?

Tonight the Utah Jazz will host the Phoenix Suns. Utah is in the playoff hunt and Phoenix is not. But that's not to say that the Suns have totally set on this 2015-2016 season. After all, they won their last game and are playing better overall. They are getting some good minutes from Brandon Knight, who has finally returned from injury. It still doesn't make up for missing Eric Bledsoe and T.J. Warren. One big question for Utah tonight will be what do they do with Gordon Hayward. Hayward has been playing with plantar fasciitis for a few games now, but was held out of their last game, a victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and missed shoot around and practice since then. The Jazz are listing him as Day-to-day right now, and the gambling websites are suggesting that he's questionable.

Phoenix is 18 and 49 this season, and 6-27 on the road. The Jazz have won both games against them this season so far (110-89 and 98-89), but need to win the next two games and sweep the season series if they want to make the playoffs. (Every win matters.)

So do you play Gordon Hayward tonight, or just expect that Derrick Favors, Rodney Hood, Rudy Gobert, Shelvin Mack and company can get it done without him?

EDIT: He Out!
