Can you cut 4 o’clocks back when they get too heavy

We had a good rain storm and it bent my 4 o’clocks to the ground. I’m wondering if I should cut them back or would the heat kill them? I propped them for now.

If they are just bent, not broken they just stand back up on their own in a week or so. The article below advises not propping them up as it might cause more damage.
