Rodney Hood    F  Jazz

 

 

Hood collected 15 points (four assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 loss to Chicago. Hood returned from a seven-game absence, playing 25 minutes off the bench. He is likely to continue coming off the bench with Donovan Mitchell playing so well in the starting lineup, but this could even increase Hood's value. He will be the number one option in the second unit and should see close to 30 minutes a night. He holds value in most league formats and should be owned.

Rodney Hood (left ankle) returned on Wednesday with 15 points (5-of-12 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three 3-pointers, four assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench. Hood hadn't played since Nov. 25, a span of seven games, and the Jazz wisely had him on a minute-limit tonight. That should slowly increase over Utah's next few games, but he's unlikely to get huge playing time even at full strength -- after all, he came in averaging just 28.3 minutes per game this season. He picked up right where he left off tonight, and it can't hurt to double-check that he's not on any waiver wires.

Hood (ankle) believes he'll be on a minutes restriction for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, but is unsure about the actual minute count, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Hood will be returning Wednesday from a seven-game absence due to ankle soreness. With his return, Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks could both see downticks in workload, though the shift likely won't be too dramatic in this first game back considering Hood will probably be limited. More information on the minutes restriction may emerge closer to tipoff, but the situation certainly makes Hood a risky DFS play.

Hood (ankle) will play during Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Hood has missed seven consecutive contests due to left ankle soreness, but has progressed enough in his recovery to take the floor Wednesday. It's unclear at the moment if he'll be under a minutes restriction. That information will likely come after Wednesday's morning shootaround. As a result of Hood's return, Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks could see downticks in workload. But, both have exceeded expectation in Hood's absence, so they may have earned themselves more playing time than they were garnering before. The Jazz's backcourt minutes are certainly worth monitoring in all formats.

Rodney Hood (sore left ankle) will play Wednesday vs. the Bulls. Finally. Hood has spent the past seven games on the sidelines, but the Jazz will get their leading scorer back in action on Wednesday night. He could be somewhat limited after spending the past two weeks on the shelf, but once he's fully up to speed, he might take away minutes from Alec Burks and Thabo Sefolosha.

Hood (ankle) went through a non-contact practice Monday, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Hood has missed seven straight games while dealing with left ankle soreness, but finally appears to be nearing the end of his recovery. While it's certainly encouraging that he's progressed to non-contact work, Hood will still likely need to be upgraded to a full participant at practice Tuesday in order to get the green light to play Wednesday against the Bulls. That said, another update is expected to be provided following Tuesday's practice, which should give us a better indication for whether or not Hood will be cleared.

Rodney Hood (sore left ankle) is targeting a return to the court for Wednesday's game in Chicago. Hood has missed seven straight games with a sore ankle, so it's about time he gets back to the court. He may be brought along slowly after a two-week absence, but it'll be interesting to see how he impacts Alec Burks minutes once he's fully up to speed. Expect to get more than a few updates on Hood leading up to Wednesday's tip.

Hood (ankle) won't play during Saturday's game against the Bucks, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. As expected, Hood will miss his seventh straight game Saturday as he continues to work back from left ankle soreness. In his stead, Alec Burks and Donovan Mitchell will seemingly continue to pick up the slack.

Rodney Hood (ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Bucks. Hood is reportedly inching closer to a return, but this will be the seventh straight game he has missed since spraining his ankle last month. Alec Burks has been the biggest beneficiary in Hood's absence. Burks is averaging 20.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.2 treys over Utah's last six contests.
