Rodney Hood    F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood hit 5-of-10 shots and four more 3-pointers for 14 points, two rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes off the Cavs bench in Tuesday's 120-112 win over the Thunder. Hood's averaging 14.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 3.5 3-pointers in his two games for the Cavs, and is going to be a key spot-up shooter from deep for the new-look Cavs. He may not have many assists, steals or blocks for his new teams, but he should score and hit a ton of 3-pointers, giving him some value in most fantasy leagues.

Rodney Hood looked great in his Cleveland debut on Sunday, scoring 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with three 3-pointers, three boards, one steal, one block and one turnover in 19 minutes. Hood wasn't shy with his shot selection, jacking up five shots within his first six minutes out there, and his minutes should start to trend up as he gets more familiar with the Cavs' system. He finished the game with a 31.1 usage rate, so it looks like Tyronn Lou wants him to be a force with the second unit.

Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. will be available to make their Cavs debut Sunday vs. Boston. George Hill will also make his debut on Sunday, but will be part of the starting five. Hood, Clarkson and Nance will come off the bench vs. the Celtics. Coach Ty Lue will have to mix-and-match rotations over the next couple of weeks as he attempts to incorporate all these new players into the mix.

Rodney Hood and George Hill will not play Friday against the Hawks. They are waiting for Iman Shumpert to complete his physical, so they are not cleared to play yet. Hood is in an interesting spot and he may be a nice offensive fit next to Jordan Clarkson in the second unit. His value likely takes a hit, but he may still be able to hold around top 100-120 value in standard leagues.

Utah has traded Rodney Hood to Cleveland, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com. There was never a doubt that Hood was headed out of town, and now he'll be going to a team that is almost the opposite of how the Jazz identified itself. Hood was really cruising as an offensive weapon off the bench, and now he'll have to find his rhythm again. He's a fantasy loser on this deal, but hey the Cavs aren't done.

Rodney Hood scored 18 points with one rebound, two assists and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. This could be his last game as a Jazzman. An earlier report said as many as 15 teams have called about Hood, and he's turned in two good games in a row with this and a 30-point Monday. He's still a hold in standard leagues and hopefully a bad team lands him to help his usage rate.

As many as 15 teams have called about Rodney Hood, according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. You have to wonder of how many of those 15 teams called after his 30-point game on Monday. The Jazz were expected to sell, but their NBA-best six-game active win streak may have changed that. Hood should still be owned in standard leagues despite his propensity to wind up on the injury report.

Rodney Hood    F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood hit 12-of-14 shots, 4-of-4 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for 30 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 27 minutes on Monday. He was pretty bad on Saturday and was a little questionable tonight due to a leg injury. He's on the trading block and the Jazz have Donovan Mitchell and Royce O'Neale, so they don't really need to keep Hood around. He was on fire tonight and helped the Jazz blowout the Pelicans from the bench, missing his season high by a single point. He's been injured a few times this season and with trade rumors flying, this looks like a great time to sell high on Hood before he gets dealt.

Rodney Hood (leg) will play on Monday vs. the Pelicans. This is his second game in a row with a probable tag, but he didn't look great in his last outing with just five points across 16 minutes off the bench. Hood does have restrictions, but coach Quin Snyder wouldn't say what they were. With Hood rumored to be on the trade block, the Jazz might be watching his minutes closely to avoid a setback.

Rodney Hood (leg) is listed as probable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. Hood was also 'probable' before playing 16 minutes off the bench on Saturday, so presumably he's only on the injury report as a precaution. To be safe, owners should confirm his status after Utah's shootaround.
