Rodney Hood    F  Jazz

 

 

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey believes that Rodney Hood "has the potential to be in that 18 points per game range." "We have to let Rodney become the offensive wing we know he can be," Lindsey said. "We didn't want to bring in anyone who could get in the way of Donovan [Mitchell], Dante [Exum] and Rodney. We want them to develop." Hood's always had the talent, but injuries and inconsistent play have really held him back. Hood had a 28.1 usage rate with Gordon Hayward off the floor last season (20.1 with Hayward on the floor) and could potentially be Utah's No. 1 option on offense in his age-24 season, so all signs point to a career year.

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey said that Rodney Hood could become a "primary scorer" for Utah this season. "It's time for us to pivot, it's time for us to move on," Lindsey said, while addressing the team's acquisition of Ricky Rubio. The departure of Gordon Hayward was the proverbial elephant in the room, but Hood's health is one of the biggest variables. For fantasy purposes, it would be ideal for him to start the 2017-18 season as one of Utah's only go-to scorers.

Rodney Hood said his sprained right knee will take about a month to fully heal. Hood also said that there wasn't much swelling and it wasn't bad enough to require an MRI, so it sounds like he'll be just fine with some rest. Hood ranked well outside the top-150 during his third NBA season, and was particularly bad after the break when he averaged just 10.6 points, 1.7 triples and not much else while connecting on just 37.9 percent of his shot attempts. He also only managed to make it through 59 games, so he won't be the most appealing guy to draft next year.

Rodney Hood has been diagnosed with a right knee sprain and will not return to Monday's Game 4 vs. the Warriors, finishing with two points, two boards and one assist in 14 minutes. The Jazz ruled him out after just a couple minutes in real time after he went back to the locker room. This is the same knee that has bothered Hood all season and the Jazz will likely run some additional tests on him -- he's expected to have an MRI, but the injury is not believed to be more serious than a sprain according to Jazz reporter Tony Jones. With the Jazz about to be swept on their home floor, Hood will have plenty of time to rest up in the offseason. He regressed in his third season, averaging 12.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.9 3-pointers on 40.8 percent shooting. He also appeared in just 59 regular-season games.

Rodney Hood (knee) left Monday's Game 4 vs. the Warriors in the fourth quarter and went back to the locker room. He took a hard fall and was grabbing his leg behind his knee, and while he was able to shoot his free throws, he had a significant limp and was visibly frustrated -- Jazz reporters could hear him cursing in the tunnel on his way to the back. Knee injuries have been the story of his season, so hopefully it's nothing serious. We'll have an update shortly.

Rodney Hood made 1-of-8 from the field for three points with three rebounds, three assists in 32 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday. He did go to the locker room briefly. Hood didn't appear to ask out, he was talking to coach Quin Snyder for one possession on the bench, and walked back to the locker room after that. Hood returned to the game just a few minutes later, so he's probably fine. Although, he is missing some opportunities on offense in this series and it's fair to suggest his lingering knee issue may be back again.
