Hood underwent surgery to repair his ruptured left Achilles tendon in early December. He expects to be ready for the 2020-2021 campaign. Hood has not decided if he is picking up his player option with the Trail Blazers. "But I fully expect to be in a Portland Trail Blazers uniform next season," Hood said. The 27-year old averaged 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.7 triples across 29 games this season. The NBA season is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
