After suffering a hand fracture on Saturday, Rodney Hood is expected to miss his second straight game Thursday against the Bulls.
Hood's injury leaves the Raptors with just eight healthy bodies on the roster, so expect all of them to see solid minutes on Thursday against Chicago.
Rodney Hood exited Saturday’s 109-99 loss to the Grizzlies early and was diagnosed with a fracture of the second metacarpal of his left hand.
Hood logged 14 minutes before exiting Saturday’s loss early. He provided three points (1-2 FG, 1-1FT), one rebound, and one steal before exiting. The Raptors have four games left in the regular season, Hood could be out for the remainder of the year. The 28-year-old is averaging 4.5 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.6 triples across 17.1 minutes in 2020-21.
Rodney Hood managed seven points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 11 minutes during Sunday’s 121-114 win over the Lakers.
Hood chipped in seven points in Sunday’s win after failing to score in the previous three games. The reserve wing doesn’t have much of a role in the Raptors rotation and is only worth rostering in deep-league formats. Hood is averaging 4.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.7 triples across 17.6 minutes for the Trail Blazers/Raptors in 2020-21. The Raptors' next scheduled game is Tuesday, away against the Clippers.
Toronto Raptors guard Rodney Hood (knee) has been ruled out Wednesday vs Nets.
Hood will miss out on Wednesday's game, but the Raptors will be back to full strength as Siakam, Lowry, and VanVleet will all return. Expect Hood's minutes to slide to Gary Trent Jr.
Rodney Hood totaled seven points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) and one assist across 17 minutes during Friday’s 113-102 win over the Magic.
Hood returned to action on April 10th after missing the last four contests due to a hip issue. He has a limited role in the Raptors’ rotation and continues to come off the bench. Hood has now failed to reach double figures in scoring over his last five games. The Raptors next scheduled contest is Sunday, home against the Thunder.
