Milwaukee Bucks G Rodney Hood has been traded to the Los Angeles Clippers as part of a four team trade on Thursday morning before the deadline.
Hood has averaged only 14.9 minutes a game this season with the Bucks which is down from his career average of 24.9. The swingman is efficient from deep but rarely provides extra value outside the three ball. The move to the Clippers may increase Hood's value ever so slightly since the Clippers no longer have Eric Bledsoe in the backcourt mix, for now though Hood should remain on the waivers.
Per the NBA Injury Report, Rodney Hood (Achilles) is listed as doubtful to play vs the Knicks on Friday.
Hood comes into Friday listed as doubtful with an Achilles injury. If he misses, Donte DiVincenzo and Wesley Matthews are expected to see extended minutes.
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.
