Hood (knee) started at shooting guard and provided three points (1-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 21 minutes in a 109-95 win over the Bucks on Friday.
Hood returned from a seven-game absence Friday due to the knee injury, but didn't do much to convince fantasy owners who had been stashing him that he's deserving of an activation just yet. He had as many fouls as points, received fewer minutes than any other starter and was outperformed by Joe Ingles (six points, seven rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes), who had been running with the top unit during Hood's absence. It may take a few games for Hood to find his shooting touch, but even once he's comfortable again, the Jazz's slow pace and typically balanced offensive attack may conspire to limit his fantasy upside.
Hood will start at shooting guard in his return to action Friday against the Bucks.
Hood missed the final seven games before the All Star break with a bone contusion and LCL sprain in his right knee, but is ready to return to action Friday. The team has not mentioned any minute restriction for Hood, but they figure to be cautious should he show any signs of a setback. Joe Ingles will return to the bench as a result of Hood's return.
Hood has missed the past seven contest due to a bone contusion and LCL sprain in his right knee but is ready to return to the court after receiving some much-needed rest during the All-Star Break. The team has yet to comment on how many minutes the starting shooting guard will receive, but if he is restricted expect Joe Ingles and Alec Burks to see increased minutes off the bench.
Hood (knee) is hopeful to play in Friday's matchup against the Bucks, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Hood missed the last seven games before the All Star break, and played in just three of the last 15 due to a bone contusion and LCL sprain in his right knee. Joe Ingles filled in for him at shooting guard, so he figures to see a reduced workload if Hood is able to return. It is unclear if the Jazz will keep Hood on any type of minute restriction if he does indeed return Friday, but it would likely be short lived if that is the case. A final determination on his status is not likely to be announced until closer to game-time Friday.
Hood (knee) will be sidelined until after the All-Star break, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Hood has missed five straight games due to a bone contusion and LCL sprain in his right knee, and won't see the floor until after the All-Star break. Hood is averaging 13.7 points and 3.6 rebounds across 28.6 minutes per game for the Jazz, and Joe Ingles is drawing the start in his place for the time being. The Jazz's first game after the break comes Feb. 24 against the Bucks, and could be the first time that Hood sees the floor again.
