Jazz's Rodney Hood: Misses shootaround, questionable for Thursday

Hood (hamstring) was unable to take part in morning shootaround and remains questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Heat, Jazz radio play-by-play broadcaster David Locke reports.

Hood underwent an MRI that cleared him of any internal damage to the hamstring injury he picked up in Tuesday's win over the Rockets, but he could still be at risk of missing some time. His absence from shootaround doesn't bode well for his chances of playing Thursday, though he'll continue to receive treatment throughout the day with the hope of being cleared to play. If Hood can't give it a go Thursday, Joe Johnson would likely step into the starting lineup at shooting guard.
