Hood has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Bucks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Hood will be released by the Raptors in order to sign the one-year deal with Milwaukee, which will likely pay him the veteran's minimum. Injuries have derailed Hood over the last two seasons, but he remains a capable wing scorer who will bring some much-needed shooting to the Bucks' bench.
Hood was diagnosed with a fracture of the second metacarpal of his left hand Saturday. The 28-year-old had three points (1-2 FG, 1-1 FT), one rebound and one steal in 14 minutes before exiting with the injury. Hood is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the regular season with only four games left on the schedule and Toronto trailing Indiana by 4.5 games for the final play-in spot.
Hood played three minutes Tuesday in the Raptors' 105-100 loss to the Clippers, producing two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and no other statistics. Even with five Toronto players sitting Tuesday due to injury, Hood still played the least of the 10 Raptors that received minutes. Since he was cleared to return from a knee injury of his own in late April, Hood has been on the fringe of head coach Nick Nurse's rotation. He's maxed out at 12 minutes over the past six contests, sitting out two contests entirely in coach's decisions.
Hood (knee) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Cavaliers. After being listed as probable Sunday, Hood has now been removed from the injury report altogether, so he'll be active Monday night. The reserve wing missed a pair of games due to tendinitis in his right knee.
Hood (knee) is probable for Monday's game against the Cavaliers. Hood was a late scratch Saturday due to right knee tendinitis, but he'll likely be able to play Monday. Hood has averaged 5.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per game across his last six appearances.
