Wood is fully recovered from coronavirus, as he tested negative late Wednesday night, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Wood is the first known NBA player to fully recover from coronavirus, for which he tested positive nearly two weeks ago. This is a good step forward for Wood and the league, but there are still many more hurdles to clear before the season starts back up in some capacity.
Wood's (illness) agent, Adam Pensack, said Wednesday that his client is "feeling great and fully recovered" from the coronavirus, Dana Gauruder of the Detroit Free Press reports. Wood was asymptomatic but tested positive for coronavirus shortly after the NBA suspended games March 12, as the Pistons played Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz the previous weekend. Wood is expected to undergo additional testing Thursday, and if doctors agree with Pensack's assessment, the 24-year-old should be good to go when the NBA resumes its season.
Wood has tested positive for coronavirus, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. According to Charania, Wood is asymptomatic and is doing well. Wood faced Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz last Saturday. Since then, he's faced off against the Knicks and the 76ers.
Wood went for 32 points (14-18 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 124-106 loss to the 76ers. Wood poured in a career-high scoring total while stuffing the stat sheet across every category. He has been absolutely dominant since Detroit traded Andre Drummond, as Wood has stepped up and scored 20-plus in 10 of his last 14 appearances.
Wood compiled 22 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals across 33 minutes in Sunday's 96-84 loss to the Knicks. Although the team was fighting fatigue from a back-to-back, Wood came through with another respectable stat line in the loss. Andre Drummond's departure and Blake Griffin's season-ending knee injury created the perfect storm of opportunity for the UNLV product, and he's quickly become the Pistons' most productive player. Wood is spearheading a youth movement in what is clearly a rebuilding campaign in Detroit, and his 21.6 points and 10.2 rebounds per game since taking over the starting center position are good indicators of his future value to the franchise.
