Wood secured a roster spot with the Pistons, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wood beat out veteran Joe Johnson -- who was waived Monday -- for the team's final roster spot. In five preseason games with Detroit, the 24-year-old posted averages of 13.2 points and 7.2 rebounds in 17.0 minutes per game.
Wood went off for 19 points (7-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 106-86 loss to the 76ers.
Wood was much more effective than Thon Maker, who filled in as the starting center with Blake Griffin (hamstring) and Andre Drummond (rest) sidelined. Wood is helping his case to make the team with performances like this, though he's unlikely to hold much fantasy value even if he does remain on the roster.
Wood tallied 19 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight rebounds and one block across 19 minutes during the Pistons' 115-91 preseason loss to the Magic on Monday.
Wood got his quest for a roster spot off to a highly impressive start, pacing the Pistons bench in scoring and rebounds during the lopsided loss. The fifth-year pro is capable of filling multiple positions and was impressive for the Pelicans at the tail end of last season, so there's certainly a chance he makes enough of an impression to stick on Detroit's roster with a strong enough exhibition slate.
Wood's roster spot is in jeopardy after the Pistons agreed to a one-year contract with Joe Johnson, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com reports.
Unless the team opens up a spot via trade, it's possible Wood loses out to the veteran Johnson. Wood has shown plenty of flashes throughout his time in the NBA, notably averaging 18.3 points, 8.9 rebounds and a combined 2.4 blocks/steals across the final seven games of last season.
Wood was claimed off waiver by the Pistons on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Wood has bounced around the league since debuting in 2015-16 for the 76ers. Since then, he's seen action for the Hornets, Bucks and Pelicans. He saw significant run for New Orleans down the stretch last season, averaging 16.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks across 23.6 minutes in eight appearances. In joining the Pistons, Wood will look to compete for a backup center job with Thon Maker.
Wood was waived by the Pelicans on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
New Orleans plucked Wood off waivers near the end of last season, but he'll be left off the roster as the team trims it down to 15 players. Wood tore up the G League last season as a member of the Bucks' affiliate and impressed over the final few games of the campaign with the Pelicans, so he'll likely find another home in short order. No matter where he lands, however, Wood may face a difficult path to see consistent run in the rotation in 2019-20.
Wood will not play during Saturday's game against the Heat, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
The Pelicans are opting to protect Wood's health by sitting him out of Saturday's action. The next time we'll see him will likely be the preseason.
Wood went for 26 points (10-21 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and 12 rebounds in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 112-103 loss to the Warriors.
Wood accumulated career highs in scoring, rebounding, and minutes while matching his career high in made threes in the season finale. Having posted 20-plus points in three of the last seven games to end 2018-19, it's likely Wood has made a lasting impression, if not on the Pelicans, then on someone else.
Wood will start at power forward in Sunday's game against the Kings, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports.
Wood will get the start with Julius Randle likely getting the night off, as the team said he will only play in an emergency situation. With that, Sunday serves as a big opportunity for Wood, who was one of the rising stars in the G League and should get a full workload in Sacramento.
Wood contributed eight points (3-7 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, and three assists in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 115-109 loss to the Hornets.
Wood played just 21 minutes in Wednesday's loss, his fewest across the last four games. He has been one of the more surprising fantasy assets over that period and should continue to be a factor as long as Anthony Davis (back) in on the sidelines. Davis has been labeled probable for the previous three games but has missed all three. There is a chance he is done for the season and if that is the case, Wood should be better than this on most nights.
Wood posted 15 points (5-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Pelicans' 130-102 loss to the Lakers.
Wood entered Sunday's contest coming off a pair of big performances, but fell a rebound shy of a double-double in both contests. He was able to achieve the feat for the first time in 2018-19 against the Lakers and has continued to build a strong case for universal ownership in fantasy leagues as the season winds down. Though the Pelicans are only playing three games this week, Wood's averages over the past three contests (21.0 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 2.3 steals in 29.0 minutes per game) might be enough to justify using him in lineups. With Anthony Davis (back) uncertain to play at any point this week and Julius Randle's (finger) status in question ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Wood could again be in store for an elevated role in the frontcourt.
Wood tallied 25 points (11-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, three steals, one assist, and one block in 28 minutes during Thursday's 121-118 victory over Sacramento.
Wood's dream week continued Thursday as he poured in a career-high 25 points to go with across the board production. The playing time may have been even higher here had he not been in early foul trouble. Anthony Davis (back) was ruled out and could certainly be shut down for the season. There has been no definite word on that and even if it doesn't eventuate, Wood should be picked up in all formats right now. He translates extremely well as a fantasy prospect and the Pelicans are likely going to see what they have long-term.
Wood produced 23 points (7-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-14 FT), nine rebounds, six blocks, three steals and an assist over 32 minutes in the Pelicans' loss to the Hawks on Tuesday.
Wood produced career highs in points, rebounds and blocks over 32 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks. The performance came out of nowhere as Wood has averaged just 3.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in 5.0 minutes per game this season. His excellent game may afford him more playing time over the final games of the season, and if he continues to receive solid minutes, he may be a valuable fantasy asset.
Wood went for seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in eight minutes during Sunday's 113-90 loss to the Rockets.
Wood showcased his offensive abilities in his Pelicans debut. The 23-year-old big man has plenty of competition for playing time even on nights that Anthony Davis is rested. Moreover, Wood is probably best reserved for use in the deepest leagues.
Wood will be available to make his Pelicans debut in Sunday's game against the Rockets, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
Wood was recently claimed off waivers by the Pelicans after the young big man was let go by the Bucks. Given that Wood has shown plenty of promise with his G League dominance, averaging 29.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game, New Orleans will likely want to use him as much as possible to see what it has in Wood before season's end.
Wood was claimed off waivers by the Pelicans on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wood was let go by the Bucks on Monday to make room for Tim Frazier, and now Wood will get a shot with New Orleans. He's played just 62 total NBA minutes this season -- racking up 37 points, 20 rebounds and two assists -- but he's been a force in the G League. Across 28 appearances with the Wisconsin Herd this season, Wood has averaged 29.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and a combined 3.2 blocks/steals. His role will probably remain relatively small with the Pelicans, but New Orleans has plenty of reason to give him a fair shot considering where they are in the standings.
Wood was waived by the Bucks on Monday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Wood was waived in order to create a roster spot for the signing of Tim Frazier, who was brought in for additional frontcourt depth following the Malcolm Brogdon foot injury. It was surely a tough move for Milwaukee, as Wood has shown plenty of promise with his dominance in the G League and appeared to be on the verge of getting a real shot in the NBA. However, with that said, Wood should now have plenty of suitors upon hitting the open market, but it's worth noting that he will not be playoff-eligible.
Wood tallied 35 points (11-19 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 11-15 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and a steal in the 116-114 win Friday over Lakeland.
Wood has now posted two 30-plus point games in back-to-back contests, with the center dropping 39 points in the win Thursday over Delaware. In 27 games with the Herd, Wood is averaging 29.0 points, 13.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 blocks.
Wood was assigned to the G League's Wisconsin Herd on Sunday, RealGM.com reports.
Wood didn't play in either of the Bucks' first two contests out of the All-Star break, so the parent club sent him to Wisconsin to pick up some run in the Herd's 107-105 loss to the Greensboro Swarm. The UNLV product went off for 19 points, 20 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 33 minutes. The Bucks aren't expected to have Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), George Hill (groin) and Donte DiVincenzo (heel) available for Monday's game in Chicago, so there's a good chance Wood will be recalled prior to the contest to afford Milwaukee an extra body off the bench.
Wood posted 30 points (11-22 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in the loss Tuesday to Windy City.
Wood has been one of the lone bright spots for a Herd squad that sports a dismal 9-26 record. A G League mid-season All-NBA member, Wood is expected to serve a heavy role with the Herd for an extended period, particularly as the Bucks continue to sport one of the best records in the NBA.
