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.
Wood has been recalled from the G League ahead of Tuesday's game against Detroit, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Wood has been lighting it up across the board with the Herd so far this season, although he's yet to see much of a chance with Milwaukee. He hasn't taken the court for the Bucks since Dec. 5, when he logged seven minutes and recorded six points along with four rebounds against the Pistons. Wood's chances of sniffing the court Tuesday night seem slim.
