Wood ended with 10 points, eight rebounds and one block in 14 minutes during Thursday's 122-111 loss to the Mavericks.
Wood played just 14 minutes off the bench but still managed to end just two rebounds shy of a double-double. He is one of the more attractive fantasy options when looking at per-36 numbers. Unfortunately, his role is wildly inconsistent making him tough to roster outside of deeper formats. The Pistons are heading toward a future where they could look to develop their younger players. If and when this eventuates, Wood could serve as a 12-team option very quickly.
Wood went off for 28 points (11-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's 132-98 win over the Spurs.
Wood finished with a career high in scoring while doing so extremely efficiently. He now has three double-doubles through 18 appearances this season, this after logging two through his first 51 appearances of his career (dating back to 2015-16).
Wood (knee) had just two points, two rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes during Saturday's 104-90 loss to Milwaukee.
Wood played just 11 minutes despite the fact Blake Griffin was resting. Markieff Morris was in the starting lineup and, for some reason, played 34 minutes. Morris is not a good player and the hope is that head coach Dwayne Casey eventually figures that out. Wood certainly has fantasy upside but until he can carve out a consistent role, he is merely a stash.
Wood is probable for Saturday's game against the Bucks due to right knee soreness, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Wood presumably picked up the injury during Friday's win over the Hawks. He's averaging 11.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 15.5 minutes across the past four games.
Wood scored 11 points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, a season-high four blocks, an assist and a steal in only 12 minutes during Friday's 128-103 win over the Hawks.
Game script and an opponent that didn't put up much of a fight in the frontcourt led to an incredibly efficient performance from the 24-year-old, one game after Wood needed only 18 minutes against the Bulls to post his second double-double of the year. Already on his fifth NBA team since debuting in 2015, Wood seems to be finding a home behind Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin in Detroit, but his limited court time will make it tough for him to return much fantasy value on a consistent basis.
Wood finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and an assist in 18 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Bulls.
Wood chipped in with his second double-double of the season, scoring in double-figures for the fifth time in 13 games. He's been remarkably productive in limited bench minutes so far and is averaging 8.3 points and 3.6 rebounds while shooting 60.4 percent from the field, 55.6 percent form three and 63.0 percent from the line in 15.0 minutes per game this year.
Wood produced just five points and one rebound in six minutes during Friday's 109-106 loss to Charlotte.
With Blake Griffin returning to the lineup Friday, it was Wood who took the biggest hit. He was basically out of the rotation in this one and seems destined to remain waiver wire fodder moving forward. The Pistons are struggling at the moment and if things continue down this path, there is a world in which Wood could move ahead of Morris in the rotation. He only needs 20 minutes to have fantasy value and so if you can live with inconsistency, he is still worth stashing in certain formats.
Wood went for 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-9 FT), three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 117-108 loss to the Heat.
Wood was a healthy scratch during Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves, as Blake Griffin (rest) made his season debut in that one before receiving the evening off on this second night of a back-to-back. It's unlikely that Wood will be an impactful player for fantasy purposes on nights when Griffin is in the lineup, but Wood is a worthy dart throw in daily leagues when Griffin is out.
Wood (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Monday in the Pistons' 120-114 loss to the Timberwolves.
Though Blake Griffin (hamstring) only logged 24 minutes in his season debut Monday, his return in a limited role was enough to bump Wood from the rotation. With Griffin healthy again, Wood's hopes for regaining a rotation spot will likely hinge on Thon Maker playing himself out of the backup center role.
Wood amassed just two rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes during Friday's 112-106 loss to Indiana.
Wood missed his only shot on Friday, failing to capitalize on another promising opportunity. He has shown flashes of upside so far this season but it is too hard to trust him in standard formats. If you are able to stash him, Wood could turn things around later in the season. However, with Blake Griffin (hamstring) nearing a return, Wood could even find himself out of the rotation altogether at stages moving forward.
Wood recorded 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 21 minutes during Monday's 115-99 loss to the Wizards.
Wood was spectacular offensively, finishing with over twice as many points as field goal attempts while making an impact on the defensive end as well. He has reached double figures in scoring in three of seven appearances this season, and his shooting percentages remain incredibly high here in the early stages of the season. Still, Blake Griffin (hamstring) is nearing his return to action, which may result in less minutes for Wood going forward.
Wood scored a team-high 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt) while adding 12 rebounds and a block in 21 minutes off the bench during Monday's 96-94 win over the Pacers.
The 24-year-old is playing for his fifth team since being an undrafted rookie in 2015, but Wood looked like a Sixth Man of the Year candidate in this one, recording his third career double-double while setting a career high in made threes. He put up strong numbers last season over eight games for New Orleans, so this kind of production isn't completely out of the blue, but Wood will need to show he can do it more consistently before he's worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues.
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.
