Rockets' Christian Wood: Headed to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood and the Rockets have come to terms on a three-year, $41 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Wood was one of the more intriguing players in this year's free-agent class. He has put up big numbers when he has had the chance during his young career, but there have been concerns about his defense and focus. However, the Rockets are going to give him a chance, and he now projects as their starting center. He averaged 13.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 triples across 21.4 minutes with the Pistons last season.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Fully clear of coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Nearing full clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Dominant line versus 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Continues strong play in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Hits 30 points for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood poured in a career-high 30 points (13-24 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go with 11 rebounds and two assists across 38 minutes Saturday in the Pistons' 111-105 loss to the Jazz.

In the month that has passed since the Feb. 6 trade deadline, Wood stands out as one of the clear winners. With Andre Drummond now plying his trade in Cleveland, Wood has emerged as the focal point of the Pistons offense. In the 11 games since the deadline, Wood is averaging 22.0 points, 10.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.6 three-pointers and 1.0 block in 33.8 minutes while shooting 53.4 percent from the floor and 78.1 percent from the charity stripe. He's a must-start option in every format.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Scores career-high 29
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (foot) went off for 29 points (12-16 FG, 5-6 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Thunder.

Wood was listed as probable for the second straight contest and gave it a go again as expected. The minor foot injury didn't appear to bother him much, as Wood could barely miss and amassed career highs in scoring, threes and minutes, though he did commit a whopping six turnovers. Assuming he's healthy enough to suit up for Saturday's matchup versus the Jazz, Wood will face off against one of the league's top defenders in Rudy Gobert.

March 4, 2020 06:40 PM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (foot) will play Wednesday against Oklahoma City, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

Wood was probable coming in with a minor foot issue, but his status was never in much doubt. He'll start at power forward alongside John Henson.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Probable for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder due to a sprained right foot.

Wood played through the injury in Sunday's win over Sacramento and did not appear bothered, finishing with 20 points and 12 rebounds in 35 minutes. As of Tuesday night, Detroit is expecting to have him available again.

March 1, 2020 08:40 PM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Posts 20 points, 12 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (foot) had 20 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 loss to the Kings.

Wood had been listed as questionable due to a sprained right foot. However, he was able to give it a go and delivered his 11th double-double through 58 appearances this season. Moreover, Wood has amassed a double-double in six of the last nine games, and the 24-year-old big man can be expected to continue producing fantasy-friendly stat lines so long as he stays healthy going forward.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Cleared for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dwane Casey said Wood (foot) will play Sunday against the Kings, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

Wood likely suffered the sprained right foot in Friday's win over the Suns, but the injury won't be significant enough to cost him any game action. Expect Wood to remain in the starting five for a third straight game Sunday, especially with Detroit down another big man in Thon Maker (ankle).

Pistons' Christian Wood: Questionable with foot sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood has a right foot sprain and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Kings, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Wood presumably picked up the injury during Friday's win over the Suns, when he had 19 points, nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in 35 minutes. The 24-year-old's status could be updated after Detroit's shootaround Sunday morning.

February 26, 2020 09:32 AM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Posts double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood notched 20 points (7-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and one assist in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 115-98 defeat at Denver.

Wood has posted double-doubles in four of his last five starts and, considering his last seven outings, he has either notched a double-double or been a few rebounds away from one. The power forward is having a great run of form through February, averaging 19.3 points and 9.0 rebounds in 30.7 minutes per night during 10 contests this month.

February 26, 2020 11:36 AM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood will get the start at power forward in Tuesday's tilt against the Nuggets, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Wood has excelled in a reserve role in the Pistons' previous two games, and he has apparently earned a start. He has averaged 18.2 points and 9.4 rebounds across 32.6 minutes in five starts this season.

Pistons' Christian Wood: Lights it up off the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood finished with 26 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), nine boards, two blocks and one assist across 31 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 107-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Wood fell one board shy of his third consecutive double-double, continuing his trend of elevated production off the Detroit bench. The 24-year-old has seen his numbers skyrocket since the Feb. 6 trade of Andre Drummond to Cleveland, averaging 20.7 points (on 53.2 percent shooting from the field), 10.5 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.8 triples and 1.2 blocks in 31.8 minutes over the six games that followed.

February 20, 2020 11:04 PM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Another double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood collected 18 points (4-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 27 minutes during Thursday's 126-106 loss to the Bucks.

Wood committed five fouls and four turnovers but still delivered a double-double despite coming off the bench in this one. Wood has logged a double-double in four of the last five games and seems likely to continue contributing at a high level regardless of his role.

February 20, 2020 06:44 PM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Moves to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood will come off the bench Thursday against the Bucks, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Wood started the last four games heading into the All-Star break, but he'll give way to Sekou Doumbouya in the starting lineup Thursday. Across seven games this month, Wood is averaging 18.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 30.7 minutes.

February 12, 2020 10:56 PM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Drops 26 points, 12 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood went off for 26 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 116-112 overtime loss to the Magic.

Wood reached double figures in scoring for the seventh straight game and logged his third double-double in the last four. He's up to eight double-doubles through 53 appearances this season, this after managing two through his first 51 career contests. Wood has benefitted most from Andre Drummond's departure, and the 24-year-old big man should be scooped up immediately if he's still sitting on any waiver wires.

February 9, 2020 12:08 PM
Pistons' Christian Wood: Double-doubles in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood produced 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes Saturday in the Pistons' 95-92 loss to the Knicks.

Wood has unseated struggling rookie Sekou Doumbouya as the starting power forward for the past two games, but it's been the trade of Andre Drummond to the Cavaliers that's really allowed Wood to settle into a higher-usage role on offense for Detroit. The 24-year-old has long been a per-minute monster, and now he's finally getting the level of playing time necessary to make a major fantasy splash. Wood has notched double-doubles in his back-to-back starts and is averaging 20.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 three-pointers, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block while playing 30-plus minutes in each of the past four contests. The potential return of Markieff Morris (illness) could hurt Wood a bit, but Wood will at least remain worth holding in 12-team leagues until his playing time and production actually dips.
