Rodney Hood has been downgraded to “out” after previously being listed questionable and he will miss his second consecutive game against the Knicks tonight.
The Cavs are being smart about their starting shooting guard with playoffs just around the corner. Hood is going to finish the season missing 22 games, showing once again his inability to remain healthy and be a consistent fantasy asset. Kyle Korver is expected to start in his place while Jordan Clarkson and JR Smith will pick up some extra minutes. Hood's stat set has long been a problem in standard leagues and he finished just inside of the top-150 when on the floor this season, but 22 missed games due to back, leg and ankle issues dropped him into the top-175.
