Rodney Hood (Achilles) returned from a four-game absence on Wednesday night, playing 26 minutes in a start and posting 13 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers.
Hood also shot 5-of-7 and played pretty well considering his layoff. Unfortunately it's going to be tough for him to really separate from the rest of a crowded group. Alec Burks also started and had nine points in 27 minutes while Pat McCaw played 18 minutes, Matthew Dellavedova also saw 18 minutes, and David Nwaba wasn't even around to chip away at the margins. Hood and Burks are the best bets but we're still in the 16-team neighborhood.
