    Rodney Hood (back spasms) will not play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Suns.

    Kent Bazemore and Mario Hezonja should see extended run in Hood's absence. Hood should be treated as day-to-day going forward.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, Miami Heat

    Moe Harkless will be dealt to the Heat when the offseason moratorium ends.

    Harkless and Meyers Leonard will head to the Heat with Hassan Whiteside going to Portland. The move takes Whiteside's absurd $27.1 million salary off the books, and Harkless and Leonard will make about $22 million combined. That extra room will make completing the Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade much easier. As it stands, Harkless has a chance of starting for Miami, though there are more personnel moves to come. Currently his biggest threats to playing time look like James Johnson, Kelly Olynyk (who may be traded) and Derrick Jones Jr. Harkless was a top-150ish player last year and closed his season with a top-90 run. Don't forget about him. Back in Portland, Kent Bazemore, Rodney Hood, Mario Hezonja and Nassir Little should step into extra minutes, which helps their outlooks considerably.

    Rodney Hood and the Blazers have agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal.

    The deal includes a player option. It's a mild surprise that Hood is back after the Blazers acquired Kent Bazemore, but they now have more wing depth than they have in quite some time. It'll make for a cramped fantasy situation, but the Blazers are doing well to try and keep pace with a highly competitive Western Conference.

    Rodney Hood, Enes Kanter and Damian Lillard were not listed on Portland's injury report ahead of Game 2 on Thursday night vs. the Warriors.

    This is promising news for a team that was handled easily in Game 1 on Tuesday. All three players are dealing with some discomfort but look ready to go for Thursday's Game 2. The only player who is at risk of losing playing time is Enes Kanter due to his poor pick-and-roll defense. Zach Collins may take more of Kanter's minutes as the series rolls along.

    Rodney Hood (left knee hyperextension/bone bruise) was able to play 26 minutes in Tuesday's Game 1 loss to the Warriors, scoring 17 points with a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Hood was game-time decision in the run up to tipoff and ended up turning in a solid game. There was a play in the third quarter where Hood fell and grabbed at his left knee, but he was able to stay in the game without further issue. He's clearly not at 100 percent, but he's been one of the Blazers' best players in the postseason and should be expected to play in Game 2 on Thursday.

    Rodney Hood (left knee hyperextension/bone bruise) is available to play on Tuesday night against the Warriors.

    Hood is apparently feeling good after going through a pregame warmup. He's emerged as a key player in Portland's rotation this postseason and will provide much-needed depth on the wings.

    Rodney Hood (left knee hyperextension/bone bruise) is a game-time decision on Tuesday against the Warriors.

    Hood will go through his pregame routine with a brace on his knee, and while he's clearly not 100 percent he does have a legitimate chance at suiting up tonight. He was able to go through a light shootaround earlier in the day. Expect another update shortly.

    Rodney Hood (left knee hyperextension) is going through warmups ahead of Game 1 against the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Pregame warmups aren't close to game speed, but they are something, and we should expect to have an official update on his availability reasonably soon. Stay tuned.

    Rodney Hood (left knee hyperextension) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Warriors.

    Hood escaped with just a hyperextension of his knee and he has a chance to not miss any time. We'll have to wait until Tuesday's shootaround for more info.

    Rodney Hood (left knee hyperextension) is hopeful to play in Tuesday's Game 1 against the Warriors.

    Hood left Sunday's game with the Nuggets in the second half but said that further testing on his knee revealed no structural issues. It's a quick turnaround for the Blazers, and if Hood is unable to suit up on Tuesday then it'll result in more minutes for Moe Harkless and Evan Turner.

    Rodney Hood did not return to the court on Sunday after hyperextending his left knee.

    Hood was in a lot of pain, so we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, but stay tuned and we'll keep you updated on his status. He logged 20 minutes before exiting the game and posted six points on 2-of-6 shooting with three rebounds.

    Rodney Hood is questionable to return to Sunday's Game 7 because of a left knee hyperextension.

    Hood looked to be in serious pain as he was helped to the locker room. Moe Harkless and Evan Turner will help hold down the fort in the meantime.

    Rodney Hood was helped back to the locker room after appearing to hurt his knee in Sunday's Game 7.

    Hood's knee buckled after he absorbed a hard screen from Torrey Craig. His absence would be a major blow to the Blazers, who have opted to roll with him over either of their starting forwards. If his day is done, Hood will finish the game with six points in 20 minutes.

    Rodney Hood shot 8-for-12 from the field for 25 points with four boards and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes off the bench in Game 6 against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Whenever you get a Rodney Hood game, good things have to happen. Thursday was one of those nights, as a 66% shooting percentage is hard to beat. Hood has been a welcome addition to the Blazers, who are just one win away from the Western Conference Finals.
