    Rodney Hood was putting together a decent fantasy season before tearing his left Achilles in December, netting top-175/155 (8/9-cat) value on the back of 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.7 triples per game.

    Hood also notched a career-high by shooting .506 from the field after topping out at .435 in his first five seasons. He was a vital floor-spacer and perimeter defender for a Portland team that lacked depth, and looks to have found a decent fit after struggling during his tenure in Cleveland. Unfortunately, Hood's stat set isn't the easiest pathway to value — even with the ridiculous efficiency he was not a 12-team player — and he's best left for deeper formats next year, especially given the severity of his injury.

    Rodney Hood (torn left Achilles) has recently shed his walking boot and is working out one-on-one with the Portland training staff three days a week.

    Hood is hoping to get in some court work in June, but that will largely depend on the pandemic situation. Obviously, Hood won't play again this season even if the Blazers make a deep run, but a delay to the start of next season may give him a shot at suiting up for the onset of 2020-21. Hood mentioned that he hasn't thought much about his $6 million player option, but we would assume he'll opt into it coming off such a major injury.

    The NBA has granted the Blazers a $2.86M injury exception for Rodney Hood on Tuesday, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    With the exception, the Blazers have until March 10th to sign a player to a one-year contract or an expiring contract within the afforded salary range. The Blazers need frontcourt depth behind Carmelo Anthony and Hassan Whiteside, and this money will help with that. It seems more than likely that the Blazers will wait until after the buyout market as the team already has the highest payroll in the league.

    Rodney Hood had surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn left Achilles that he suffered during Friday's game and remains without a timetable.

    A torn Achilles is one of the worst injuries that someone can suffer in basketball. Hood can safely be ruled out for the rest of the season. Kent Bazemore and Anfernee Simons will have more opportunity going forward.

    Rodney Hood suffered a torn left Achilles on Friday.

    Just terrible news for a guy who was getting his career back on track with a solid season. He complained of left Achilles soreness on Wednesday and obviously the worst case scenario has played out here. The Blazers might have to hit the trade market for wing depth, but if they don't make any moves it'll mean more minutes for Kent Bazemore, Anfernee Simons, Gary Trent and maybe even Mario Hezonja.

    Rodney Hood logged a solid 25 minutes on Wednesday, contributing 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting (4-of-4 from deep), three rebounds and three assists.

    Hood has scored 11 points or more in four of his last five games. He's been an end-of-bench guy over the early part of the season, but what you see is what you're gonna get right now.

    Rodney Hood came away with 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a triple against the Bulls on Monday.

    Hood was one of the few Blazers to outshine their usual numbers on a night where minimal effort was required. He's sitting with top-110 value in the last couple of weeks and top-125 numbers on the year, so give him a look to round out your bench in 12-teamers.

    Rodney Hood played a quietly solid 30 minutes on Thursday night, finishing with 11 points (5-of-5 shooting), three rebounds, four assists and two steals.

    Hood is a perfectly fine option who holds value in part because he will get minutes on a team that really needs him to perform well. He should maintain value in the top-120 range.

    Rodney Hood (back spams) returned to action on Wednesday night and dropped 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting, two boards, an assist and five 3-pointers.

    Hood looks like someone that should be owned in standard leagues as he is providing nice numbers from deep and shooting 50 percent from the field this season. He's currently inside the top-120.

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) is available to play in Wednesday's matchup against the Raptors.

    Hood missed his last two games with the injury and should be good to go in this one. He was turning in servicible value before going down, and will mostly take away from any value Kent Bazemore had been able to put together while Hood was out.

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) is probable to play on Wednesday.

    Hood was also listed probable on Tuesday but ended up sitting out, so fantasy managers will need to check back for an update. He's returning late-round value and isn't a must-own player in 12-teamers given his moderate upside, but he is trending in the right direction if you'd usually plug him into lineups.

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) might not play on Tuesday vs. the Kings despite previously being listed as probable.

    This news comes as a surprise as he was previously listed as probable. The news isn't official so continue to monitor as we get closer to tip-off. It does seem unlikely that he will take the floor after all. If he is unable to play, look for Kent Bazemore, Anfernee Simons and Mario Hezonja to pick up additional minutes

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

    Hood missed Sunday's game, but should be on the floor on Tuesday night. He's been getting big minutes this season, but he's mainly a threes and free throw percentage streamer.

    Rodney Hood is out for Sunday's matchup vs. the Hawks due to the back spasms.

    The back spams originally occurred on Friday and forced Hood to exit the game against the Nets, and the issue did not resolve itself over the weekend. He was originally questionable so managers should expect Hood to return in the near future.

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) is being considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Hawks.

    Hood left the last game with back spasms and the Blazers are already dealing with several injuries. Mario Hezonja and Kent Bazemore would benefit if Hood is forced to sit out and would make for solid DFS or streaming options.
