Rodney Hood (knee) should be good to go Monday night for Jazz

Jazz's Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday

Utah Jazz guard/forward Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday against the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: Hood was removed from Wednesday's game due to knee soreness and was unable to suit up on Thursday. Joe Ingles started in place of Hood on Thursday and logged 36 minutes, finishing with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists. Joe Johnson could also see a few extra minutes with Hood sidelined. Our models already project Ingles for 6.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 22.2 minutes tonight. He'll likely soak up some of Hood's projected 13.7 points, 3.7 rebounds,...

Rodney Hood (knee) is questionable for Jazz's Saturday tilt

Utah Jazz guard/forward Rodney Hood (knee) is questionable for Saturday against the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: He did not play on Thursday due to some soreness in his knee. Hood tapped out of Wednesday's game at half and said he was trying to play through some discomfort. The Jazz will likely be limiting him going forward, so he's probably going to be a headache to own. Joe Ingles has more value right now. If he can play, our models project Hood for the better fantasy value on Saturday, with 13.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists on 28.6 minutes. Source:...

Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (knee) and shooting guard Rodney Hood (knee) have been ruled out for Thursday's meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: Look for Joe Ingles to start in Hood's place, while Joe Johnson will likely draw another start in place of Favors. Favors will have his knee re-evaluated at some point in the next few days, while Hood is day-to-day after making an early exit from Wednesday's game due to knee soreness.

Jazz rule out Rodney Hood (knee) for rest of game

Utah Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood will not return to Wednesday's game due to right knee soreness. What It Means: His right knee has been a source of trouble all season, so there's a good chance Utah will hold him out of Thursday's game even if he's feeling better. Owners should check for updates after shootaround. If he does sit out, expect Joe Ingles, Alec Burks and Dante Exum to absorb most of his playing time. Hood finishes scoreless with four rebounds in nine first-half minutes. He contributed -12.72 nERD while on the court -- worst among Jazz...

Rodney Hood starting for Jazz, Joe Ingles to the bench

Utah Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood will start and Joe Ingles will move to the bench against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. What It Means: Hood came off the bench with 20 minutes against the New Orleans Pelicans, but he should get minutes close to 30 tonight. The Jazz are going small with Joe Johnson in the starting lineup, so they're going to be thinner on the wing. Plus, Alec Burks figures to play some point guard. Hood is a decent pickup, but his bum knee makes him a risky player to own. At just $4,300 on FanDuel NBA DFS, Hood is a good investment tonight for his upside...

Jazz shootaround: 'Big stretch' and tough tests await in season's final weeks

Houston • The Utah Jazz’s last two victories haven’t exactly inspired tremendous confidence. They’ve needed some late-game heroics and good fortune to escape with a win over the lottery-bound Kings then had to fight off a disappointing Pelicans team. But a win, as they say, is a win. And we’re about to see if they have what it takes to win against some of the NBA’s best. “This is a big stretch for us,” shooting guard Rodney Hood said. The Jazz will square off with three straight Western Conferen...

Utah Jazz: To make a playoff run, Jazz need a healthy Rodney Hood

If the Jazz are to make a run in the postseason, they are going to need a healthy Rodney Hood in the lineup. Quin Snyder said as much Monday night after Utah held off New Orleans. The statistics offer further proof. Hood, the Jazz’s starting shooting guard, has played in 45 games this season. The Jazz are 31-14 when he’s in uniform and 9-10 when he sits. Hood averages 14.2 points when the Jazz win with him in the lineup. He averages 12.9 in losses. When he’s aggressive and looking for his shot, ...
