2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hood will remain in Portland on a two-year, $16 million deal. He logged 24.4 minutes per game with the Blazers after being traded from the Cavaliers, and he provided an offensive spark off the bench at times. He averaged 9.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists on serviceable shooting from the floor and from the charity stripe. Hood also made 1.2 threes per game, but he's far from a knockdown shooter. His contributions off the bench were valuable for Portland in the postseason, where he provided scoring in some opportune moments. Hood won't receive nearly the same scoring opportunities that he did while in Cleveland, as he's now surrounded by much more talented teammates in Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, who will handle the majority of work on offense. He'll also have new addition Kent Bazemore to deal with when looking for minutes. Hood has flashed scoring upside, but he goes cold too often. His lack of consistency in that department detracts from his fantasy value, which is negligible aside from points. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Rodney Michael Hood, son of Vicky and Ricky, was born in 1992 in Meridian, Mississippi. Hood comes from a basketball family, as both parents played collegiately at Mississippi State and his brother and sister both starred at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After leading the Meridian High School Wildcats to the Class 6-A State Championship in his senior year, Hood played his first college season at Mississippi State before transferring to Duke, where he played for two more. At the time of his move, he became just the fourth player ever to transfer to Duke since Mike Krzyzewski took over as coach in 1980. Hood hosts an annual basketball camp in Meridian, attracting hundreds of kids each year. More information can be found on the website rodneyhoodhoops.com. You can follow him on Twitter @Rodneyhood and on Instagram @Hoodie5.

College/International Summary

Hood began his collegiate career at Mississippi State, where both his parents played basketball from 1978-80. As a freshman, Hood appeared in 32 of 33 games and made 29 starts en route to a SEC All-Freshman Team selection. He'd go on to average 10.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists. After announcing his intent to transfer, Hood sat out the 2012-13 season as per NCAA rules. He enrolled at Duke for the 2013-14 campaign and went on to appear in 35 contests. With averages of 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game, Hood was named to the All-ACC Second Team. In 22 appearances between Dec. 31 and Mar. 16, he scored in double-figures in 20 of them. To conclude ACC play, Hood went for 24 points in a win over rival North Carolina. Hood would produce six points, six rebounds and a season-high five assists in Duke's first-round loss to Mercer in the NCAA Tournament.

Progresses to explosive workouts

Out For Season
May 14, 2020
Hood (Achilles) has progressed to performing explosive workouts this week, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
ANALYSIS
Hood posted an Instagram video featuring him doing a quick-feet sidestep exercise using a Bosu ball. Considering the explosiveness required for the workout and how much it relates to basketball, it's an encouraging sign that Hood was able to take the court for drills again after tearing his left Achilles' tendon Dec. 6 and requiring surgery. Hood is expected to exercise his $6 million player option this summer and return to the Trail Blazers for a second full season in 2020-21.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Hood began the 2018-19 season in Cleveland, where he appeared in 45 games and averaged 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.0 assists. He scored in double-figures in seven straight games to start the season, punctuated by a 26-point performance in a win over the Hawks on Oct. 30. On Nov. 10, Hood finished with 20 points in a loss to the Bulls. On Nov. 23, he scored 25 points and five 5-of-7 three-pointers, in addition to grabbing four rebounds. Hood was traded to the Trail Blazers on Feb. 4. In 27 games, he averaged 9.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists. He reached double-figures 11 times and hit 45.2 percent of his field goals, as well as 34.5 percent of his three-point attempts. In a game against Charlotte on Mar. 3, Hood scored a season-high 27 points, 21 of which came in the fourth quarter. Hood appeared in all 16 of the Trail Blazers' postseason games throughout their run to the Western Conference Finals. He tied a playoff-career-high with 25 points against Denver in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

2017

Hood began the season in Utah before being dealt to Cleveland in a three-team deal involving Sacramento in early February. On the heels of career-best or co-career-best marks from both the field (42.9 percent) and free-throw line (86.0 percent), Hood averaged 14.7 points, his best to date. Hood was a remarkably consistent scorer all season long. He posted double figures in 46 of his 60 appearances, including 11 games of 20 or more points and three contests in which Hood poured in 30 or more points. Hood also drained better than two (2.1) threes per game for the first time in his career. In his best effort of the season, November 18 against Orlando, Hood nailed seven shots from downtown. Those seven threes (along with a season-high 31 points) came in just over 26 minutes worth of playing time. While best known for his scoring, Hood is more than just an outside shooter. He also excelled at ball security, recording just 1.2 turnovers per night despite averaging 26.9 minutes. Hood tallied at least one theft in 32 of his 60 games.

2016

Hood appeared in 59 games for the Utah Jazz, making 55 starts. He averaged 12.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 27.0 minutes per game. The dynamic wing scored in double-digits 37 times and reached 20 points on 10 occasions. On Mar. 5 against Sacramento, Hood delivered a season-high 28 points. Against Dallas on Dec. 16, he put up 27 points, hitting seven of his eight attempts from beyond the arc. The Duke product grabbed a season-high seven rebounds in a win over the Mavericks on Nov. 2. He registered five assists in three different games -- most notably in a win over the Knicks on Nov. 6, when he added 18 points and six rebounds. Hood appeared in all 11 of Utah's playoff games, as the Jazz fell to the Warriors in four games in the second round. In a Game 7 win over the Clippers in Round 1, Hood went for 11 points and three rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench.

2015

The second year swingman started all 79 games in which he appeared for the Utah Jazz, averaging 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per contest. He shot 42.0 percent from the field, including 35.9 percent from beyond the arc on 5.7 attempts per contest. The athletic wing also hit 86.0 percent of his free throws -- up nearly 10 percentage points from his rookie year. His highest-scoring game of the season came in a win over Memphis on Jan. 2, when he went for 32 points and eight rebounds on 10-of-20 shooting. On Jan. 20, Hood generated 29 points, six rebounds and five dimes during a win a loss at New York. Against the Lakers on Mar. 28, Hood produced 30 points in the first half, as he shot 11-of -13 from the field. And his eight made threes in that contest tied a Jazz franchise record. Hood tallied at least 25 points in six games, and he topped 15 points 37 times. Hood was selected to play in the Rising Stars Challenge at All-Star Weekend in Toronto.

2014

Rodney Hood was drafted in the first round (23rd overall pick) by the Utah Jazz. The rookie out of Duke appeared in 50 games for the Jazz, making 21 starts and averaging 21.3 minutes per contest. He translated that to per-game averages of 8.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists. In his NBA debut on Oct. 29 against Houston, Hood had five points and two rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench. He scored in double-digits for the first time against the Raptors on Dec. 3, finishing with 10 points in 27 minutes. Overall, Hood scored in double-figures 16 times. On Mar. 16, Hood racked up 24 points, three boards and three dimes during a home win over the Hornets. His highest-scoring night of the season came against the Kings on April 5, when he put up 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting. Six days later, he went for 20 points in a win over Houston. Hood was named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month for April. Hood's Jazz squad finished the year at 38-44 and did not qualify for the playoffs.

2014
Hood split last season between the Jazz and the Cavaliers, but his stint in Cleveland was mostly forgettable. The 25-year-old was a more efficient overall scorer with the Cavs than he was in Utah, but he lost confidence as the season wore on and eventually found himself out of the rotation altogether in the playoffs. In 21 regular season games with the Cavs, Hood posted averages of 10.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game, while shooting 44.2 percent from the floor and 35.2 percent from three. During the postseason, those numbers dropped to 5.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game across 17 contests, and Hood converted just 4-of-24 three-point attempts (16.7% 3PT). Despite how poorly he played down the stretch, Hood signed a one-year deal to return to the Cavaliers in 2018-19. The hope is that with LeBron James gone and expectations lowered significantly, Hood can reassert himself as a scorer in what will likely be a larger role. For fantasy purposes, Hood is primarily a points/three-pointers contributor, who historically hasn't provided much value in terms of rebounds, assists, or defensive stats.
Hood made just 59 appearances last season while dealing with a bone contusion and LCL sprain in his right knee. When he played, the 6-foot-8 wing posted 12.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 27.0 minutes per game. He also shot 40.8 percent from the field and made 1.9 threes per game at a 37.1 percent clip. While those numbers are quite meager, he was far from healthy when he took the floor. That said, he performed well when given extended run, averaging 16.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists on 44.9 percent shooting from the field and 36.2 percent from deep during the 27 games in which he saw at least 30 minutes. Those are likely the kinds of numbers the Jazz are hoping he can provide during the 2017-18 campaign, as the absences of both Gordon Hayward and George Hill leave an offensive vacuum on the team. That, combined with the fact that Hood is 24-years-old and heading into his fourth year in the league, put him in a prime position to have a breakout campaign. He’ll likely have to shoulder a scoring burden that he’s not used to, however, which could hinder his efficiency. All in all, the potential is there for him to be a solid top-20 Fantasy shooting guard. His general lack of name recognition could cause him to slide down draft boards as well.
Hood was able to beat out Alec Burks for the starting shooting guard job in training camp and didn’t look back, as he took an encouraging step forward in his sophomore season. The shooting guard from Duke started all 79 games in which he played, averaging 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.0 three-pointers and 0.9 steals in 32.0 minutes per contest, numbers that were all significant improvements from his rookie season. While Hood’s strong three-point shooting was the major reason he was able to hang on to a starting role, his 6-foot-8 frame and long wingspan has made him an asset on the defensive end, too. The Jazz will look to Hood to develop some more consistency as a scorer after his point totals were often unpredictable from game to game last season, but perhaps a healthier roster will open up some cleaner looks for him in 2016-17. Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors and Burks are all back in the fold after missing large chunks of last season with injury, giving the Jazz more weapons to take the pressure off Hood and fellow wing Gordon Hayward.
Hood is coming off a disappointing rookie season which was marred by a recurring foot injury that limited him to just 50 games. Although, he regained his fitness near the end of the season and was able to start in 21 total games, even winning Rookie of Month honors for April as he resurrected his season. Last year, his main competition for minutes was fellow rookie Joe Ingles, but now the return of Alec Burks (shoulder) complicates things for coach Quin Snyder since each of the aforementioned players could conceivably be named a starter given their ability to play at small forward in addition to shooting guard. Regardless of how it turns out, Hood is a budding sharpshooter from beyond the arc and is expected to see a solid spot in the rotation, and if he continues to show progress, the former Blue Devil could surely end up finding value in standard-sized leagues as he'll look to improve on his averages of 8.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.2 three-pointers from last season.
Rodney Hood was drafted by the Jazz with the 23rd-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. After averaging 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers in 33 minutes per game as a sophomore for Duke last season, Hood showed his ability to contribute to an NBA rotation right away with an impressive Las Vegas Summer League. His summer league was highlighted by a 29-point performance where he was able to connect on seven three-pointers. Hood's stellar performance this summer seemed to solidify his spot as the second option at small forward behind Gordon Hayward. Hayward was a workhorse for the Jazz last season, but Hood still stands a chance to be given significant time on the court with his ability to catch fire from long range. When Hood first joined the Jazz in the offseason, he showed hesitancy shooting the ball to the point where new head coach Quin Snyder directly challenged him to be more aggressive. Rookie hiccups are to be expected, but Hood will be best if he's an aggressive scorer, since it's what Utah lacked in last season.
