Utah’s Rodney Hood hyperextends knee, to be re-evaluated Sunday (VIDEO)


That looks scary. Hopefully, it’s not serious.

It was late in the fourth quarter or Utah’s eventual win over Orlando Sunday night when Rudy Gobert rejected a Nikola Vucevic shot with enough authority to start a fast break the other way. Rodney Hood was leading the way, attacked the rim, stepped on the foot of Jodie Meeks, and he went down awkwardly.

He hyperextended his knee. Here is the latest, via Jody Genessey of the Deseret News.

Hood starts at the two for Utah and has averaged 14 points a game for the Jazz this season. The team is 7.2 points per 100 possessions better with him on the court. If he is out for any length of time, it will mean more run for Koe Ingles and Alec Burks.
