Rodney Hood scored four points on 1-of-8 shooting vs. the Bulls on Monday.
He played 27 minutes, adding two rebounds, two assists and one block. Hood's name has been in the rumor mill, but if he can't produce in Cleveland against the Bulls there's really no point in monitoring this. Surely you can find a player with better upside or more consistency on your wire. Jan 21 - 5:16 PM

Rodney Hood was 5-of-9 from the field Saturday vs. the Nuggets, scoring 18 points (6-of-6 FTs) with three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

After scoring just four points in his return to Utah Friday night, Hood was much better in the Cavaliers' blowout loss to the Nuggets. The keys for him when it comes to his fantasy value are health and consistency, as both have been issues this season. Hood has now reached double figures in scoring in five games this month, and he's averaging 12.2 points per with 43.6/35.3/100.0 shooting splits in January.

Rodney Hood hit 6-of-14 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-5 free throws for 18 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 24 minutes of Sunday's win over the Lakers.

Hood's been back from his Achilles injury for two games now and looked pretty good on Sunday. He's been in and out of the lineup since Christmas, but is worth keeping an eye on in case he can get, and stay, healthy. Just put him on your radar in case Sunday was the start of a hot streak for Hood.
Jan 14 - 12:12 AM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) returned to action against the Rockets, scoring six points (2-of-7 FGs) with two rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes.

Hood missed the previous three games and returned in limited action on Friday. He's been a late-round value in standard leagues thus far, but isn't the most reliable player. Outside of scoring, Hood doesn't offer much fantasy production. He's missed seven of the last 10 games due to his Achilles issue, so a minutes limit might linger for a bit.
Jan 11 - 11:03 PM

Rodney Hood (sore left Achilles) is starting on Friday vs. the Rockets.

Hood told Joe Vardon of The Athletic that he would play limited minutes in this one, so he's just a low-end streamer if you need points and triples. Collin Sexton, Alec Burks, Cedi Osman and Tristan Thompson will also start.
Jan 11 - 8:01 PM

Rodney Hood (sore left Achilles) is questionable vs. Houston on Friday.

Hood's Achilles has bothered him for weeks and a previous return was short-lived, so the Cavs aren't likely to bring him back until he's close to 100 percent. Once he does return, guys like Alec Burks, Matthew Dellavedova and Jalen Jones would likely lose playing time.
Jan 10 - 6:02 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) will not play on Wednesday against the Pelicans.

His Achilles issue will keep him out for six of his last eight games, and he could miss more time, too. Hood is a fairly easy drop given his injury history and the Cavs sliding in the standings. With him and Larry Nance out, it could be Jalen Jones getting a start, or Jordan Clarkson could get more run in the first unit, as well.
Jan 9 - 5:41 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) will not play on Tuesday against the Pacers.

Hood wasn't able to practice on Monday, so it's not at all surprising to see him getting ruled out for Tuesday's game and for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Wednesday's matchup with the Pelicans. Jaron Blossomgame, Alec Burks and Jordan Clarkson will divvy up his minutes, with Burks and Clarkson being the preferable targets in fantasy hoops.
Jan 7 - 5:51 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) did not practice on Monday.

He was able to get some on-court work off to the side, so it doesn't sound like he will be out long. If Hood can't play vs. the Pacers on Tuesday, the Cavs would have to heavily rely on Alec Burks and Jordan Clarkson with Pat McCaw no longer with the team. Burks had eight points, six assists, three boards, two triples and one steal in 36 minutes in his last outing and is more of a streamer, while Clarkson had 23 points and continues to excel with the Cavs.
Jan 7 - 1:12 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

With him and Matt Dellavedova out, the Cavs are going to be very thin in the backcourt. It was Alec Burks checking in behind Collin Sexton on Friday, but he may have to start this game with Hood out. Jaron Blossomgame and Pat McCaw could be getting more run while Jordan Clarkson should get into the 30s.
Jan 5 - 6:25 PM

Rodney Hood (left Achilles soreness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Hood has been dealing with a nagging Achilles injury since December. He was able to play Friday night, tallying 12 points, five rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes in a loss to the Jazz. However, Cleveland may choose to sit him out on the second night of a back-to-back. Alec Burks, Jaron Blossomgame and Jordan Clarkson will divvy up extra minutes if he is ruled out.
Jan 5 - 1:46 PM

Rodney Hood scored 12 points in a 117-91 loss to the Jazz on Friday, adding five rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He scored all 12 points in the first half, and the Jazz limited his usage in the second half. Considering Hood's Achilles issue from late last month, it's possible he doesn't play against the Pelicans on Saturday night. Either way, he's tough to count on in fantasy because of injuries, inconsistency and lack of diversity on the stat sheet.
Jan 4 - 9:54 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) scored 13 points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

He played well and may have played a little more had the game been close. The Cavs will likely be rooting for him to continue to up his trade value, but they also may not play him 30-plus minutes consistently. He's been hurt over his career with a slew of leg injuries, so the Cavs will likely be cautious. Hood could be worth a look in deeper leagues, but his long-term outlook this season is risky at best.
Jan 2 - 9:23 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) is available against the Heat on Wednesday.

He missed the last four games with soreness in his Achilles, and there's a chance he has a minutes limit. Hood has dealt with Achilles issues before, and of course the Cavs may want to trade him at the deadline. He's not really worth adding in standard leagues while Alec Burks, Jaron Blossomgame and Jordan Clarkson could take a hit.
Jan 2 - 5:26 PM

Rodney Hood (Achilles) is questionable to play Wednesday against the Heat.

Hood has missed the past four games for Cleveland with a sore Achilles, and it sounds like that number could it five tonight. If he's out again, there will be more minutes available for Alec Burks, Jaron Blossomgame and Jordan Clarkson.
