After hyperextending his left knee in the Trail Blazers’ game seven win over the Denver Nuggets, there was concern over if and when Hood would be available for the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors.
Hood underwent an MRI, and much to everyone’s relief, it came back clean and his status has been listed as day-to-day for the conference finals.
Trail Blazers beat reporter Casey Holdahl reported that Hood has a bone bruise in his left knee. Joe Freeman of The Oregonian also reported Hood’s status.
Though he only has six points in his 20 minutes of action prior to getting hurt, he showed he can be an impactful player, making pivotal plays that helped to win the series for Portland and looking more like the player he was in Utah.
