Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Rodney Hood was excused from Wednesday morning’s practice session for what the team called “personal reasons.” At the time, not much was thought of the designation. Now, however, the reason why he was not in attendance has been revealed.

Shortly before 2:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday afternoon, Hood posted a heartwarming picture on Twitter to let the world know that he and his family have welcomed twins into this world. Their names are Riley and Rich Hood.

The Hood’s now have three children, with Rodney Jr. being the eldest (born January 3, 2016).

Hood, now 25 years of age, has been an excellent addition for the Cavs. As most fans of the team know, Hood came to the Cavs by way of their blockbuster trade deadline deal — a move that saw six players traded. In his 21 games played for Cleveland, the former 23rd overall pick (2014) has racked up averages of 10.8 points on 44.2 percent shooting from the field (35.2 percent from beyond the arc), 2.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.7 steals in 25.3 minutes per.

Currently, Hood and the Cavs are trailing the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs, 1-0. You never know, the birth of twins could bring an inspired performance.

As a starter, Hood logged 19 minutes in Sunday’s 98-80 loss to the Pacers, scoring seven points on 3-7 shooting (1-3 from downtown), three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

“We’ll play a lot better,” Hood said after Tuesday’s practice. “We can’t play any worse than we did.”

Hood and a few of his Cavs teammates spent some extra time working on their three-pointers during Tuesday’s practice session.

Game 2 is set to tip inside Quicken Loans Arena at 7:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday night. TNT, FOX Sports Ohio and FOX Sports Indiana will have live broadcast coverage. Let’s see if the Cavs can bounce back.
