Rodney Hood won’t play Sunday vs. Bulls

Cavs Rodney Hood

The Cleveland Cavaliers host the Chicago Bulls on Sunday and Cavs shooting guard Rodney Hood will not play.

Hood is dealing with an Achilles injury, as the sharpshooter complained about having soreness in his left Achilles on Friday.

In 32 games this season for the Cavs, Rodney Hood is averaging 12.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. The 26-year-old is shooting 44.4 percent from the field, 36.7 percent from beyond the 3-point line and 88.9 percent from the free-throw line.

Hood’s name has come up in trade rumors lately. Cleveland is in rebuild mode and there could be a contender out there who wants Hood. When he’s healthy, Hood is a guy who can create his own shot off the dribble and hit shots from the perimeter.

The Cavs acquired Rodney Hood from the Utah Jazz at the 2018 February trade deadline. His rough postseason showing lowered his free agent market and that’s why he re-signed with the Cavs on a one-year deal worth $3.47 million in the offseason.

Cleveland has a record of 8-25 on the season, placing them at 14th place in the Eastern Conference. There’s obviously plenty of time before now and the end of the season to make a change and turn things around.
