Utah’s Rodney Hood Leaves Games With Knee Injury


Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood will be re-evaluated on Sunday after hyperextending his right knee late in the team’s 114-107 victory over the Magic.

Hood’s right knee buckled with no apparent contact while driving to the basket with 1:44 remaining in Saturday’s game, leaving him writhing on the court in obvious pain. He left the court with assistance from a trainer and teammate Boris Diaw, and was later seen walking in the locker room with his knee wrapped up. Various media reports indicate the Jazz are cautiously optimistic the injury won’t be long term.
