After experiencing discomfort in his left heel during this morning’s shootaround, Rodney Hood was examined by the Utah Jazz medical staff and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing this afternoon at the University of Utah. The MRI results showed inflammation in Hood’s left foot. As a result, Hood’s left foot will be placed in a boot and he will continue to participate in treatment, conditioning and restricted weight training for approximately one week at which time he will be reevaluated.
