Rodney Hood

Rodney Hood went down to the floor after running into a screen.

The Trail Blazers didn’t need this injury at this moment.

Rodney Hood, who has been a revelation for Portland in the second round of the playoffs, was helped to the locker room after running into a screen in the third quarter on Sunday.

It appeared Hood’s knee buckled when he ran into the screen and he went down on the floor appearing to be in severe pain.

Hood had to be assisted to the locker room with two men at his side as the Nuggets held a 60-55 lead in the third quarter.

The former Jazz and Cavaliers forward has been great in this series, scoring at least 14 points in five of six games and 25 in a Game 6 win.

Update: Hood is questionable to return with a left knee hyperextension.
