Trail Blazers Handed a Major Injury Scare after Rodney Hood Leaves the Game against Lakers

Portland Trail Blazers starter Rodney Hood suffered one of the most dreaded injuries during the game against Los Angeles Lakers.

Hood went down during the game, holding his heel after taking down a rebound. The medical staff and players from both the sides surrounded him with a growing concern. The 27-year old seemed in severe pain as he walked straight into the locker room a few moments later.

Hood had already tweaked his Achillies Tendon in his left foot during their previous game against Sacramento Kings.

A few minutes after he left the court on Friday, the club confirmed that Hood has a torn Achillies Tendon in his left foot. By the sound of it, the injury might even go into the next season.

Entering the game, Hood was averaging 11.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game with a career-best .626 true shooting percentage. He has a significant place in the team after the likes of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. The injury will be a big blow to the team, coming just at when they were making good improvements.

The Achillies Heel injury might have a drastic affect on a players’ career and the Basketball community showered prayers for Hood’s fast recovery.
