“It’s tough,” he said before a workout at UCSF Mission Bay. “But at this point, it’s lay everything on the line. If I’m a liability out there on either end, I think I’ll be doing a disservice to my team and I think I wouldn’t play. But I’ve just got to battle though it. Everybody is banged up at this point on both teams. Enes (Kanter) has been fighting his shoulder thing since the first round. If I can go out there and jog around and do whatever I can to help, I’m going to be out there.”

Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood is expected to be inactive until after the All-Star break, league sources told The Salt Lake Tribune on Saturday night. Hood has missed the past four games with a bone contusion on his right knee, coupled with a Grade 1 lateral collateral ligament (LCL) sprain, after sustaining a right knee hyperextension on Feb. 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the second time that Hood has sustained that type of injury this season, having originally injured it on Jan. 14 late in a victory against the Orlando Magic.

Jazz starting shooting guard Rodney Hood is expected to miss Saturday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets with a hyperextended right knee, but an MRI Hood underwent Thursday morning showed no structural damage, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned. Hood injured the knee making a move to the basket on Wednesday night in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the same knee Hood injured a few weeks ago against the Orlando Magic. Hood missed time following that game with a bone contusion. This latest injury is not believed to be as serious.
