Rodney Hood carried off with calf strain, will be re-evaluated Saturday

NBA, Utah Jazz

Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood had to be carried off the floor during the fourth quarter of Friday night's game in Minnesota.

The Jazz announced he suffered a left calf strain and will be re-evaluated Saturday.

Hood left the game, which coincided with his 25th birthday, after an awkward step through traffic and could put no weight on his left foot.

He led Utah in scoring with 20 points before departing as the Timberwolves beat the Jazz 100-97.
