Duke's Rodney Hood Suffers Achilles Injury in USA Basketball Practice

Nobody seems to know how bad the injury is, but this would hurt immensely if he misses any of the season. They said they don’t think it’s season-ending or anything, but we obviously play them very early on December 3, so this could be worth keeping an eye on if it lingers…

Player injuries are always tragic news. I hope it’s not serious and that he is able to fully recover and resume playing. That’s a tough blow for the USA team and for Duke depending on what the duration of the impact is.

Nobody wants to see any injuries, especially in something like a USA basketball practice where guys are just there to compete and showcase their skills against the other top players in the country.
