(Portland, OR) -- Rodney Hood will be playing, not sitting. The Blazers acquired Hood in a trade with the Cavaliers over the weekend. Blazers coach Terry Stotts said when Hood is cleared, he would play. He arrived in town yesterday for a physical and a crash course on learning the Portland system. Stotts did not elaborate on how the 26-year-old forward would fit into the rotation. He was averaging 12.2 points this season with Cleveland.
