Rodney Hood leaves game 30 seconds before it starts

New, comments

Donovan Mitchell gets his first start.

NBA: Utah Jazz-Media Day Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Rodney Hood left the court 30 seconds before the game started forcing Donovan Mitchell into his first start of his career. In what was an odd situation, the referees were about to tip it off, but Rodney Hood walked off the court. Rodney Hood does have a history with pregame jitters. Hopefully the Utah Jazz starting shooting is okay as the Utah Jazz are already down Exum and Neto.

[UPDATE 7:15PM]

Rodney Hood left the game with gastric distress. He is still in his warmups.

[2nd UPDATE 7:24PM]

Rodney Hood has checked back.
