Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood was carried off the court after turning his ankle in the fourth quarter of Friday's game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Wolves were led by Wiggins' 21 points and five rebounds and Karl-Anthony Towns' 20 points and 10 rebounds.


Jazz beat writer Andy Larsen believed at first that Hood suffered a serious foot injury, but Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune gave Jazz fans a reason to let go a big sigh of relief when he reported that Hood didn't suffer an Achilles injury, per sources.

The first two came after Crawford committed a clear-path foul on him and the next three came after his point guard replacement, Jeff Teague, was called for fouling him on a three-point shot.

In one stretch, Crawford scored 11 of Minnesota's 13 points to help the Wolves build a 92-82 lead.

Then clutch Crawford struck again, burying a contested corner triple to put the Wolves up 98-96 with 27.5 seconds left.
