Portland Trail Blazers guard Rodney Hood left Game 7 against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday with a hyperextended left knee and is questionable to return.

Hood was hurt in the third quarter when he stepped on the foot of Nuggets forward Torrey Craig as Craig was setting a pick. Hood went to the floor, was attended to and helped off the court and to the locker room with 5:35 remaining.

Hood, who had 25 points in Portland’s Game 6 win, had six points before leaving.

The Western Conference semifinal series is tied at three games apiece. The winner advances to the conference finals against the Golden State Warriors.
