2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wood will join the Pistons after Detroit picked him up off waivers. He flashed dominant abilities in the G League and during a very brief stint with New Orleans last season, going for 16.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 23.6 minutes across eight games with the Pelicans. Wood hasn't caught on with any of the four teams he's played for in his three-year career, but he continues to show big upside which landed him a roster spot with the Pistons for the 2019-20 season. He's averaged 17.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per 36 minutes in his career, and significant playing time could put Wood on the fantasy radar. He'll have a tough time seeing the court with Thon Maker, Sekou Doumbouya and Markieff Morris all vying for a backup role in the frontcourt. Wood is probable safe to go undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Double-double in Tuesday's loss
FDetroit Pistons
October 15, 2019
Wood went off for 19 points (7-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 106-86 loss to the 76ers.
Wood was much more effective than Thon Maker, who filled in as the starting center with Blake Griffin (hamstring) and Andre Drummond (rest) sidelined. Wood is helping his case to make the team with performances like this, though he's unlikely to hold much fantasy value even if he does remain on the roster.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Undrafted out of UNLV last season, Wood split his rookie year between the 76ers and their D-League affiliate in Delaware. In 17 games for the Sixers, Wood averaged 3.6 points and 2.2 rebounds per game, with most of his minutes coming in garbage time. He unsurprisingly fared much better in the D-League, posting averages of 17.3 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in just under 29 minutes per game. The 6-foot-11 Wood knocked down 52.9 percent of his field-goal attempts but struggled to convert at a meager 25.3 percent clip from beyond the arc. After signing a two-year deal with Charlotte in July, Wood has some short-term stability, though the second year of the contract is a team option. The 21-year-old will likely again spend considerable time in the D-League in 2016-17, where he'll look to prove he's developed enough to warrant a consistent bench role at the NBA level.
Wood surprisingly went undrafted this year even after averaging 15.7 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.3 steals, and 2.7 blocks in 33 minutes per game through 33 contests at UNLV. After not getting a call on draft night, Wood agreed to sign as a free agent with the Rockets. Wood measures at 6-11, 216 pounds and has a wingspan of 7-3. While the Rockets frontcourt will be stacked this season (Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Donatas Motiejunas, and Montrezl Harrell), general manager Daryl Morey must see something in the skinny, interesting prospect, and he could develop into something special if given the time. Until then, however, Wood doesn't appear to have much fantasy value this season unless a lot of the other options for the Rockets go down with an injury first.
