Christian Wood was recently in the news after one of his errant passes hit a spectator in the head, causing her a concussion. Robert Covington made his own observation after this woman demanded an unconditional apology from Wood.
It comes as no surprise that Christian Wood has been balling this year. The stretch big has been one of the league’s most consistent big man shooters in the recent past.
Wood has been lighting it up ever since a successful tenure with the Detroit Pistons in 2019-20. He signed a 3-year contract worth $40 million and change with the Rockets in the offseason that followed.
While Wood expected to play with Harden and co on a championship contender, he’s still been a great piece for the rebuilding Houston Rockets, providing much-needed spacing for their young guards.
Christian Wood hit an errant pass right in a woman’s head at full force during their loss to Charlotte. The Hornets fan has since demanded an apology from the big man for his inadvertent action, and for posting an Instagram story with emojis

Robert Covington seems to be making a lot of sense in this instance. While what happened with this spectator was unfortunate, she has no legal grounds for a lawsuit. All spectators agree to put themselves in harm’s way when they sit in the lower sections.
