Lakers' Jordan Hill misses second straight practice, probable for Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Lakers center Jordan Hill missed his second consecutive practice Thursday with an upper respiratory infection, but is still considered probable for Friday's game against the Thunder. 

Hill, who is averaging 12.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game, has not missed any time due to the illness. 

If Hill was unable to go, Robert Sacre would likely get the start for Los Angeles. 


Lakers C Jordan Hill doubles up in win vs. Spurs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) Lakers center Jordan Hill scored 14 points on 7 of 16 shooting while grabbing 10 rebounds in his team's 112-110 overtime win over the Spurs Friday.

Hill racked up six straight double-doubles at one point in November but hadn't managed the feat in four straight games before coming through Friday, marking the second time this season he's doubled up against the Spurs. He also kicked in one assist, one block and one steal in 35 minutes in the win. The Lakers will square off with the Timberwolves Sunday.


Lakers' Jordan Hill doubles up on Mavericks


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Lakers center Jordan Hill posted a double-double against the Mavericks. 

Hill shot a perfect 7-7 from the field. He also managed to hit both his free throws, finishing with 16 points. Hill was active on the boards, pulling down 10 rebounds. He added two assists and a block. 


Lakers C Jordan Hill doubles up vs. Spurs Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2014) Lakers center Jordan Hill scored 10 points on 4 of 13 shooting while grabbing 11 rebounds in his team's 93-80 loss to the Spurs Friday.

Hill has delivered three double-doubles in the last five games and has managed to haul in at least 10 rebounds five times this season. It wasn't all great for the center though, as his 30.8 shooting percentage was his worst since going 2 for 7 in each of the first games of the season. He also failed to record any assists, steals or blocks in 28 minutes. He's set to face the Warriors Sunday.


Jordan Hill's fast start seems sustainable


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Jordan Hill has played a big role for the Lakers early this season, and is putting up the best numbers of his career so far. Fantasy owners might be concerned that he can't keep this up, but as I explained at the Fantasy Basketball Today blog Wednesday, Hill is in a pretty good spot right now:

"Hill had never played more than 21 minutes per game this season, but the Lakers really don't have any choice but to play him 30-plus per game. That shouldn't change moving forward, which is a good sign for Hill's value. His per-36 minute numbers are nearly identical to last season, so there isn't really anything unsustainable about Hill's play so far."

Hill has been a per-minute dynamo for years, so it's good to see him getting the chance to prove himself in a bigger role. Still, you probably drafted Hill late with hope he could provide some depth, so he makes sense as a trade chip if you need to shore up another spot on the roster. 


Lakers announce lineup; Ronnie Price upgraded to probable


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) The Lakers announced their starting lineup for Tuesday's season opener against the Rockets. It will be Jeremy Lin, Kobe Bryant, Wesley Johnson, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill. The team also announced Ronnie Price (knee) has been upgraded to probable.

Lakers forward Jordan Hill will play Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill will play Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles Daily News

There was some speculation prior to the game that Hill would be held out due to a sore neck. The issue doesn't seem serious, and Hill is expected to play Wednesday night. 


Lakers forward Jordan Hill dealing with sore neck


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill could miss the next two preseason games, according to the Los Angeles Times

Hill is dealing with a sore neck. The injury isn't expected to be serious, and the team probably wants to make sure Hill is ready for the regular season. 


Lakers' Jordan Hill thriving under new staff


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill said he probably would not have returned to the club had Mike D'Antoni been retained, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

"If Mike was here, I wouldn’t be back," Hill said. "That’s the way it was. No disrespect to Mike, but apparently I didn’t fit his system." Hill also admitted he had to refocus his efforts during the offseason. By cutting alcohol out of his diet, Hill lost 13 pounds, and feels as though he has more energy. "Now I feel really, really good," he said. "I can run and down more often. My wind is back. My body feels good. I feel like I could go for days."

Coach Byron Scott seems to be happy with the improvements, saying Hill can put up "career numbers again this year." 


Byron Scott getting close to finalizing starting five


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Lakers coach Byron Scott told the Los Angeles Daily News Wednesday he has penciled in four of the five spots for the team's starting lineup, with only the small forward spot left the fill.

Scott plans to start Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill together this season, with Wesley Johnson or Nick Young being considered for the small forward spot. That means rookie Julius Randle and newly acquired guard Jeremy Lin will come off the bench, and he is leaning toward bring Nick Young off the bench as well.


Jordan Hill signs two-year deal with Lakers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Free agent forward Jordan Hill signed a two-year, $18 million contract to stay with the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports Friday. The deal will give the Lakers a team option in the second year of the contract. Hill averaged 9.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game over 72 games last season. 

Jordan Hill puts up another monster line


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill continued Thursday his strong play since his return from a knee injury, as he matched his career-high in scoring yet again in a 108-105 loss to the Bucks.

Hill scored 28 points in just 31 minutes of action, on 13 of 17 shooting. He added 16 rebounds for his second double-double in four games since returning from injury. He added a steal and turned the ball over once in the loss.

Hill is averaging 26.3 minutes per game since his return, thanks to an illness which has Pau Gasol sidelined. He is averaging 18.5 points, 12.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in that four-game span. 


Pau Gasol will not travel


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) A bout with vertigo sidelined Lakers' center Pau Gasol Tuesday, and Wednesday the team website reported that Gasol would not travel to Minnesota or Milwaukee. 

The illness is at least severe enough to keep him in L.A. for the next two games, meaning more playing time for Jordan Hill, Robert Sacre and Chris Kaman

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill, who was ejected his last time out, bounced back with a career-high 28 points in a 103-94 win over the Magic.

Hill shot 9 of 15 from the floor, and 10 of 13 from the free throw line. He completed a double-double with 13 boards, four of which came from the offensive end of the glass. He also chipped in with one block while logging 33 minutes of game action. He is averaging 18.5 points and 13.5 rebounds in his first two games back from a knee injury.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill made his return from a knee injury Friday, but was ejected with 2:14 remaining in a 117-107 loss to the Wizards.

Hill, along with Nick, got involved in an altercation with Drew Gooden late in the fourth quarter. Gooden and Hill were both ejected. Hilll, who made his first appearance since Feb. 28, scored nine points on 4 of 7 shooting, and grabbed 14 boards while logging 27 minutes off the bench.

Jordan Hill slated to return from eight-game absence


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill will be available to play Friday night against the Wizards, head coach Mike D'Antoni told ESPN Los Angeles.

Jordan Hill, Nick young getting close


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) The Lakers' injury woes have lingered all season long, but they do appear to be getting close to having two rotation players back in the fold.

Guard Nick Young (knee) and forward Jordan Hill (knee) are targeting returned this weekend, either Friday against the Wizards or Sunday against the Magic, after both took part in practice Tuesday. Both players have already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, however.

"They're almost ready to play," coach Mike D'Antoni told the Los Angeles Daily News. "The injuries aren't too bad. I think Nick is further ahead than Jordan Hill just by looking at them. You can't tell if they're taking it easy because they're cautious."

Young has missed 14 of the last 15 games due to a left knee injury, while Hill has missed seven due to a right knee injury.

 


Jordan Hill sits out seventh straight, as expected


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) As expected, Lakers forward Jordan Hill sat out Friday's contest against the Spurs. Hill, who was initially viewed as doubtful heading into the game, has now missed seven games in a row due to a knee injury.

Hill has yet to play in the month of March, but was hardly playing a big role prior to this injury. He finished February averaging 7.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 11 games. His next chance to play will come Wednesday against San Antonio again.

Jordan Hill, Nick Young out Thursday, as expected


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jordan Hill not nearing a return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

It is not known when or how he suffered the injury, but it is not considered serious at this point.

Jordan Hill's role disappears without notice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Lakers forward Jordan Hill hardly saw the floor Tuesday against the Pacers, as he snapped his four-game double-digit scoring streak in a 118-98 loss.

Despite the Pacers' size advantage, Hill played just 10 minutes off the bench, second-lowest on the team. He scored just two points on 1 of 2 shooting with three rebounds, his least productive game since early February.

Hill's place in the rotation has been inconsistent all season long, and that is unlikely to change now that the team failed to find a taker for him at the trade deadline. Despite that, he is averaging a career-high 8.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game in 56 appearances.
