Byron Scott criticized the Lakers big men after their loss to the Thunder on Sunday, saying that "all our bigs got pretty much outplayed tonight."
"I guess you got to get in the weight room. Some of it is a mindset. You have to understand who you’re playing against and have to be aggressive as well. If they’re hitting you, you have to fight fire with fire sometimes." Scott's tough-guy stance has worn down as the long season has moved forward, but Jordan Hill once again accepted accountability. It would be nice if some of his teammates followed suit. Mar 2 - 12:17 PM

Jordan Hill logged a double-double in a 101-108 loss to the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 14 points with 12 boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

It was actually his first made 3-pointer of his career (he was 0-of-12 prior to tonight's game), but his owners shouldn't expect to see that happen again anytime soon. Since returning from a hip injury that cost him five games on the sidelines, Hill has averaged 13.2 points, 7.8 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.8 blocks per game, and it's clear that the All-Star break did wonders for his tired legs. If you need a big man, Hill is more than worth a look, especially as his minutes start to ramp up again.
Mar 1 - 10:02 PM

Jordan Hill hit 7-of-12 shots for 16 points, five rebounds, two steals and a block in 27 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Robert Sacre failed to even score as the starting center, and it makes little sense that Hill isn't starting. He's averaging 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, a steal and a block since returning from a hip injury, and is worth a look if you need a big man (and you might if you own Jusuf Nurkic, who went down an ankle injury tonight).
Feb 26 - 1:53 AM

Jordan Hill (hip) returned to action on Friday against the Nets, scoring 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

Hill was a winner at the deadline by not being traded, though he wasn't really a given to get sent elsewhere. He should mostly survive the random rotations, but with the Lakers playing for a draft pick these days they may choose to be ultra-cautious with him.
Feb 21 - 5:19 AM

Jordan Hill (hip) will come off the bench in his return to the lineup on Friday against the Nets.

The Lakers will start Jordan Clarkson, Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black and Robert Sacre. Hill looked terrific just before his hip flexor strain, scoring 26 points with 12 rebounds on Jan. 29. He's already proven he's capable of being a strong fantasy asset with minutes in the mid-20s, so he's worth a look in standard leagues.
Feb 20 - 2:36 PM

Jordan Hill (hip) was again able to go through a full practice on Thursday, and he is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Nets.

Hill will likely return to the starting lineup, which will send either Tarik Black or Robert Sacre back to the bench. If Hill was dropped in your league, now would be the time to get him as he's averaging 12.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game on the season.
Feb 19 - 4:18 PM

Jordan Hill (hip) went through practice on Wednesday and is expected to play on Friday.

He suffered a strained hip flexor on Feb. 1 and has been out since. Hill will likely move back into the starting lineup, which will push Robert Sacre back to the bench. Hill put up a 26-point game in his last effort before the injury, so he is worth grabbing in standard leagues now that he is somewhat healthy.
Feb 18 - 4:09 PM

Jordan Hill stated during a recent interview that his preference would be to remain with the Lakers.

"I want to be here [in Los Angeles]," said Hill. "I want to be a in a steady place I call home." Hill is currently in an ideal situation playing for the tanking Lakers, and he is averaging career-highs in points (12.3) and rebounds (8.0). If he is moved before the deadline, it will open up more minutes for Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, and Tarik Black, and his value would likely take a hit.
Feb 17 - 6:17 PM

Jordan Hill (strained hip flexor) has joined the Lakers in Milwaukee but he's not expected to return until mid-February.

Hill was given a two-week timetable after being diagnosed with a Grade-1 strain, but it's encouraging to see him traveling with the team. Carlos Boozer has played well as a fill-in starter in Hill's absence, with more minutes also available for Robert Sacre and Ed Davis.
Feb 4 - 6:36 PM

Jordan Hill has been diagnosed with a grade 1 hip flexor strain, and he is expected to be sidelined for two weeks.

With Hill sidelined, Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, Robert Sacre, and Tarik Black will all be in line for extended minutes with Boozer and Davis offering the most upside out of the group.

Jordan Hill (hip, quad) is flying back to Los Angeles to be examined by team doctors and the team has said he has "shown little if any improvement."

He said he could be out a couple days at least, but it would appear he's not going to play this week. The Lakers have three more games on their road trip before they will return home to face the Nuggets on Tuesday Feb. 10. With Hill out, Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, Robert Sacre and Tarik Black should all benefit. Boozer is probably the only player worth owning in standard leagues despite his lower upside.
Feb 2 - 5:06 PM

Jordan Hill (hip) said that he's dealing with more of a hip flexor injury than the initially reported right quad strain, and that he will be out a couple days or a couple weeks.

A couple days and couple weeks are obviously a big difference, so we'll be waiting for an official update from the Lakers' medical staff after he is re-evaluated on Monday. Should he be forced into an extended absence, Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, Tarik Black, and Ryan Kelly will all benefit with Boozer offering the most upside out of the group. Stay tuned.

Jordan Hill left Sunday's game against the Knicks with a right quad strain and he will not return.

Hill will finish Sunday's game with just two points (1-of-3 shooting) and five rebounds, and he will be re-evaluated on Monday. We'll be sure to pass along updates as they become available, but Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, and Ryan Kelly will all have some increased opportunity for as long as Hill is out.
Feb 1 - 2:41 PM

Jordan Hill scored a season-high 26 points against the Bulls on Thursday with 12 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 41 minutes.

The Lakers gambled here with all of this playing time for Hill, but he looked great in the second overtime. Hill has become a bigger part of the offense in his last 13 games with 12.9 attempts per game from the field, averaging 14.6 points, 8.7 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks on 51.2 percent shooting. He should be owned in all leagues following this game.
Jan 30 - 1:47 AM

Jordan Hill will start at power forward on Friday, sending Ed Davis to the bench.

Hill will shift over to the power forward spot, and Robert Sacre will start at center tonight. It's not clear if this is matchup based, or if head coach Byron Scott has soured a bit on Davis' play. However, Davis' minutes have been trending down lately, so if you'd like to send him to the waiver wire with the move to the bench, we wouldn't blame you.
