Jordan Hill played 25 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday with six points, 11 boards, two assists and four fouls.
He probably would have seen a few more minutes, but the Lakers were down 25 in the third quarter. Hill isn't going to be facing stiff competition from anyone, so he should get some opportunity. At the very worst, he should be able to post nice boards with some blocks here and there. Oct 30 - 3:14 AM

Jordan Hill scored seven points to go with 10 rebounds, one block, and one assist in 23 minutes on Tuesday against Houston.

He reportedly showed up late to the game, but it doesn't appear that he will get into any kind of trouble at the moment. The minutes were low tonight, but it was mainly due to the fact that the Rockets were running away with the game. Hill will be better on most nights so owners should not be concerned and should feel comfortable plugging him into their lineups.

Jordan Hill is dealing with a strained neck and could miss some preseason action.

He might sit on Wednesday and/or on Friday. Hill's injury is not considered serious and we'd expect him to be ready for the opener on Tuesday. He's a fine late-round sleeper.

Jordan Hill said he wouldn't have been back with the Lakers if they retained coach Mike D'Antoni.

"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. Why would I come back?" Hill was shuffled in and out of the lineup for D'Antoni, so this isn't a surprise. He is locked in as the starting center and is a great target in the later rounds. If he stays healthy, he could be a terrific asset.

Jordan Hill scored a preseason-high 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting vs. Phoenix on Tuesday, adding seven rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

Hill hasn't earned much hype this offseason but he's an excellent late-round fantasy option. As a taste of his upside, consider his stats after the All-Star-break last year: 12.8 points on 56.3 percent shooting, 8.6 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.3 blocks in just 24 minutes per game.

Jordan Hill scored 12 points with 14 boards and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

If he can play 28 minutes every night, Hill would put up massive fantasy value. The problem is that the wheels have fallen off a handful of times, so he's going to be a risky pick. Fantasy owners should certainly consider him late and just cross the injury bridge when they get to it.
Oct 17 - 1:12 AM

Jordan Hill double-doubled on Monday with 10 points, 11 boards and one turnover in 19 minutes.

He's going to be a nice option in the paint for the Lakers and just needs to stay healthy. Hill kind of maxed out at around 25 minutes per game, but he could still have enough value to draft in most fantasy leagues. If you need a big man late, he could be your guy.
Oct 7 - 1:00 AM

Jordan Hill was in the first unit at practice on Wednesday.

He had some major issues playing significant minutes last season, but he will likely get the first crack at starting. Hill would be a very valuable asset in fantasy leagues as a bench big man as long as he stays healthy. It makes sense to draft him late and ride him until an injury derails him.
Oct 1 - 4:37 PM

Byron Scott said he envisions Jordan Hill will be "getting good minutes at center" this season.

The Lakers are somehow going to try and figure out what to do behind Hill at center. Hill didn't really show he's capable of playing more than 25 minutes over the course of the season, but he'll still be on the radar in fantasy leagues in the later rounds due to lack of competition. Plus, Hill finished strong in April with averages of 16.6 points, 10.1 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 steals in 29.0 minutes per game.

Jordan Hill has agreed to a two-year, $18 million deal with the Lakers.

It's a fairly expensive deal at $9 million per, but at least it's just for two seasons. Hill had a tough time staying court last season and his conditioning capped his minutes per game a bit. Still, the Lakers needed size and depth, so it's a good fit.
Jul 11 - 6:15 PM

The Lakers, Mavericks and Rockets are expected to be interested in unrestricted free agent Jordan Hill.

He spent two and a half years with the Rockets and about the same time with the Lakers over the last three seasons. Hill's minutes were held in check due to conditioning and injuries with the Lakers last year and he'll likely remain in the high teens for minutes as a backup big man.
Jun 30 - 11:23 AM

Jordan Hill had 18 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and two blocks on 7-of-13 shooting as the Lakers beat the resting Spurs in Wednesday's finale.

The Lakers weren't very good at tanking over the last week, and got a very balanced attack in the win. Nick Young scored 16, Kendall Marshall had 15 points and 11 assists, Jodie Meeks scored 14, Ryan Kelly scored 12, Wes Johnson had 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Robert Sacre and Jordan Farmar chipped in with 10 a piece. We think we speak for all Lakers fans when we say that it's finally over. Many of these guys came through for fantasy owners tonight, but the minutes were too evenly divided for any of them to really go nuts.
Apr 16 - 10:16 PM

Jordan Hill had easy buckets all night against the Jazz on Monday, finishing with 21 points, six boards and one block in 24 minutes.

The Jazz have been torched by big men all season and Hill kept his momentum going. In his last five, he averaged 16.6 points, 8.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks on 58.7 percent from the field. He'll be a must-start player against the Spurs on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 11:58 PM

Jordan Hill (migraine) double-doubled with 10 points and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes during Sunday's loss to the visiting Grizzlies.

Hill added three assists, one steal and two blocks, and the defensive stats are a nice sight -- even as a starter he's only averaging 0.4 steals and 1.0 blocks this season. With Pau Gasol (vertigo) done for the year and Chris Kaman (calf) questionable to return, Hill should remain a solid option.
Apr 14 - 12:24 AM

Jordan Hill is suffering from a migraine but he's still expected to play on Sunday.

If he is unexpectedly ruled out, Robert Sacre will start for the Lakers' decimated frontcourt. The Lakers' game tips off at 9:30 ET so we won't have to wait long for official confirmation of his status.
