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. Jan 23 - 7:16 PM

Jordan Hill hit 7-of-14 shots for 15 points and 13 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans.

Hill might be playing better than any other Laker and is averaging 15.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 0.8 steals on 53 percent shooting over his last five. Some more blocks would be nice (0.4), but he's capable of a double-double every time out right now.
Jan 21 - 11:24 PM

Jordan Hill double-doubled with a steal and block on Friday, hitting 8-of-15 shots to finish with 16 points and 11 rebounds against the Jazz.

Hill is back on track and the knee issue has gone away for the time-being. The question has always been whether or not he can handle more than 25 mpg, so owners will want to watch him closely, but for now he appears to be on the right track again.
Jan 17 - 2:05 AM

Jordan Hill picked up some extra playing time with 32 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 20 points with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block.

Big men have been feasting on the Cavs frontcourt these days, but Hill was coming around in his previous five with 14.6 points and 7.8 boards per game. His days of logging 32.2 minutes per game like he did back in November are over, but he's still a solid big man to own in standard leagues.
Jan 16 - 1:21 AM

Jordan Hill (knee) is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Cavs.

He was probable heading into this one despite missing Wednesday's practice, and it looks like his hyper-extended knee is not going to be an issue moving forward. Go ahead and get him active for a favorable matchup against the Cavs.

Jordan Hill (hyper-extended knee) is probable for Thursday against the Cavs.

He did miss practice on Wednesdayand there's a decent chance his minutes are held in check considering how often he's hurt. Plus, Tarik Black could knock Hill's minutes down a tad. Hill gets a nice matchup, so he's still in play in standard leagues. He's not going to be as great as he was in the first few weeks, though.
Jan 14 - 3:07 PM

Jordan Hill may have hyperextended his knee in Tuesday's game against the Heat according to coach Byron Scott, but he won't have an MRI until he sees how it feels in the morning.

This could be a huge blow for the Lakers should he miss any time but we should know more about Hill's status on Wednesday. Coach Scott didn't say who would start for Hill if he's forced to sit out, but Tarik Black has emerged for the Lakers and is worth a look as a speculative add in deeper leagues. Stay tuned.
Jan 14 - 1:11 AM

Jordan Hill double-doubled with 23 and 14 in Monday's loss to the Blazers but did not have any steals or blocks.

Hill hit 10-of-15 shots and added two assists, so on the whole this was a pretty good line. Field goal percentage has been an issue and owners would love it if he continued playing closer to the basket.
Jan 6 - 1:59 AM

Jordan Hill made only 1-of-7 shots in Sunday's home victory, playing 23 minutes to finish with four points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

The rebounds and defensive stats are nice, but fantasy owners have to be disappointed with Hill's mediocre 46.7 percent shooting, down from 54.9 percent last season. The root of the problem is that he's attempting 42.7 percent of his shots from mid-range, and he's unlikely to score with greater efficiency unless he starts moving closer to the hoop.
Jan 5 - 12:10 AM

Jordan Hill finished Sunday's loss to the Suns with nine points on 3-of-11 shooting, a season-low one rebound, two assists, one steal, zero blocks and three turnovers in 22 minutes.

The Suns give up the fourth-most rebounds to their opponents (44.9) and this dud sums up a disappointing month for Hill. Thus far in December he's averaged 26.8 minutes, shot 45.9 percent from the field, averaged 6.6 rebounds, and scored double-digit points in seven out of 14 games. Those numbers are all way down from November but fantasy owners should hang tight in the expectation of a bounce-back in 2015.

Jordan Hill had a season-high four blocks in Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors, adding four points, six boards and one assist in just 18 minutes.

Owners shouldn't panic too much about the minutes, as the Lakers opted to play a little smaller to match up with the Warriors. Hill is still a double-double threat whenever he gets the minutes and we'll give him a pass for this performance.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 01:32:00 AM

Jordan Hill nearly double-doubled vs. the Kings on Sunday, finishing with eight points, nine boards and one assist in 33 minutes.

He recently recovered from an illness and was tasked with containing DeMarcus Cousins during Sunday's game, so he'll be better than this on most nights. Hill remains a must-own player moving forward, and he'll be a nightly double-double threat as long as he continues to see more than 30 minutes per game.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 11:07:00 PM

Jordan Hill (illness) played 21 minutes on Friday against the Thunder, but managed just 10 points with two rebounds and one block.

Hill has played well enough to be in many lineups this season, but owners may want to get him on the bench until he gets fully on track.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 02:36:00 AM

Jordan Hill is starting against the Thunder.

He is on a minutes limit tonight, so there might be a few more minutes of Robert Sacre. Hill is worth owning in standard leagues.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 10:34:00 PM

Jordan Hill (illness) is expected to start against the Thunder on Friday.

He is expected to have a limitation on his minutes. Hill has been sick for the past two days and was not at shootaround. His owners will want to check back and may want to consider him benching him considering this is a late game. If he's out, Robert Sacre will likely pick up his minutes while Ed Davis may also play a little more.
