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.
Apr 13 - 7:50 PM

Jordan Hill scored 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting with 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals in the Lakers' 112-95 loss to the Warriors on Friday.

Hill is doing what everybody hoped he might be able to do all season, if not for knee limitations and Mike D'Antoni's magically changing lineups. It looks like he'll be fun to own for the rest of the year, but we'd be lying if we said we're not crossing all sorts of fingers and toes.
Apr 12 - 2:59 AM

Jordan Hill was the lone bright spot against the Clippers during a 120-97 loss on Sunday, scoring a team-high 22 points with nine boards and two steals in 29 minutes.

Robert Sacre can't really defend a big man, so it was up to Hill to hold down the fort inside. That obviously didn't work, but at least Hill got his on the offensive side. He should hold very nice value as long as Pau Gasol (illness) is out and should be a mid-round guy while Chris Kaman (calf) is on the shelf. In other words, he's a must-own player until further notice.
Apr 6 - 6:31 PM

Jordan Hill started at center in Friday's loss to the Mavs, scoring 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 31 minutes.

As long as Pau Gasol (vertigo) appears to be headed toward a shutdown then Hill has a decent shot at being a worthwhile gamble. He's red hot right now so hopefully if you pick him up you haven't missed out on the good stuff.
Apr 5 - 2:22 AM

Jordan Hill scored 18 points on 5-of-15 shooting (8-of-10 FTs) with 15 rebounds and four blocks in 29 minutes on Wednesday against the Kings.

Congratulations if you had the stones to start Hill tonight as Mike D'Antoni chose to let DeMarcus Cousins have his way down low in lieu of a small lineup. Unfortunately, big-minute outings for Hill are usually followed up by periods of rest because of his knee, but it's hard to tell owners to outright avoid him after some of his recent explosions. Just be sure to check that game log before adding him. Kent Bazemore added 14 points on 6-of-18 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and two threes in the loss.
Apr 3 - 2:00 AM

Jordan Hill (illness) will start against the Kings on Wednesday night.

He had a stomach problem and missed some of the pre-game activities, but Hill is going to be in the starting lineup. The big man received a DNP-CD on Tuesday, but Chris Kaman (calf) and Pau Gasol (illness) being out should get the U of A product some significant minutes tonight.
Apr 2 - 9:59 PM

Jordan Hill is dealing with an upset stomach on Wednesday and is hopeful to play against the Kings.

Well, when it rains, it pours. The Lakers are already without Chris Kaman (calf) and Pau Gasol (vertigo), so losing Hill would make them extremely shorthanded. This season can't end soon enough for the Lakers.
Apr 2 - 9:26 PM

Jordan Hill will start against the Kings on Wednesday.

He'll join Ryan Kelly, Kendall Marshall, Kent Bazemore and Jodie Meeks in the first unit. Hill got the dubious DNP-CD on Tuesday and he should get a lot of run tonight. He's not a completely safe start, but his upside could pay off.
Apr 2 - 8:40 PM

Jordan Hill said that he wouldn't want to return for the Lakers next season if he didn't have a larger and steadier role in the rotation.

"Of course not," said Hill, after picking up a DNP-CD on Tuesday. "Who would?" That essentially ties his future with the Lakers to Mike D'Antoni's status as head coach, and it will be very interesting to see which direction L.A. takes with only three fully guaranteed contracts on the books for 2014-15.
Apr 2 - 1:38 PM

Jordan Hill was a DNP-CD on Tuesday night vs. the Blazers.

There was a chance his minutes were going to go south with Chris Kaman in the starting lineup and how Hill played just 18 minutes on Sunday, but a DNP was surprising. Hill has battled through injuries and maybe he just got some rest on a back-to-back set. If you want to cut him because of this, it makes a lot of sense.
Apr 2 - 1:10 AM

Jordan Hill fell out of the picture vs. Phoenix on Sunday, scoring six points and grabbing three rebounds in 18 minutes.

He started at PF but quickly took a backseat to Chris Kaman (28 points). Hill has now averaged 8.0 points in the two games since his 28-point outburst on Thursday, largely because Mike D'Antoni has only given him 21 minutes per game. Owners will have to weigh his upside in a four-game week against the risk inherent in D'Antoni's rotations, to which Pau Gasol's possible return from vertigo adds another layer of uncertainty.
Mar 31 - 12:22 AM

Jordan Hill was outstanding during Thursday's 108-105 loss to the Bucks, matching his career-high 28 points with 16 boards, one steal and one turnover on 13-of-17 from the field.

He was awesome on the offensive glass with a career high nine on that end and he only committed two fouls. Hill was a colossal letdown on Tuesday night due to foul trouble, so he put that one behind him. Hill has busted out numerous times during the course of the season, but it doesn’t take long for that value to dissipate. That said, the bottom line is fantasy owners have to pick him up with two massive lines in his last three.
