Jordan Hill will be available to play for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.
Hill will likely come off the bench today, but with season averages of 12.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game as a reserve, he should be able to put up some low-end stats for owners in deep leagues. He'll likely take away some minutes from Tarik Black and Robert Sacre. Mar 29 - 2:11 PM

Jordan Hill will be a healthy scratch for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

Hill has spent the past two games on the sidelines despite being perfectly healthy, so it appears head coach Byron Scott has fully embraced the tanking concept. Look for Ryan Kelly to start with Ed Davis seeing some extended minutes off the bench. Both Kelly and Davis have been playing well lately, so they're worth a look in deep leagues. Byron Scott said he may insert Hill back into the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. Brooklyn or Monday's game vs. Philadelphia, so we'll be watching for that. Stay tuned.

Jordan Hill said he has no issues with the Lakers decision to sit him for the next four or five upcoming games.

While the Lakers openly tank, Hill is toeing the company line when it comes to his benching. "I’m not playing for nothing," Hill said. "It’s a good time to get other guys a lot more minutes and get a feel of the game." Hill can be dropped while the Lakers experiment with younger players and Ryan Kelly, Ed Davis, and Tarik Black are all worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.

Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer are not expected to play against the Wolves on Wednesday night.

The pair is not expected to play for the next 4-5 games. Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly will get the start and are worth a look in deeper leagues. Hopefully, Ed Davis gets more run than 16 minutes like he did on Tuesday. Hill can be dropped in most leagues.

Jordan Hill (tanking) will likely sit out for the next four to five games so that the Lakers can evaluate their younger players.

Unreal. The tanking saga continues around the NBA, and this move will certainly draw some harsh criticism from around the league. Hill has been one of the better plays for the Lakers this season with averages of 12.3 points and 8.0 boards per game, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts to this. For what it's worth, Carlos Boozer will also sit out with Hill, meaning Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black, Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will handle the frontcourt duties for the Lakers until further notice. With fantasy playoffs in progress, Hill's owners should cut bait.

Jordan Hill (tanking) and Carlos Boozer (tanking) may not be in the rotation vs. the Thunder on Tuesday according to Lakers beat writer Mike Trudell.

Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black are starting in the frontcourt, so winning clearly isn't a priority tonight. The Lakers are going to get their younger guys some more playing time down the stretch, so Hill and Boozer's value will likely start to trend down. We will continue to monitor this story closely, but owners will want to see how things play out tonight before doing anything drastic.
Mar 24 - 8:16 PM

Jordan Hill will shift to the bench for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder, while Ryan Kelly will draw the start.

The Lakers are desperately trying to improve their chances in the draft lottery, so it's not surprising to see them give their younger players a longer look. Hill's owners should use a wait-and-see approach here, but it look his value could take a hit down the stretch. Ryan Kelly is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Mar 24 - 7:57 PM

Jordan Hill made 6-of-7 shots vs. the Sixers on Sunday, finishing L.A.'s home victory with 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists in only 20 minutes.

Hill was a combined 10-of-31 from the field in his three previous games, so it's nice to see him get going offensively vs. a Sixers defense which has been surprisingly stingy in recent weeks. Hill is a reliable late-round value but he lacks explosive upside while logging 25-28 minutes for coach Byron Scott. Owners should be on the lookout for potential lineup changes, too, as Scott has suggested that he'll tweak his rotations over L.A.'s final 10 games.
Mar 23 - 12:37 AM

Jordan Hill scored four points in an 80-73 loss to the Jazz on Thursday with 10 rebounds, one block and two steals in 28 minutes.

The minutes are there for Hill right now, but he's made a combined 10-of-31 (32.3 percent) from the field in his last three games. Hill does have some decent production in the other categories with at least nine rebounds in each of his last four, so he's a decent guy to own. The Lakers have a 4-4-4 schedule in the last three full weeks of the season.
Mar 20 - 1:12 AM

Jordan Hill continued to heat up with 15 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a rare 3-pointer in Monday's loss to the Warriors.

After providing droppable numbers for weeks he's back on the right side of the ledger and should be owned in most, if not all standard formats going forward.
Mar 17 - 1:40 AM

Jordan Hill had his best game of the second half on Thursday against the Knicks, scoring 19 points with 10 boards, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

He hasn't been inside the top 150 since the break, averaging 12.6 points, 7.3 boards, 0.5 blocks and 0.4 steals on 41.7 percent from the field in his previous 10 games. However, Hill has made at least 46 percent from the field in each of his last three and is starting to come around. He's worth owning in standard leagues thanks to a favorable schedule.
Mar 13 - 2:45 AM

The Lakers snapped their five-game losing streak on Tuesday behind Jordan Hill's team-high 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting, three rebounds, two assists and one block.

It's ironic that L.A. finally won on the same day they were officially eliminated from the playoffs, which was official once the Pelicans beat the Nets. Hill had 22 points and 13 boards in his first meeting with Detroit this season, and big men fare surprisingly well vs. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe -- the Pistons allow the second-most points and the sixth-most rebounds to opposing frontcourts.
Mar 11 - 1:13 AM

Jordan Hill was back in L.A.'s starting lineup on Sunday, logging 26 minutes to finish with eight points, seven rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Hill has flitted in and out of standard-league value all season but he's been lousy over the past eight games, with his 12.8 points and 7.9 rebounds undermined by poor percentages and a lack of defensive stats. His prospects are brighter while starting but there's too much uncertainty to wholeheartedly recommend Hill outside of deep leagues.
Mar 9 - 12:08 AM

Jordan Hill will replace Carlos Boozer in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. Dallas.

Both Boozer and Hill's numbers as a starter or a reserve are pretty similar, so there's not much fantasy implications with this news. Hill is the better guy to own in standard leagues, as he's much more capable of offering the occasional defensive stats. Boozer is more of a points and rebounds kind of guy, limiting his value to deeper leagues.
Mar 8 - 2:57 PM

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.
