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. Dec 21 - 11:07 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.
Dec 20 - 2:36 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.
Dec 19 - 10:34 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.
Dec 19 - 2:22 PM

Jordan Hill (upper respiratory infection) did not practice on Thursday, but he is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. OKC.

This is Hill's second consecutive missed practice, but he doesn't appear to be in jeopardy of missing Friday's game. Still, owners will want to check back for an official update closer to Friday's tip, and if he's unable to go, Robert Sacre, Ed Davis, and Carlos Boozer will help fill the void. Stay tuned.
Dec 18 - 3:24 PM

Jordan Hill (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

The Lakers are off until Friday, so Hill should be ready to go. He's been able to stay healthy this season despite the massive increase to 30.1 minutes per game. If for some reason he's not ready to play, the Lakers will have to come up with a patchwork group of Robert Sacre, Ed Davis and Carlos Boozer to help out.
Dec 17 - 3:32 PM

Jordan Hill is trying to expand on his range and wants to attempt more three-pointers.

Hill has only attempted 11 three-pointers in his six-year NBA career, but he's not letting that hurt his confidence. "If I took 100 3s right now, I would say I could make close to 50," Hill said. "Probably 40." Hill's targeted percentages would put him among the league leaders, but his fantasy owners will have to settle for his relatively inconsistent rebounding numbers until he decides to unleash his inner Kyle Korver.
Dec 11 - 1:21 PM

Jordan Hill's streak of quiet games continued on Sunday with eight points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 26 minutes, as the Lakers fell at home to the Pelicans.

Hill shot 4-of-11 in a tough matchup vs. New Orleans' frontcourt, but it's more concerning that he's averaging just 23.7 minutes over the Lakers' past three games. L.A.'s rotations are in flux as coach Byron Scott seeks a rotation that can sustainably play well, and fantasy owners should simply remain patient -- Hill has been far too reliable to fret about during a rough three-game stretch.
Dec 8 - 12:21 AM

Jordan Hill had just eight points, six rebounds and zero blocks in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

He had a monster line on Tuesday and this was simply an off night against Marcin Gortat. Owners should not panic, as Hill is having a career-year for the Lakers right now.
Dec 3 - 10:41 PM

Jordan Hill blew up for 22 points and 13 rebounds in the Lakers' 106-96 road win in Detroit on Tuesday, making 10-of-15 field goals with one assist and one steal.

He played 31 minutes and continues to be an impressive bargain for fantasy owners who grabbed him in the later rounds. The Pistons' frontcourt has been lenient defensively all season and Hill will face a stiffer test vs. the Wizards on Wednesday, but he's a must-start player until further notice.
Dec 2 - 10:53 PM

Jordan Hill is having a career-year with the Lakers this year, and he credits his development to Byron Scott giving him minutes.

"I got the minutes. This is what I've been waiting for," Hill said when discussing what has changed this season. "I knew once I got the minutes I was going to progress and show [the Lakers] what they bought." Hill is currently averaging 13.7 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 1.7 assists this season over 31.3 minutes of action, all career-highs. However, health will always going to be a concern, and coach Scott is playing with fire giving him regular minutes in the 30s, so owners may want to sell-high while the headlines are positive.
Nov 28 - 9:30 AM

Byron Scott singled out Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer for their inconsistent defensive effort.

"Offensively, he’s doing a [heck] of a job," Scott said. "Defensively, though, he still has the inconsistency we’re talking about. He’s one of our main culprits – him and [Carlos] Boozer. They both know they have to get better." Boozer has a +/- rating of -90 on the season, and Hill is at -92, whereas backup big man Ed Davis is at +6. Scott hasn't suggested that he'll start Davis at any point, but it seems like an obvious move to shore up L.A.'s awful interior defense.
Nov 23 - 10:42 AM

Jordan Hill scored 18 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 31 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He operated a little closer to the basket and coach Byron Scott has suggested he'd like to see Hill take less jumpers. He's worth owning in all leagues and hopefully the wheels don't fall off with his 30-plus minutes per game.
Nov 20 - 3:00 AM

Jordan Hill double-doubled with 18 points, 10 rebounds and one assist vs. the Hawks on Tuesday, making 8-of-17 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs in just 31 minutes of action.

The Hawks rank 28th in rebounding with a -3.8 differential and they're particularly poor on the offensive glass, where Carlos Boozer and Hill hurt them all night long. It was Hill's putback following an offensive rebound that gave L.A. a much-needed five-point cushion down the stretch, and he's quietly emerged as a top-100 fantasy value through L.A.'s first 11 games.
Nov 18 - 10:06 PM

Jordan Hill had a mediocre game against the Pelicans in a 109-102 loss on Wednesday with 10 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

It was his worst game in a while and yet he's still been able to log big minutes. Hill has played 31 minutes per night this season and has been a very solid big man for his fantasy owners. Keep him in your starting lineup.
