If so, hopefully it's Jamison at the 4 and Hill at the 5.

I really hope this isn't true, I would hope 'Antoni can adapt and change because our starters are old, they can't be playing in an 8 man rotation. I would also think Hill is a 'Antoni kind of player, all hustle, so I hope he stays in the rotation, he's been our most consistent bench player.

Hill is a valuable, hard-working player in any offense. The old Suns did not have a deep bench. Say what you want about our bench, but players like Blake, Duhon, Jamison, Ebanks, Meeks, Hill and even Sacre are useful. Hill would play on any team, under any coach. Rebounds, hustles, plays D, has improved his offense too. There is nothing to not like about this guy. He could even start if someone gets hurt and he'd do well.

16MPG 7 PPG 5.7 RPG (3.4OFF) & 1.7PF

That's hustle & energy. He's easily the most important bench player for us. Idk but i feel more confortable him shooting that J than his post moves. Points it the points should be putbacks imo

Without Jordan our bench would be scary bad right now. His energy and hustle is awesome to watch. He'd be a double double guy if he had enough minutes. I can easily see him put up 10/10 with 30+ minutes.

He's a warrior. If Gerald Wallace's nickname wasn't already Crash, I'd suggest JHill's nickname be that

Honestly, I wouldn't mind throwing him the ball down low in the post. He doesn't look half bad.

IIRC D'Antoni played Hill sporadicly when he was in NY ...

@Lakers

Jordan Hill sprained his right wrist in tonight’s game. He’ll get treatment the next 3 days. Listed as probable for Friday.

He's been the third best player of this team so far this season ... which is good for him but bad news for the team expectations ...

His energy and hustle are much needed ...what a boost from the bench

Loved seeing him make some jumpers today...I know he has it in him, his jumper was solid at Arizona. Not sure what happened to it but hopefully it comes back.

I really dig Jordan Hill as a player. I for one liked that we got him in the trade last season as he was already a player I had been following somewhat in Houston. He is such a hustler and gives his all. Love his energy.

Hill is definitely is a double-double guy as some have suggested, or would be if he was a starter - he already essentially was to some degree at Houston when he was getting starters minutes. To be honest, it doesn't seem ridiculous to me to possibly try Hill as the starter at the 4 and move Pau to the bench as an impact scorer - similar to what happened with Lamar. It might not happen, but it could even improve the team? Dual benefit as it makes D12 more of a low-post scoring option (as Hill wouldn't need, nor get plays run for him) and Pau would give us legitimate, consistent and volume scoring off the bench....

If Hill goes out of the Lakers Rotation as some are suggesting, MDA has rocks in his head....

Hill is the Lakers 6th Man right now :jam2:

I love this guy. The whole energy of the team picks up when he steps on the court. Hes still grimacing quite a bit during stoppage of play and getting it worked on...I dont know how hes gonna make it through the season. Howard played through the same thing for a few weeks in ORL and we saw how it turned out

at one point (I think it was Dwight's 3 point play in the 4th) I saw both JHill and Dwight both ferociously fight and shoving for rebounds... awesome sight. Something we've not seen in a long long time.

Also, seeing JH go after Oneal for his cheap shot was a cool little moment...
