Sources: Lakers' Jordan Hill to be fit for lineup before season opener

Los Angeles Lakers forward Jordan Hill, the top frontline backup to All-Stars Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol, doesn't need surgery for a herniated disc in his back and will return to the lineup before the Oct. 30 season opener, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Hill, 25, will undergo core strength training on his back to rehabilitate the injury, sources said. He could return to practice within 10-14 days, but Hill's rehab process will be fluid depending on how his back responds to treatment, sources said.
The Lakers issued a statement Monday saying that Hill would be re-examined in seven days. The Lakers' back specialist, Dr. Robert Watkins, examined Hill after Hill played in an exhibition loss to Golden State on Sunday in Fresno, Calif.


Great news per WOJO. :jam2: :jam2: :jam2: :jam2:

I'd keep him out as long as needed though. (6wks).......I think we can get by the first two weeks of the season, but we definitely want him at 100% come playoff time.


Yes Sir!! :jam2:

at least jamison will get the preseason to play the 4 hopefully and show that thats where he belongs with ebanks at the 3 and meeks at the 2 not the bench!


Brown's gonna keep Jamison at the 3 and Ebanks at the 2, now with Clark at the 4 instead of Hill....watch. :man12:

Hill (back) said he hurt himself in second qtr of exhibition game Sunday. Played thru it, pain got worse. Needs rest, work on core strength


He's a warrior for playing through that, but I wish he told the team right when it happened.

That's fantastic news, but I can't lie, I'm still concerned. This type of injury comes back frequently for most players. Hard to be a hustle guy that bangs inside playing with all that effort and not reinjure it.

Power forward Jordan Hill quite likely will be the Lakers' most valuable bench player this season — and he was the one guy who really was going for it early in training camp. That's why it was such a relief for the Lakers that the herniated disc in Hill's back isn't so severe that he can't play through it.

It's not all bad for the Lakers if Hill, Jamison, Meeks and Steve Blake make it a veteran bench as long as the vets are hungry.

^^ I've been thinking the same thing.. When we got him via the Fish trade, I thought he was just a throw-in that would only play in garbage time. Evidently, I was very wrong. Maybe our scouts already knew he was better than what most thought, either way it's been a VERY pleasent surprise.

I wouldn't consider him our most important bench player. That's Jamison.

One, Jordan Hill being Marcus Banks makes zero sense. People here thought Banks was good, people wanted Banks, we never got him, he never turned into anything of note. People here knew pretty much nothing of Jordan Hill, we got him, had no expectations for him, most weren't even sure if he'd even see time on the court, and he ended up playing and surprising with his hustle and being a good pickup. He was signed back for relatively cheap because he wanted to stay here and win and in the short time he'd been in camp and a game he looked really good. How is that anything like Marcus Banks?

Second, you said Chris Douglas Roberts was the 2012/2013 Marcus Banks the other day. So which is it? Or will you just go around making that nonsensical joke until it sticks somewhere? There's nothing wrong with seeing potential in or celebrating our bench players, nobody is hyping these guys up to be great, just to do the job they were brought in to do.

Were you the person saying that before? In any event that's not happening. Even if Darth wanted it to happen because he's fuming Mitch stuck it in his face "anyway". Jordan's attorney stated that even if it ever was cleared for trial, (not likely, or deal will be done) that the trial would not take place until after this season. Yeah yeah he's an attorney and lower than pond scum, but no way is Hill going to be suspended for the opener. :what:
