Jordan Hill Out 6 Months Following Surgery


Yesterday Jordan Hill underwent his season ending procedure to repair a torn labrum in his hip. The Lakers reserve will be out at least 6 months while he recovers according to reports.

That means the man with one year left on his current contract should be back in time for the opening of camp.

Without Hill the Lake Show has lost an interior presence but in the Mike D’Antoni system that hardly matters. No telling what the future holds for Hill or the Lakers but hopefully it involves a healthy return for Jordan and a swift exit for D’Antoni.
