Following a torn labrum and damaged cartilage on Jan. 6th, Jordan Hill required surgery and was ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Fortunately after an appointment with his doctor Wednesday, Hill has been cleared to start doing work on the treadmill and the Lakers anticipate another 3-4 weeks before he can fully return.

Within the given timetable, the Lakers would have to make it as far as the Western Conference Finals for Hill to actually see any playing time.

But hey, we’re optimists.
