Three months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn hip labrum suffered on Jan. 6th, reports are surfacing that Jordan Hill will be available in limited minutes moving forward.
Hill was originally cleared to start doing increased rehabilitation in early April, and the timetable given for his full return was 3-4 weeks – well into the Western Conference Finals.
Fortunately Hill has progressed well ahead of schedule and according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski will be used in game situations as early as game 2.
Hill was an integral piece of the Lakers lineup prior to the injury, averaging 6.7 points and 5.7 rebounds. A welcome face as the Lakers trail the Spurs 1-0.
