And the list keeps growing. After losing Jodie Meeks in the first quarter against the T’Wolves on Tuesday night, Jordan Hill was injured in the second quarter. Hill didn’t immediately leave the game, but was suffering from a headache and left the bench area after a couple minutes.

Hill and Meeks were two of the Lakers that hadn’t missed extended time this season. With both of them out, the Lakers have just eight players for the remainder of the game. With Nash not playing back-to-backs earlier in the season, their health could determine if LA signs another player to the roster before tomorrow’s game.
