Lakers News: Jordan Hill Suffers Back Injury


Following the Lakers rather embarrassing loss Sunday night to the Golden State Warriors in the pre-season opener, it was announced by the team that reserve big man Jordan Hill suffered a back injury during the game.

According to the team, Hill suffered a herniated disc in his back after being examined by a back specialist. Hill, who scored 10 points on 5-11 shooting in a team high 20 minutes on Sunday night, will be re-evaluated in a week.

Until then, expect to see more of Robert Sacre and Greg Somogyi in the L.A. frontcourt when the team takes on the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

This could be trouble for an already depleted Lakers frontline that is still waiting for center Dwight Howard to get back on the court following off-season back surgery.

    Wish the best for Jordan Hill and a speedy recovery. But when one door closes another opens hopefully Lakers can see this as a reason to sign Sacre. Sacre showed a lot of effort out there and look to see him get more minutes  Plus um-mm he is a seven footer him and Gasol could be a bad bunch.

    No need to overreact. As long as he comes back before the season starts, he does not need to rush.

       You do not come back from a herniated disc, you have to get it repaired. Hill will be lucky to come back during the regular season. Gasol will have to play center until Howard is ready and this hurts the bench.

       Unless one of there second round picks turns out to be a sleeper that slipped thru the draft the Lakers are going to be thread bare.

      Time will tell, this is why games and titles are not won on paper but on the court.
