Jordan Hill confirms that he will play against the Denver Nuggets

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Early Saturday it was reported Lakers reserve big man Jordan Hill would be considered "probable" to play against the Denver Nuggets. Jordan Hill let Twitter know that he would, in fact, be playing.

Jordan Hill sprained his ankle against the Los Angeles Clippers Friday night. As the usual reports began to trickle out after the Lakers' Saturday practice, word that both Jordan Hill and Dwight Howard would be "probable" for Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets came out. Well, per a reliable source who's very close to this matter, Jordan Hill will be playing Sunday night. As reports... Jordan Hill


Case closed. With Dwight Howard's status still uncertain having Jordan Hill ready and able to play will help the Lakers depth should the center sit out Friday night. With Hill cracking the rotation and playing consistent minutes under Mike D'Antoni after being buried on the bench he has continued to be one of the few players on the roster that brings effort and energy internally and consistently. Nothing is more indicative of this than his 20.4% offensive rebound percentage, which would make him 1st in the league should he be qualified by the necessary statistical requirements (currently Anderson Varejao at 16.8%).
