Jordan Hill available Game two for Lakers, per report

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

After hip surgery three months ago Jordan Hill may return for the Lakers in game two against the Spurs.

Jordan Hill will be available for the Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday night in Game two of their series against the San Antonio Spurs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports "sources".

Hill has been out after tearing a labrum in his hip and then undergoing hip surgery three months ago, and was not expected to return this season. The Lakers, and Hill, had indicated they were ramping up rehab efforts. The last update from Hill indicated that he could come back "late" in the playoffs, but he may be ready to help the Lakers as soon as Wednesday night.

The Lakers have been running a shorthanded front court throughout much of the season, relying on Antawn Jamison, Earl Clark and even Metta World Peace as front court players, at times even at center while Gasol missed time, so adding Hill's active body into the rotation can help a Lakers team that needs as many hands on deck as possible.

It will be worth keeping an eye on Mike D'Antoni's rotations, the minute allotment Hill is given if he does return for game two, and how effective he is after missing much of the season. Will he play both power forward and center, or will he be reserved for back-up center duties only?

Game 2 in San Antonio is at 6:30 p.m. PT.
