Jordan Hill tweaked his ankle against the Los Angeles Clippers Friday night and is now probably for Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets.

What's that?! It's a bird. It's a plane. No... it's just another injury for a Lakers big man. With Dwight Howard now uncertain to play Sunday, it appears Jordan Hill will also join him in the "maybe" column, as reports Lakers reporter Mike Trudell.

Hill tweaked his ankle in last night's contest and remained on the bench for the remainder of the game. With two of the Lakers bigs now "probable" for Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets Antawn Jamison could potentially see the floor with an increased minute load. While Jamison did play against the Clippers it was only for a brief three minute period. You know, to stretch the legs. Updates as they come, but similarly to Howard's shoulder strain, this doesn't appear to be a serious injury.
