Jordan Hill will miss at least two games with hip injury

All three of the Lakers top bigs were injured last night, as Jordan Hill will also miss time with a hip injury.

USA TODAY Sports

Bad things come in threes? Apparently today for the Lakers. With news that Dwight Howard will be out at least a week with a torn labrum (to be re-evaluated), and Pau Gasol to miss at least team games with a concussion (also to be re-evaluated), Jordan Hill will join his other front court mates with an injury. Lakers.com's Mike Trudell reports that Hill will not make the road trip with a hip injury.

So, that's that. For the next few games no Dwight, no Pau, and no Jordan. In related news, Robert Sacre has been called back from the D-League. With all of this terrible news hitting at the same time, one can only hope he's ready to dance like he's never danced before.

Unsure if Jamison, MWP, Clark, Ebanks will start at the 4.</p>&mdash; Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) <a href="https://twitter.com/LakersReporter/status/288385661604605952" data-datetime="2013-01-07T20:44:34+00:00">January 7, 2013</a></blockquote>
