Lakers say Jordan Hill has been cleared to start running tomorrow on the Alter G treadmill at 70% of his body weight.
Plan is for Hill to increase his activity on the Alter G over the next week until he gets to 100% of his weight.
If all goes well and there are no set backs, @jordanchill43 could be ready to resume playing in games in 3-4 weeks.

So basically we we would be near the end of second round if it lasted that long for him to come back. Also him being at only 70% of his prior weight he should just take the rest of the season off. I just cant imagine how he would help. If he was 100% and full strength back then yea but I just dont see that.

70% of Jordan Hill, 5 minutes a half with the 2nd unit > Nothing. Jordan is all hustle, extra possessions make a huge difference in the game. Dwight gets into foul trouble a lot on the road and we know Pau sucks at defending the paint while playing Center, Jordan is a good player to utilize for a short stretch to take up minutes
Hope he can be ready when playoffs start!
LOS ANGELES -- If the Los Angeles Lakers end up making the deep postseason run the team hopes it can, then there might be some help on the way for their depleted bench.
Backup big man Jordan Hill was examined by Dr. Thomas Byrd in Nashville, Tenn. this week and cleared to begin running on an altered-gravity treadmill starting Friday.
The clearance comes just three months after Hill underwent what was considered at the time to be season-ending surgery on his left hip.
Hill will begin running with 70 percent of his body weight, according to the team. He will gradually increase the weight on the treadmill, barring any setbacks, and be cleared for full weight-bearing running and jumping exercises once he reaches 100 percent.
The team estimates it would take another 3-4 weeks of on-court basketball drills before Hill will be able to resume playing in games.
The four-year veteran averaged 6.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game this season.

lol..We're not good enough to not have Nash and Hill, along with a more healthy Metta.
We can compete and even beat anyone.
These should be our line-ups outside starting and finishing

After running on an altered-gravity treadmill Friday in further progression from left hip surgery, Jordan Hill will be cleared for basketball activities next week and work to elevate his conditioning to the point where he can return to the Los Angeles Lakers, agent Kevin Bradbury told RealGM.
Hill was evaluated by his doctor this week to determine the timetable for a return, and he showed he was ready to be cleared for running and jumping drills. All along, the Lakers’ training staff has been impressed with Hill’s progress, diligence and attack in rehabilitating a hip injury that was believed to have ended his season.
Once Hill resumes basketball drills in the coming week, it “will just be a matter of basketball shape and when he can go,” Bradbury said. The Lakers said Thursday that Hill would need three to four weeks of on-court workouts to come back, but the 25-year-old forward will remain aggressive to beat that timetable.
The Lakers currently hold the eighth seed in the Western Conference, one game ahead of the Utah Jazz.
Hill established himself as an integral reserve for the Lakers a year ago and had continued his development this season. The fourth-year veteran averaged 6.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in 29 games before the hip injury in January, and his Lakers teammates – headlined by Kobe Bryant – have made clear how vital Hill is to their defense and rebounding.
