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.

 

In OTHER news....hope he comes back.

Let's hope he can get back ASAP. His offensive rebounding, hustle and grit are sorely missed

One of my favorite players on this team, reminds me of Rodman with his hustle. Hope he gets back at least in time for round 2, assuming we make it that far
