The Los Angeles Lakers have dealt with an abundance of injuries this season as the team has yet to have a complete healthy roster of players for some time now.
Well it seems like the Lakers will be cut a break as it appears that backup forward Jordan Hill, who is currently sidelined with a left hip injury, may be making his way back to the court sometime in the near future.
Hill initially suffered the injury during a Jan. 6 game against the Denver Nuggets and had surgery to repair his damaged hip on Jan. 23. It was initially expected for Hill to miss at least six months of basketball, but according to Mark Medina, the Lakers may be able to expect him to return in late April or early May:
It remains a long shot, but Lakers forward Jordan Hill said doctors have told him there's a slim possibility he could return in late April or early May after spending the past two months rehabbing from a surgically repaired left hip.
Hill has been off crutches for three weeks now and has been increasing the intensity of his workouts. He has yet to perform any basketball related exercises, but plans to meet with team doctors in three weeks to see if he can make a return to the court, assuming the Lakers make the post season.
