Five Lakers Who Will Have to Step Up in Dwight Howard’s Absence
Jordan Hill
Jordan Will will surely get some minutes, and may even find himself in the starting lineup.

Jordan Hill showed a lot of promise last season. After barely seeing any playing time, Hill was thrown into the lineup at the very end of the season, and became a solid role player in the playoffs–often notching double-doubles.

While still learning the new offensive system after being traded to the Lakers in mid-March, Hill managed to become one of the only consistent bench players for the Lakers, which prompted management to sign him to a two-year, $7 million dollar deal.

Should Mike Brown decide to keep Antawn Jamison on the bench at the start of the season as an offensive spark and opt for a more defensive-able front line, Jordan Hill could find himself in the starting lineup.

At the very least, he’ll be called upon to spell Pau Gasol at the center position when he takes a breather, and likely also backup Jamison at power forward.
