Lakers News: Jordan Hill Doesn’t Need Surgery, Will Return This Month

After news of an injury to Jordan Hill circulated last night fans began to wonder if the Lakers’ super-team wasn’t as deep as previously thought. It was revealed that Hill had a herniated disc in his back and that he could be sidelined for an extended period of time.

On Tuesday it was revealed by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports that the injury isn’t as bad as previously believed, and that Hill will return to the L.A. lineup later this month.

Hill, 25, will undergo core strength training on his back to rehabilitate the injury, sources said. He could return to practice within 10-14 days, but Hill’s rehab process will be fluid depending on how his back responds to treatment, sources said.

This is good news for Los Angeles, who is already dealing with an injured big man in Dwight Howard.

Hill is expected to make a full recovery and should be ready to play by the start of the regular season.
