Injuries continue to take a toll on this Los Angeles Lakers roster with Jordan Hill going down with a quad strain in the loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday. After suffering the injury, Hill headed to the locker room at Madison Square Garden and did not return.

According to ESPN’s Baxter Holmes, Hill will return to Los Angeles on Tuesday morning to get the injury checked out:

Hill has been one of the team’s most productive players this season averaging 12.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game. Jordan recently had his best game of the season in the double overtime win over the Chicago Bulls last Thursday night at the Staples Center.

Tarik Black and Robert Sacre will likely see a boost in minutes if Hill is set to miss time. Hill will likely miss Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks with the veteran forward/center traveling to Los Angeles.

Hill’s status will be updated after his evaluation on Tuesday morning.
