Lakers News: Jordan Hill Suffers Quad Strain Against Knicks, Will Be Re-Evaluated Monday

Jordan Hill has been one of the few bright spots for the Lakers in recent weeks, but he was forced to leave the game against the New York Knicks in the first quarter and could miss more time thanks to a quad strain.

Hill is the Lakers third-leading scorer, and leads the team in games played (47), games started (47) and rebounds per game (8.1). While there won't be a definitive return date for Hill until he gets another look from the team doctors on Monday, quad injuries are notoriously hard to predict - this could keep him out for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

With Hill out, expect to see a lot more of Robert Sacre, but Tarik Black - still not back to 100% after an ankle injury - should step in and see major minutes for the first time since the Lakers picked him up in late December.
