Hill To Have Surgery, Lakers Considering Martin?

January 11 2013 at 10:37pm CDT By Sean Highkin

Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports (via Twitter) that Jordan Hill will need surgery on his hip and is expected to miss the rest of the regular season. This injury does not come at an ideal time for the Lakers, who are also without Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol due to injuries, and are lacking in frontcourt depth.

Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com speculates that the injury to Hill could lead the Lakers to consider signing Kenyon Martin. Martin has not signed with a team in 2012/13 and last played last season for the Clippers.
