Lakers Granted Exception for Hill’s Injury
The Lakers were given a disabled-player exception by the NBA after losing Jordan Hill for the season.
They have until March 11 to spend $1.8 million on a free agent or $1.9 million to acquire a player via trade if he’s in the last year of his contract. A free-agent signing could be only for the rest of this season.
Hill underwent season-ending hip surgery last week.
