Here is the Lakers' plan if Dwight leaves: Keep Pau for final year of his deal. Use amnesty provision to cut Metta and save $30 million in luxury-tax payments. Re-sign Earl Clark if reasonable, sign someone else on the cheap and/or plug in Meeks or Blake to the starting lineup that will have two vacancies without Dwight and Metta but still Pau. Jordan Hill is the only other frontcourt player under contract right now. Sulia

After running on an altered-gravity treadmill Friday in further progression from left hip surgery, Jordan Hill will be cleared for basketball activities next week and work to elevate his conditioning to the point where he can return to the Los Angeles Lakers, agent Kevin Bradbury told RealGM.

Hill was evaluated by his doctor this week to determine the timetable for a return, and he showed he was ready to be cleared for running and jumping drills. All along, the Lakers’ training staff has been impressed with Hill’s progress, diligence and attack in rehabilitating a hip injury that was believed to have ended his season. Once Hill resumes basketball drills in the coming week, it “will just be a matter of basketball shape and when he can go,” Bradbury said. The Lakers said Thursday that Hill would need three to four weeks of on-court workouts to come back, but the 25-year-old forward will remain aggressive to beat that timetable. RealGM
