Hill isn't the scoffing type. But he came as close to it as possible while discussing what changed this season. "I got the minutes. This is what I've been waiting for," he said. "I knew once I got the minutes I was going to progress and show them what they bought." Then he mentioned former Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni, who helped Hill get career-highs almost across the board last season but wanted him to stay in one spot — the post. "D'Antoni wanted me to stand down there, just try to clean up and do the dirty work. I was already struggling for minutes with him so I couldn't do nothing but listen to him," Hill said. "Now I've got Byron Scott, who trusts me, and I can play my all-around game." Los Angeles Times

Mike Bresnahan: Henry would still get the full $1.1 million due this season. He averaged 2.2 points this season after a more-impactful 10 ppg last season. Twitter @Mike_Bresnahan

Despite missing the past two practices because of respective left shoulder and right ankle injuries, both forward Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis are expected to play tonight when the Lakers (3-11) host the Memphis Grizzlies (12-2) at Staples Center. They went through shootaround and they both moved pretty well, so I take it that they will both be available tonight,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “Unless something drastically changes in the next seven to eight hours. I think they’ll be ready to play.” Boozer will start, while Davis will return back to his reserve role. Los Angeles Daily News

Bill Oram: Haven’t confirmed Lakers talks with Earl Clark, but it’s unclear when or how Lakers would sign him. They would have two choices... Lakers have 15 guys, so could waive someone to make room. Or wait 3 games until hardship exemption kicks in and sign him to 16th roster spot Twitter @billoram

As injuries decimate their roster, the Los Angeles Lakers are working on a one-year deal to sign forward Earl Clark, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Clark has averaged 29 points per game for the Rio Grand Valley Vipers of the NBA Development League, and the eventual finalization of a deal could bring Clark back to the Lakers in the next few days, sources said.

The Lakers lost a third player for the season Monday, when swingman Xavier Henry ruptured his left Achilles' tendon in practice. The exceptions represent half of the salaries of Nash ($9.7 million) and Randle ($3 million). The Lakers might also apply for an exception for Henry, although half of his $1.1-million contract might not be enough for the team to acquire a replacement player. Los Angeles Times
