Los Angeles Lakers' Jordan Hill Charged With Felony Assault On Family Member

Already having to deal with the suspension of Metta World Peace, now the Los Angeles Lakers have to deal with another issue with one of their role players. This time it's reserve forward Jordan Hill.

Hill has been charged in the choking of a family member while he was still a member of the Houston Rockets, according to various sources. TMZ was the first source to break the story.

The incident took place on February 29 and Hill will have to make an appearance in Houston to face what is now a third-degree felony charge for assault on a family member by choking.

Hill is now facing a prison sentence of two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Once paperwork is filed, a warrant will be issued for his arrest.

Hill is in his best stretch of play since joining the Lakers and had become a major cog among their second unit. If he is forced to miss games to deal with this situation, that would be another rotation player missing for the Lakers.
