Los Angeles Lakers forward Jordan Hill suffered a sprain right wrist in his team's 84-82 loss to the San Antonio spurs on Tuesday night. He will receive treatment for the next three days and is probable to play in the Lakers' next game against the Suns on Friday, according to the team's official twitter account.

A doctor came to consult the third-year player out of Arizona on the bench, and HIll was wearing the a brace following the game, as Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register observed. Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily reportedthat Hill found the pain in his wrist to be "tolerable."

Hill has been active off the bench for Los Angeles, scoring 7.1 points and grabbing 5.8 rebounds in just 16.3 minutes per contest. All three would be career-highs should HIll be able to maintain the same level of play throughout the season.

The Lakers are dealing with injuries in their backcourt as well. Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times noted that Steve Nash and Steve Blake are also listed on the injury report.
