Lakers waiting for approval on disabled players exception

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak expects to hear from the NBA sometime this week on whether they’ll grant the disabled players exception for Jordan Hill.

Kupchak said that might happen as early as Monday, though he said he’s not overly concerned about it. The exception, worth $1.78 million, goes to teams who has an injured player that will be out until June 15. Hill had left hip surgery last week and won’t return until at least mid July.
