The Los Angeles Lakers' practice facility was devoid of its stars Saturday, as Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol -- along with assistant coach Kurt Rambis and longtime trainer Gary Vitti -- were excused to attend a memorial service for former Lakers coach Bill Sharman.

With his All-Stars away for the day, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni focused on the rest of his rotation that he is trying to sort out three games into the season.

One player that has D'Antoni reconsidering his role for is Jordan Hill.

"That would be the obvious, 'Yeah,'" D'Antoni said of Hill, who sat the first three quarters of L.A.'s 91-85 loss to San Antonio on Friday and then filled up with box score with five points, four rebounds (three offensive) and an assist, all in the fourth quarter.

"It’s not my decision how many minutes I get, so I just want to go out there and produce when I’m out there with those minutes," said Hill, who is averaging 6.3 points on 69.2 percent shooting and 6.3 rebounds per game this season in just 14.0 minutes per game.

The bulk of those boards have come on the offensive glass. Hill's 4.0 offensive boards per game ties him for 10th-most in the league so far this season, but he's one of only three players on that list to average less than 20 minutes per game.

"When a shot goes off, I can know if it’s going long or know if it’s going short, so I just try to bully my man to that position before he gets to it," Hill said. "I may not look too strong, but I’m very strong when we’re down there, so I can definitely get there."

Hill, who spent the summer honing his jump shot to try to fill the stretch 4 role in D'Antoni's system, said he has scrapped that plan and gone back to the basics.

"I’m going to try to focus on what I do best – rebounding, putbacks, defending, running the floor – and if my shot is open, I’m going to take it," said Hill, who has attempted only one jumper outside of 16 feet so far this season (he made it, banking it in against the Clippers).

"Whenever I feel like it’s a good shot for me, I’m going to take it, but I’m not going to focus on that mainly," Hill said. "We got shooters out there, I know Pau, (Chris) Kaman can shoot, Wesley (Johnson), (Shawne Williams). So, I’ll just do the tough guy role, basically."

Xavier Henry also played a pretty good tough guy against the Spurs, making two free throws after suffering a two-inch laceration on his forehead that required nine stitches.
