The Lakers took their team photo on Thursday, well most of them.
Jordan Hill missed the annual event, arriving late to the team’s practice facility, according to a Lakers spokesman.
Also absent in the photo is any member of the Buss family, with owners Jim and Jeanie Buss sitting out.

After the passing of Jerry Buss last February, the Lakers honored their late owner with a basketball sitting on an empty chair in between Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard.
Jim Buss represented the Buss family in the team’s 2012 team photo.
This year’s image includes a rare glimpse of Kobe Bryant in uniform. The team’s All-Star guard has missed all but six games this season with Achilles’ tendon and knee injuries.
The Lakers are just 22-45 this season, the fifth worst in the NBA.
