George Hill (personal) was a full participant during Monday's practice.
Hill missed Sunday's game against the Raptors for personal reasons, but he should be good to go for Tuesday's game against the Suns. That said, Hill hasn't been worth owning this year as he's locked into a value-killing timeshare situation in Sacramento, and his minutes will likely continue to decline as we get further into the season.

George Hill will miss Sunday's game vs. the Raptors for personal reasons.

Hill has been trending down for weeks and this will give his fantasy owners another reason to move on. He's eligible to be traded next week, so maybe a change of scenery could get him going. With Hill out, both Frank Mason and De'Aaron Fox will play as many minutes as they can handle.
Dec 10 - 1:25 PM

George Hill scored nine points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Pelicans.

You would think De'Aaron Fox is the guy eating into his minutes, but it's been Frank Mason III. Hill does have a fantasy friendly game overall, but the playing time is so up and down. He's hardly a must-own player and he could get even more annoying as the season goes on.
Dec 9 - 2:28 AM

George Hill notched 10 points, five rebounds, three assists, two blocks, two 3-pointers and one steal in 30 minutes on Wednesday.

Hill tweeted out 26 angry emojis after a loss this weekend, but explained that he was upset with another loss, not specific teammates or coaches. "We’re so young it’s kind of difficult to figure out what’s going to be my direction, what’s going to be my style of play, what’s this guy’s role or my role," Hill said. He added that it's going to be a "roller coaster" all year, and this isn't a situation that bodes well for the veteran's rest-of-season fantasy value.
Dec 6 - 9:55 PM

George Hill finished with six points, one assist and a steal with two turnovers across 18 minutes in Saturday's road loss at Milwaukee.

The Kings aren't very good. When young players like Bogdan Bogdanovic, Buddy Hield and Frank Mason are all playing well, coach Dave Joerger is probably going to lean their way late in games. After the game, Hill took to Twitter and posted several angry emojis immediately after the loss, presumably over his limited minutes and role with the team. It's probably going to be a bumpy ride for his fantasy owners.
Dec 3 - 12:16 AM

George Hill scored two points (0-of-2 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with two rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

Hill wasn't aggressive at all and didn't look interested in the game, but most of his teammates weren't any better. The Kings are giving De'Aaron Fox and Frank Mason plenty of opportunities, but Hill can still be relevant if they keep using a lot of two-PG lineups. With that said, he's been really inconsistent and his outlook is pretty poor with the Kings tanking.
Nov 29 - 12:31 AM

George Hill started, but saw just 23 minutes of floor time on Saturday, finishing with just 10 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

Hill's minutes have been all over the place this season, and that's a trend we'd expect to continue on this rebuilding Sacramento team with De'Aaron Fox constantly pushing him for playing time. Fox saw 29 minutes of action in the loss, but failed to do much with the opportunity, ending his evening with just four points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover. Hill's worth owning as a low-end guy right now, but his rest-of-season outlook isn't great.
Nov 26 - 1:32 AM

George Hill vanished on Wednesday with zero points, steals or blocks in 22 minutes of action vs. the Lakers.

Hill made another start alongside De'Aaron Fox, but he finished with just three rebounds and one assist while missing both of his field goal attempts. He was just starting to regain some trust with five straight double-digit scoring games, and this highlights the inherent risk in relying on him -- Sacramento will continue to give Fox minutes at PG, which leaves Hill battling a thicket of players for a dwindling pool of playing time.
Nov 23 - 1:21 AM

George Hill had 16 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers on Monday vs. Denver.

After a disastrous start to the season, Hill is slowly earning the trust of his fantasy owners back. He's playing a lot more next to De'Aaron Fox these days, and he's averaging a solid 14.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 triples over his last five games. The Kings are a mess and Hill could lose minutes late in the season when they chase lottery balls, but he's worth owning for now.
Nov 21 - 12:57 AM

George Hill played 27 minutes with 14 points, five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer against the Blazers on Friday.

He may be shifted over to the wing and he played 25 minutes next to De'Aaron Fox in this game alone. Hill is probably going to see his playing time fluctuate as the Kings slide in the standings. Most fantasy owners may not want to deal with the inconsistency and maybe he doesn't play on Saturday. He should have value if he can play 27 minutes per night.
Nov 18 - 1:04 AM

The Kings' streak of seven straight road losses continued on Wednesday, while George Hill scored 12 points (4-of-11 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

It's been a struggle for Hill to begin the season, and rookie De'Aaron Fox is an ever-present threat to his playing time (27 minutes tonight). He has shown signs of life recently, though, which he attributed to a more aggressive mindset. "Look to score first, try to make passes second," he said. Unless he can start stringing together multiple solid games, he belongs on the wire.

George Hill hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 25 minutes in Monday's loss to the Wizards.

After scoring 16 and 21 points in his first two games of the season, Hill scored eight or fewer points in nine of his next 10 games. While tonight was a step in the right direction, Hill has taken a backseat to rookie De'Aaron Fox, who had 10 points, five assists and a 3-pointer on 3-of-10 shooting in 26 minutes. We're not ready to go back in on Hill, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case tonight wasn't a fluke.
Nov 13 - 9:32 PM

George Hill returned from his personal leave on Tuesday and missed all three of his shots for one points, five rebounds, three assists and nothing else.

To say he's struggling is an understatement and every game that De'Aaron Fox plays behind him he takes at least one giant step toward taking over the starting point guard duties. As if Hill's poor play wasn't enough, the fact that Fox is ready to roll for a tanking team makes it an almost certainty to happen. If you're ready to drop Hill, we've got your back.
Nov 8 - 1:15 AM

George Hill (personal) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

Hill missed Saturday's game vs. Detroit due to personal reasons but was back at practice on Monday. He has been a major disappointment thus far this season, averaging just 9.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 27.6 minutes. Splitting time at point guard with De'Aaron Fox has severely capped Hill's fantasy value. Fox will get bumped back to the bench on Tuesday. Surprisingly, Fox has been more productive off the bench than as a starter.
Nov 7 - 9:27 AM

George Hill (personal) was back at practice on Monday.

Hill missed Saturday's game in Detroit for personal reasons, but it sounds like he'll be back in action on Tuesday night vs. the Thunder. If Hill is able to get back out there, De'Aaron Fox will likely head back to the bench and his value will take a minor hit.
