The Jazz will start Wednesday's game with a lineup of George Hill, Dante Exum, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert.
This news is mostly relevant to DFS owners, but we'll be keeping a close eye on Exum with an expanded opportunity for the banged-up Jazz. Oct 12 - 8:13 PM

George Hill, Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert will start vs. the Blazers on Monday.

This is fully expected to be the starting lineup for the opening night of the regular season as well. The Jazz starters are only expected to see around 20 minutes tonight. The Jazz want to get a "long look" at Dante Exum in this one, so how he plays in the preseason could determine how large of a role Hill will have.
Oct 3 - 10:05 PM

George Hill said he isn't worried about his contract situation.

"I haven't really talked about that much with anyone," Hill said. "My whole focus is to come in here and be the best player that I can possibly be. I feel that the contract situation will work itself out, once you do that." Hill can walk as a free agent next summer and the Jazz won't have a lot of financial flexibility. The Jazz brought him in to mentor Dante Exum and he will be the starting PG on opening night, but his minutes are expected to take a hit in Utah with so much competition in the backcourt.

George Hill said he was surprised by the trade that sent him from the Pacers to the Jazz.

"It came as a surprise. Last time I checked, I was supposed to retire from Indiana," he said. "Very surprising, but I know this is a business and anything can happen. So, I’m not upset about it. I think I’m in a great situation here. I’m here, somewhere where I feel wanted right now." Hill is familiar with GM Dennis Lindsay from their tenure in San Antonio together, and he seems genuinely excited to join a young Jazz team on the definite upswing. Why wouldn't he be?
Jul 11 - 11:16 AM

George Hill has been traded to the Jazz in Wednesday's three-team trade.

Jeff Teague heads to Indiana and the Hawks get the No. 12 pick. Hill did start at point guard, but he acted more like a shooting guard in the Pacers offense. He ranked first in the Eastern Conference for left corner treys while he was solid as an on-ball defender. He'll be in a similar role with the Jazz, but his playing time figures to drop with Dante Exum (knee) expected to be close to 100 percent for training camp. Hill has a very nice floor in fantasy, so he's still worth a look as a late-round target.
Jun 22 - 2:31 PM

George Hill made 8-of-11 shots on Sunday to finish with 19 points and three 3-pointers, but he added just one rebound and two assists during the Pacers' Game 7 defeat in Toronto.

"For this basketball team to succeed, we need to run," Frank Vogel said before the game. "Forcing turnovers is a part of that." Indiana wound up with only eight points in transition, while committing five more turnovers than Toronto. They used a 15-2 surge to come within three points late in the fourth quarter, but ultimately it wasn't enough for Hill and co. to advance past the first round.
May 1 - 11:03 PM

George Hill scored 15 points with three assists, two boards, one block, one steal and four 3-pointers on Tuesday in Game 5 vs. the Raptors.

Other than Paul George, Hill might be the Pacers' most reliable player right now. He was 5-of-9 from the field tonight and didn't have any turnovers, and he continued to pick up the slack on offense with Monta Ellis struggling. Hill had 22 points with four rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in Game 4, so he's on the radar in DFS while he's hot.
Apr 26 - 10:09 PM

Frank Vogel made a subtle adjustment in Game 4, allowing George Hill to have the ball in his hands at the top of the key.

The result? Hill felt that the tweak allowed him to be more active in the offense, resulting in 22 points without a single turnover. "Anytime you can feel the ball a bit more and you feel like you’re a little bit more involved, it’s all about confidence," he said. "If you’re sitting for more of the majority of the game and you really don’t get a lot of touches, maybe every once in a while your confidence and your rhythm is probably out of sync." In addition to serving as the primary defender against Kyle Lowry vs. Toronto, the Pacers need Hill's offense to keep showing up if Indiana wants to upset Toronto and move on to the second round.
Apr 25 - 1:30 PM

George Hill busted out during a Game 4 100-83 win over the Raptors on Saturday, scoring 22 points with four rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and no turnovers in 31 minutes.

He scored just 27 points in the previous three games combined. Hill had been focusing on his defense and had been terrific in that regard. Today he was able to turn the tables on Kyle Lowry and got clean looks all game. He was 9-of-11 from the field, so it's hard to buy this game because the efficiency is not sustainable. This series is all tied up 2-2 with Game 5 starting on Tuesday.
Apr 23 - 6:46 PM

George Hill scored four points with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes against the Raptors on Monday.

His defense was pretty good, but Hill is just not part of the offense right now. He scored 10 points on Sunday and is not an attractive DFS play with Kyle Lowry on him.
Apr 18 - 9:53 PM

George Hill scored 10 points with three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

The Pacers continue to use Hill more in the corners for spacing, but that's just fine. Hill shot 44 percent on his corner 3-pointers during the season while leading the Eastern Conference in left corner 3-pointers in his 74 games. He also played some terrific defense on Kyle Lowry in this win. Hill has more value in season-long leagues than in DFS.
Apr 16 - 4:22 PM

George Hill (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

The Pacers have the No. 7 seed all locked up, so Frank Vogel will be resting all of his main guys for Wednesday's game. Ty Lawson will likely earn a start tonight, with Joseph Young and Rodney Stuckey also seeing an uptick in minutes. Lawson is a reasonable DFS target with Hill, Monta Ellis, Paul George and Ian Mahinmi all getting the night off.

George Hill scored five points with three assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He's cooled off again. In his last five games, Hill averaged 8.8 points, 3.2 boards, 2.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.2 treys on 40.5 percent from the field. He is worth owning in all leagues because he almost certainly won't be rested until maybe the finale, but he's hands off in DFS right now.
Apr 9 - 12:31 AM

George Hill scored just three points on 1-of-5 shooting vs. Houston, adding three rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes.

It's a disappointing outcome for Hill, especially since he faced a lenient and up-tempo opponent, but tonight he took a backseat behind Paul George (25 points) and Monta Ellis (23 points). He was shooting lights-out in his previous five games and should bounce back vs. D-Rose and the Bulls on Tuesday.
Mar 27 - 8:52 PM

George Hill made 7-of-8 from the field for 17 points with three rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

He might finally be healthy again. Since the break, Hill has dealt with problems to his elbow, toe and groin. He has been "back" in his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 3.2 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.0 treys on a gorgeous 64.8 true shooting percent. He is a must-start player again.
