George Hill (knee, quad) went through most of Tuesday's practice, although he has "a long way to go with his conditioning," according to head coach Frank Vogel.
Vogel added that Hill is "moving really well," and it's probably time to grab him off the waiver wire if he's still available. He's nearing a return, and he's going to be asked to be one of the Pacers' main guys on offense with Paul George (leg) sidelined. It's reasonable to think he'll be able to get somewhere near his 2012-13 averages of 14.2 points, 4.7 assists, 1.7 three-pointers, and 1.1 steals per game. Dec 16 - 2:19 PM

Date:

George Hill (knee, quad) will be going "full out" at practice this week, according to coach Frank Vogel.

"Unlikely [he'll play] on this trip," Vogel added, "but not out of the realm of possibility." It's probably about time to pick up Hill in most leagues since he could be ready next week. Donald Sloan will get bumped in the rotation while C.J. Watson should lose playing time.
Dec 15 - 6:48 PM

George Hill (knee, quad) was able to participate in his first semi-contact practice on Thursday, but remains without an official return date.

Hill has not been able to go through a full practice yet, but this is an encouraging sign. He's going to step into a big role upon his eventual return to the lineup, but until then C.J. Watson and Rodney Stuckey will help fill the void. Given Hill's upside, he qualifies as a stash candidate, but owners will need to be patient, as he'll likely be eased back into things.
Dec 11 - 3:48 PM

George Hill (knee) is still a few weeks away from returning, according to coach frank Vogel.

He was a couple weeks away on Dec. 4, so he's going backwards. Rodney Stuckey will likely start for the rest of 2014 while C.J. Watson will also help off the bench. Donald Sloan is out of the rotation right now.
Dec 8 - 5:26 PM

George Hill (knee, quad) is still a couple weeks away from his season debut, according to coach Frank Vogel.

Hill is hopefully to get some non-contact work in next week. He has a tear in his quad and the Pacers are likely going to ease him back, which means we probably won't see him close to 100 percent until around 2014. C.J. Watson and Rodney Stuckey are heating up while Donald Sloan is cooling off.
Dec 4 - 8:47 PM

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel revealed for the first time that in addition to George Hill's knee contusion, he is also dealing with a tear in his left quad and is not expected back until mid-December.

Vogel said that the tear did not show up in the initial MRI because there was too much blood, but that is the reason Hill has been out for so long. C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut Friday night, and it's not known exactly how that will affect Donald Sloan's minutes. However, given Sloan's solid play so far this season, he'll likely remain in the starting lineup as Watson is eased back into the rotation, and he should remain be held in standard leagues until something changes.
Nov 28 - 6:37 PM

George Hill (knee) is still not close to returning and won't be back until mid-December, as expected.

Beat writer Candace Buckner adds it is "not the first of the month" either. Hill should be a big part of the offense and is a decent stash, but obviously the uncertain return date could make it tough to do so. Expect Donald Sloan to have a couple more weeks of value.
Nov 21 - 2:20 PM

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel said we could be "into December" before George Hill (knee) makes his return to the court.

Ouch. What started as an initial 3-week timetable has turned into a what might be a month long absence. While Hill remains out, Donald Sloan will continue to start, and he's had a nice run so far averaging 15.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 1.8 three-pointers per game over 35 minutes of action.
Nov 7 - 1:34 PM

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel said that George Hill (knee) is still "a long ways away" from returning to the court.

Hill is currently one week into his initial three-week timetable, but a quote like this isn't exactly encouraging. While Hill is sidelined, Donald Sloan will continue to see heavy minutes for the short-handed Pacers. Through the first three games of the season, Sloan has been averaging 14.0 points, 6.7 assists, 6.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 1.3 three-pointers, and 2.7 turnovers over 35 minutes of action.
Nov 3 - 2:45 PM

George Hill (knee) will be out at least three weeks.

It's an absolutely brutal blow to the Pacers and to fantasy owners expecting big things from Hill. Thought to be a minor concern, Hill's knee injury has now turned into him being out for three weeks at a minimum. With CJ Watson (foot) also out at least two weeks, the Pacers are going to have to ride Donald Sloan at point guard.
Oct 27 - 1:59 PM

Larry Bird is expecting George Hill (knee contusion) to step it up this season with Paul George (leg) sidelined.

"We got some guys we think are going to step up and play well," Bird said. "I thought George Hill was excellent during training camp; he's gotten a lot better. I'm just amazed by how much better [Hill] has got." Hill is going to be the main guy running the Pacers' offense this season, and we'd expect him to get somewhere closer to his averages from the 2012-13 season in which he put up 14.2 points, 4.7 assists, 1.7 three-pointers, and 1.1 steals per game. He is currently dealing with a knee contusion, but we're listing him as probable for opening night.
Oct 26 - 12:34 PM

George Hill (knee contusion) said he won't know for a couple days if he'll be ready for the opener on Wednesday.

An MRI was unclear to indicate the severity of the contusion. He had a contusion cost him more games than expected last year, so it's certainly possible Hill misses time. He is going to be a huge part of the offense and nothing is structurally wrong, so fantasy owners shouldn't move him too far down their boards.
Oct 25 - 2:03 PM

George Hill (knee) will not play on Thursday against Charlotte.

He is fine and should be ready for the opener. Hill has a lot on his plate and will have to run the offense a heck of a lot more. If he can stay healthy, he could wind up being a very strong No. 2 fantasy point guard.
Oct 23 - 7:08 PM

George Hill is listed as questionable for Thursday's game after suffering a left knee contusion on Tuesday night.

"It swelled up pretty good so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and take it day to day," coach Frank Vogel said after Tuesday's game. Hill should be ready to go for the start of the regular season, and we're expecting him to be considerably better this season than last. Donald Sloan is pushing C.J. Watson for back up duties, but Hill is the guy you want to own.
Oct 22 - 2:41 AM

George Hill suffered a knee contusion on Tuesday and will not return to the game.

If you're going to have a knee injury, a contusion is the way to go. He's day-to-day and finishes with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer. He's looking for a bounce-back season as the Pacers' starting point guard, and he's looked good in the preseason. Consider him day-to-day.
