This will be his sixth game in a row on the shelf after he missed eight games in a row earlier this season with a thumb issue. Hill was playing the best ball of his life this season, so his owners just need to hang in there. Shelvin Mack is worth streaming while Hill is out, but Dante Exum still belongs on the wire.

George Hill (left toe) will not play against the Warriors on Thursday.

He just can't shake injuries this year with this game marking his fifth DNP in a row. Hill has also missed time for his thumb and was limited due to an illness last month. He is having a massive year based on per-game averages, so he has to be stashed. Dante Exum will start in a favorable matchup while Gordon Hayward should get a massive opportunity as the primary ball-handler.
Dec 7 - 9:37 PM

George Hill (left big toe) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

This will be Hill's fourth straight game on the sidelines, so while he's been phenomenal while on the court this season, his penchant for hitting the sidelines has been extremely frustrating. Dante Exum should continue to start with Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward running the show on offense. For now, we'll be considering Hill questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Hill out again, DFS players will want to flock towards Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood. With Hill and Derrick Favors off the floor this season, Hayward owns an elite 32.7% usage rate (per RotoGrinders CourtIQ), making his salary across the industry seem to low given the match-up. Hood's usage also jumps to 29.7%, making him a very strong mid-range play at a thin SG spot. Pairing the two together is viable in any format, as it gives you ample exposure to an offense that will play way up in pace tonight.
Dec 6 - 3:51 PM

George Hill (left big toe) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

This will be his third game in a row on the shelf, but the Jazz are hoping he will be able to return either Tuesday against the Suns or Thursday against the Warriors. Dante Exum will likely continue to start, but he's been outplayed by Shelvin Mack lately and has played less minutes than Mack in two straight games.
Dec 4 - 1:01 PM

George Hill (left big toe) will not play in Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Hill is enjoying a phenomenal statistical season but has been bitten by the injury bug of late. He missed eight straight games in November due to a thumb issue and is now dealing with a toe injury. Saturday will be the second game missed due to the toe. Dante Exum started at point guard for Utah in their previous game, but he played less than 19 minutes and scored just five points on 1-of-6 shooting. Shelvin Mack ended up playing 33 minutes, finishing with 11 points, five assists and five rebounds. If you are looking to roll the dice on a DFS dart throw or a streamer, Mack would be the preferred option.
Dec 3 - 1:01 PM

George Hill (left big toe) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

The doubtful tag this early is always a concern, so Hill's owners may have to prepare for another lengthy absence. He's been having a career year, so his owners just need to hold onto him. Dante Exum started on Thursday, but Shelvin Mack outplayed him off the bench and is the better short-term option in deeper leagues.
Dec 2 - 9:52 PM

George Hill (left big toe) is out for Thursday's game against Miami.

Hill is dealing with a sprain in his left big toe and will sit against the Heat on Thursday. Hill has put together a fantastic season thus far and it's currently unclear how long he'll be out. For at least Thursday night, Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack will see a boost in minutes and fantasy value, with Exum being the likely starter and priority pickup of the two.
Dec 1 - 1:01 PM

George Hill hit just 2-of-6 shots for eight points, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

Hill was not only having a fantastic season coming in, he'd scored 22, 23 and 24 points in each of his three games since returning from his thumb injury on Nov. 23. Patrick Beverley shut him down tonight, but given how well Hill has played this season, we fully expect him to bounce back on Thursday against the Heat.
Nov 30 - 12:22 AM

George Hill scored 24 points with eight rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 34 minutes in a 112-103 win over the Wolves on Monday.

Hill has arguably been the MVP of the Jazz this season and his team is 3-0 since he returned from his thumb injury. The Jazz were outscoring opponents by 23 points per 100 possessions with Hill and Gordon Hayward in the lineup prior to Monday, and Hill has scored 22 or more points in seven out of his 10 appearances this season.
Nov 28 - 11:59 PM

George Hill (illness) returned from the locker room in Friday's 95-68 win over the Hawks and looked great, scoring 23 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and five 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He was battling through flu-like symptoms, but you wouldn't have been able to tell by the way he was playing. He scored 17 of his points after returning from the locker room and finished 8-of-14 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line with zero turnovers. He now gets two days off to rest before Monday's game vs. the Wolves.
Nov 25 - 11:19 PM

George Hill (illness) has returned to Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

He's not 100 percent and is dealing with flu-like symptoms, but he's still playing well and should remain in the game as it long as it's a close one. We'll have an update after the game.
Nov 25 - 9:01 PM

George Hill (illness) left Friday's game vs. the Hawks and went to the locker room.

He's battling flu-like symptoms and is questionable to return. He hit a couple 3-pointers in the first quarter before leaving after eight minutes of action, so expect Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack to step it up if Hill can't return. To be clear, there was no report of an illness prior to Friday's game.
Nov 25 - 8:30 PM

George Hill had a triumphant return during a 108-93 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He was 8-of-13 from the field and really helped turn the Jazz offensive around. The Jazz were coming off a four-game losing streak, so getting Hill back after missing eight games was huge. In Hill's eight games this season, he's turning in top-15 value in standard leagues in what has been by far his best offensive season so far. He won't be this good the rest of the way, but his owners have to love having him back.
Nov 24 - 1:25 AM

George Hill (thumb) will play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

"I'm sure there will be rust but it will be good to have his voice back and his spirit," said head coach Quin Snyder. Hill has spent the past eight games on the sidelines, but he'll reportedly be without a minutes limit for tonight's game. His return will send Dante Exum back to the bench and Shelvin Mack could drop out of the rotation entirely. Go ahead and get him active.
Nov 23 - 7:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Quin Snyder said that George Hill (thumb) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets.

A tweet from the Jazz PR team said that Hill would play, and while Snyder won't confirm his status, things are certainly trending in a positive direction. Hill did acknowledge that his thumb is still a bit sore when he dribbles or gets hit, so owners will want to check back on his status for official confirmation closer to tip-off. If he plays, he'll more than likely start, which will send Dante Exum back to the bench.
