George Hill is experiencing some soreness from Friday, but is expected to play against the Magic on Sunday.
The severity of the soreness is not known, but this certainly isn't good news. Hill has dealt with his groin strain for basically three years and he's already aggravated it once. He'll likely be on a minutes limit again on Sunday and is more of a stash. Donald Sloan may still see a few more minutes. Jan 24 - 4:48 PM

Date:

George Hill (groin) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Heat, scoring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (no threes) with zero rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes.

This is pretty much on par with what we expected and he should not be floating around any waiver wires. As long as he is healthy he'll be a major part of the Pacers' attack and has mid-round upside.
Jan 24 - 1:44 AM

George Hill (groin) will be on the active roster for Friday's game vs. Miami.

While he isn't starting, is appears that he will play, and that will likely hurt the value of C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. He's not a must-start guy tonight as he'll likely be eased back into things, but he deserves to be owned in all leagues.
Jan 23 - 6:48 PM

George Hill (groin) is expected to return to action vs. the Heat on Friday.

Hill won't immediately join the starting lineup but his return is still bad news for the limited value of C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. Hill hasn't played since Dec. 31 and may need a few games to scrape off the rust, but he belongs on a roster in all fantasy leagues.
Jan 23 - 12:14 PM

George Hill (groin) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

He has been sidelined since Dec. 31, so this is welcome news for his owners. Hill's return would likely send C.J. Watson back to the bench, ruining his already limited value. Donald Sloan would also likely fall out of the rotation completely, so owners in deep leagues should have another plan ready. If Hill is somehow available in your league, he is more than worth a look.
Jan 22 - 3:52 PM

George Hill (groin) will miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

This will be his 11th straight game on the sidelines, and he has only been able to play in five games so far this season. Hill did return to practice on Tuesday suggesting that his return is getting closer, but there is no telling when we will see him in uniform again. C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to fill the void for the Pacers, but neither player is reliable enough to use in most leagues.
Jan 21 - 10:56 AM

George Hill (groin) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, but his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks has not yet been determined.

We'll get another update on Hill following Wednesday's shootaround, but his return to practice can be viewed as a positive sign. If he is able to go, C.J. Watson would likely head back to the bench and his already limited value would take a hit. Stay tuned.
Jan 20 - 6:07 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

He is hopeful to play on Wednesday and he had almost no chance to play tonight. Hill has just five games under his belt due to a knee injury to start the season, but this groin injury has been nagging him for a few seasons. He's worth a look in all leagues, but it's certainly hard to trust him considering how frail he's been.
Jan 19 - 3:14 PM

Coach Frank Vogel said that he expects George Hill (groin) to return to action during the upcoming road trip.

There is reportedly a small chance that we could see Hill play on Monday vs. Houston, but Wednesday vs. Atlanta is more likely. He has had some tough luck with injuries this season, but if he is floating around the waiver wire he is definitely worth a look in most leagues. C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to run the point for the Pacers until Hill eventually returns.
Jan 17 - 6:33 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play on Saturday against Charlotte as expected.

This will be his ninth straight game on the sidelines and even though he returned to practice on Thursday, there is no telling when he will be back in uniform. We should have another update on Hill soon, so owners should continue to remain patent for the time being. C.J. Watson will continue to run the point for Indiana while Donald Sloan will remain in the rotation as well.
Jan 17 - 9:47 AM

George Hill (groin) practiced on Thursday, but he remains out for Friday's game vs. Detroit and Saturday's game vs. Charlotte.

Hill's next opportunity to play will be Monday's game vs. Houston, but with him sidelined C.J. Watson will likely continue to start and he makes for a decent low-budget plug-and-play option in daily leagues with averages of 12.3 points, 3.8 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers as the starting point guard in Indiana. C.J. Miles will also see some increased opportunity with Hill out of the lineup.
Jan 15 - 3:00 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play against the Wolves on Tuesday.

He has a ton of groin injuries in the past two seasons and the Pacers were secretive about his quad injury from earlier this season, so Hill could miss more time. It should be C.J. Watson, Rodney Stuckey and Donald Sloan handling the point guard minutes. This probably won't be the last injury for Hill this season.
Jan 12 - 2:55 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play in Saturday's game vs. the 76ers.

His bad luck continues and there is still no indication on when he will return to action. His owners should continue to remain patient because the Pacers are going to need Hill down the stretch. Expect C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan to see increased run in Hill's absence.
Jan 10 - 12:58 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play against the Celtics on Friday.

He was already ruled out on Sunday and there's no indication that he'll be able to return on Saturday against the 76ers. Hill's groin injury has easily been his biggest ailment in the past two seasons, so he could miss more time. Expect Donald Sloan to be in the rotation with C.J. Watson (foot) and Rodney Stuckey not at 100 percent.
Jan 8 - 9:26 PM

George Hill (groin) is out against the Warriors on Wednesday as expected.

His next chance to play will be on Friday against the Celtics, but at this point it doesn't look like he has a good chance to play in that one either. C.J. Watson (foot) and Rodney Stuckey (groin) are both questionable for Wednesday, meaning Donald Sloan is going to have to step up in a big way.
