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.

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.

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.
Oct 21 - 9:49 PM

George Hill filled up the stat sheet against the Mavs on Saturday with 10 points, nine rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers on 3-of-11 from the field.

If David West (ankle) misses time, Hill is going to be a huge part of the offense. He was more of an off-the-ball guy last season, but that'll change. The former Spur will always be known for being dealt for Kawhi Leonard, but he'll have his best chance to produce this year. He's a high-upside target in the late-middle rounds.
Oct 18 - 9:41 PM

George Hill hit 5-of-9 shots for 11 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in Wednesday's loss to Cleveland.

In his three preseason game Hill is averaging 13 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 3-pointers per game. After another disappointing season last year, Hill looks like a very promising point guard prospect this season, and can be had in the later rounds of most drafts. The depleted Pacers will need everything he can give.
Oct 15 - 11:28 PM

George Hill (rest) will not play in Sunday's preseason game vs. the Mavericks.

Hill will be asked to step it up on the offensive end this season with Paul George on the sidelines and Lance Stephenson no longer in town. He doesn't have any competition for minutes, and should be able to return solid value as a mid-round selection in standard leagues.
Oct 12 - 1:32 PM

George Hill made 4-of-8 from the field against the Magic on Friday with two rebounds, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

C.J. Watson is still out of the lineup and Hill has yet to see any competition for minutes at the point guard spot. Rodney Stuckey hasn't done much in his brief time in the starting lineup, so Hill is a fairly safe option in the middle rounds. He should be able to score in the teens with around 1.5 triples and plenty of other stats.
Oct 10 - 9:28 PM

George Hill played 20 minutes and hit 6-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to 17 points, six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's preseason win.

He suffered a bruised lower back just before the half but started the third quarter and looked fantastic. With Lance Stephenson (CHA) and Paul George (broken leg) gone, Hill will be looked to for production at the point. Expect a bounce-back season for the Indy native, but don't overpay for him, as he probably won't be this good on most nights.
Oct 7 - 11:17 PM

George Hill left Tuesday's game just before halftime after suffering a lower back bruise, but returned to start the second half.

If the injury were at all serious he would have quickly been ruled out for the rest of the night. He should be fine and be the Pacers starting point guard on opening night.
Oct 7 - 8:04 PM

George Hill said on Monday that he didn't do anything different this offseason.

It's mildly interesting because Lance Stephenson is in Charlotte and Paul George (leg) is out for the season. Hill may have more scoring responsibilities this year, so he will need to improve on his 42.2 percent from the field after the break. He's a risk-reward pick in the late-middle rounds.
Sep 29 - 11:42 AM

Pacers coach Frank Vogel expects George Hill to have "a big year" with Lance Stephenson gone and Paul George injured.

"[Hill] was asked to sort of defer a lot last year to Paul and to Lance and I think he was capable of doing a lot more than he showed," Vogel said. Hill's usage rate plummeted to a career-low 14.8 last season, and he attempted a mere 8.1 shots in 32 minutes per game. His stats should jump across the board this year, making him a sneaky PG to target after the middle rounds.

Pacers president Larry Bird reiterated that he'd like to acquire a point guard who can "break down the defenses."

"We’re always looking," said Bird. "A great point guard is hard to get. We’re happy with George Hill, and C.J. [Watson] has done a great job for us." Indiana has reportedly inquired about Goran Dragic and Rajon Rondo, but that seems like due diligence and nothing has come of their interest. At the moment, the Pacers' primary focus is retaining free agent SG Lance Stephenson.
