George Hill turned in a big-time revenge game during a 109-100 win over the Pacers on Saturday, scoring 30 points with six rebounds, five assists, one steal, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
A lot of Pacers fans were not the biggest Hill fans because he wasn't a typical point guard and made his money sitting in the left corner and cashing in. Well, he's certainly not in Utah, but Hill wasn't out there to prove anyone wrong. "No statement needed," Hill said after the game. He's having a monster season and he really needs to stay heathy.

George Hill scored 13 points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes before fouling out against the Mavs on Friday.

The ankle injury didn't seem to bother him too much, but foul trouble likely cost him playing time. The law of averages has had its say lately with Hill in a mini-slump over his last three, averaging 14.7 points, 3.0 boards, 3.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 treys on 36.4 percent from the field. We all knew he was going to cool down after a magnificent start, but Hill should still be able to flirt with early-round value going forward. Stay healthy.

George Hill (ankle) will play on Friday night against the Mavs.

He suffered a late ankle tweak on Monday, but he was never considered serious. That said, Hill's injury track record this season is automatically cause for concern, so his owners have to be happy to hear he'll be good to go. He should be starting in all leagues.
Jan 19 - 3:42 PM

George Hill 7-of-18 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for 17 points, eight rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes of Monday's win over the Suns.

He left late in the game with a sprained ankle, but it doesn't appear to be serious and he wasn't noticeably limping after the game. Injuries have been a huge problem for Hill this season, so check to make sure he's good to go against the Mavericks on Friday against the Mavericks. The good news is that he has a full three days to recover before Friday's game. If he's out, Shelvin Mack would benefit the most.
Jan 17 - 12:07 AM

George Hill scored 22 points with five 3-pointers in Friday's blowout win over the Pistons.

He shot a blistering 8-of-13 from the field with four rebounds, one assist and one turnover, but only played 27 minutes due to the lopsided score. Hill is averaging 17.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.8 triples over his last four games since returning from a concussion, but all he has to do now is stay on the court. He's been a top-30 player in standard leagues when you don't factor in the games he's missed.
Jan 14 - 2:09 AM

George Hill hit 5-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's 100-92 win over the Cavaliers.

He's been back for three games and is averaging 15.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 3-pointers since his return. Now owners just need to get Hill back in the lineup and hope he doesn't go down again. After a very hot start to the season, Hill missed all but two December games with a concussion and a toe injury.
Jan 10 - 11:48 PM

George Hill scored 15 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in a sloppy loss to the Grizzlies on Sunday.

Hill recently returned from a concussion and severe facial laceration, but the fact that he played in back-to-back games confirms he's fine. Utah's prized offseason acquisition has been awesome when healthy this season, posting early-round roto value, and his owners just have to hope he avoids another fluky injury.
Jan 8 - 11:03 PM

George Hill played 33 minutes in his return to the lineup during a 94-92 win over the Wolves on Saturday, scoring 19 points with five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

What happened to the minutes limit? He played the entire fourth quarter despite the talk of him only playing 3-5 minute stints. The performance side of things has certainly been there with his second-round value per game on the season. Plus, the Jazz are an impressive 11-3 with G-Hill in the lineup. He really just needs to stay on the court and there's a good chance he will after a litany of strange injuries this season.
Jan 7 - 11:52 PM

George Hill (concussion) will get the start against the Wolves on Saturday.

In case you missed it, he's likely only going to get stints in the 3-5 minutes range, so he's likely going to be capped at 20 minutes. That means Shelvin Mack should still be able to get around 20 minutes, but is still not a fantasy option. Hill should be starting in all leagues and hopefully he can stay on the court this time around.
Jan 7 - 7:14 PM

George Hill (concussion) likely will play him in 3-5 minute stints instead of 8-9 on Saturday night against the Wolves.

He'll likely get either three or four stints, so Hill is likely only looking at 15-20 minutes tonight. He had his sutures out on Friday and was fitted for a mouthpiece, as well. Hill isn't a DFS option tonight, but owners in season-long leagues should get him back in their lineups.
Jan 7 - 6:59 PM

George Hill (lip, concussion) has been cleared to play in Saturday's game against the Wolves.

He has gone through each step of the concussion protocol and has been symptom-free in the process. Hill suffered his concussion on Saturday and missed the last three games. He may have a slight limit on his minutes tonight, but obviously go ahead and get him in your lineup. Shelvin Mack takes a bit hit.
Jan 7 - 3:17 PM

George Hill went through shootaround Saturday morning but is still listed as "out" for Saturday's game because he has not yet completed the full concussion protocol.

The Jazz play in Minnesota on Saturday and then in Memphis on Sunday. We will have to wait for an update from the team to see if Hill is any closer to getting cleared by the league, which is required before he can play in a game. Shelvin Mack will continue to start and see the majority of minutes at point guard.
Jan 7 - 1:20 PM

George Hill (concussion) will not play on Saturday against the Wolves.

This marks his fourth game in a row on the shelf and he still has not cleared the concussion protocol. This likely means he's doubtful for Sunday vs. the Grizzles as well, but the Jazz will provide an update at the Saturday morning shootaround. Shelvin Mack will get the bulk of the PG minutes in Hill's absence and is coming off a 17-point effort.
Jan 6 - 8:43 PM

George Hill (concussion) will not play Thursday vs. Toronto.

This will be Hill's third straight game on the sidelines and his 23rd missed game of the 2016-17 season. He's been fantastic in the 13 games he's suited up for, but unfortunately, he's been watching from the sidelines more often than not. Dante Exum (knee) is questionable, and if he's also out it'll be Shelvin Mack and Raul Neto manning the point guard position, with Mack earning the start. For now, we'll consider Hill questionable for Saturday's game in Minnesota.
Jan 4 - 7:06 PM

George Hill (lip laceration, concussion) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Boston.

Hill has been wonderful when he's played this season, unfortunately he simply has been unable to stay on the floor. Hill has appeared in just two games since November 29th. Shelvin Mack will likely draw the start at point guard once again for Utah, which makes him an intriguing DFS tournament option.
