George Hill (back) fouled out of Game 2 with six points, three assists and two turnovers in 20 minutes of action.
Hill's back tightened up on him recently but he played through the injury tonight, and the low minutes were due to pervasive foul trouble. Backup PG Jose Calderon wound up playing 13 minutes tonight and will continue to have a key role if Hill's back limits him going forward. For now we're assuming he'll be fine for Game 3 on Friday.

The Cavaliers removed George Hill (back) from the injury report.

He's been limited by a stiff back, but he'll be good to go for Game 2 on Wednesday after originally being listed as questionable. Hill clearly wasn't himself in Game 1, scoring just seven points on seven shots in 18.5 minutes.

George Hill (back) is questionable for Game 2 on Wednesday.

Hill's back flared up on him in Game 1 and it was still stiff at Monday's practice. The good news is that the Cavs have over 48 hours before tip-off. If Hill can't go, that means the Cavs will need both Jordan Clarkson and Jose Calderon to step up.
Apr 16 - 1:49 PM

George Hill struggled mightily in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Pacers, finishing with just seven points on seven shots in 18.5 minutes.

There was no revenge game here for Hill, who played less than half of the available minutes and was a -14 during his time on the court. After the game, Ty Lue revealed Hill's back was too stiff to play much in the second half, so we're putting him on the injury report as a precaution. Like the rest of his teammates not named LeBron, Hill will need to be a lot better if the Cavs are going to make it past the Pacers, let alone reach the NBA Finals once again.
Apr 15 - 6:28 PM

George Hill (ankle) played 20 minutes on Monday vs. the Knicks, scoring five points with four assists, two rebounds, two steals and one triple.

He returned from a four-game absence, so the low minutes aren't a complete surprise. The Cavaliers are still fighting the 76ers for the No. 3 seed and they probably want to get Hill back into a rhythm, so for now we'd expect to see him play in the season finale.
Apr 9 - 10:11 PM

George Hill (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

He's back after a four-game absence. Jose Calderon (hamstring) is also available. Hood was able to practice on Sunday and went through the morning shootaround, and we've yet to hear about any restrictions.
Apr 9 - 6:09 PM

George Hill (ankle) returned to full practice on Sunday.

Jose Calderon (hamstring) also practiced, though it's not clear if they will be ready in time for Monday's game vs. the Knicks. Cedi Osman played 33 minutes in his last start and should get the biggest bump if Calderon and Hill aren't ready, but his upside isn't great. Hill has missed four games in a row and will likely have some restrictions if he's cleared.
Apr 8 - 12:24 PM

George Hill (ankle) will not play Friday against the 76ers.

If Jose Calderon can't play, that should put Cedi Osman in the first unit again. Osman made the defensive play of the day with a steal on John Wall to close out the win, but he may not see more than 20 minutes.
Apr 6 - 2:32 PM

George Hill (left ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

This will be his third straight game on the shelf and the Cavs will play it safe with the playoffs looming. Jose Calderon has been surprisingly effective in his absence, averaging 13.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.5 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.5 triples in his last two outings.
Apr 5 - 12:08 PM

George Hill (left ankle) is listed as out in the game notes for Tuesday's contest against Toronto.

This will be the second straight game Hill has missed due to the ankle injury he suffered last Friday when he stepped on Rajon Rondo's foot. Jose Calderon will likely draw another start, and Jordan Clarkson will see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Of the two, Clarkson is the more attractive fantasy pickup.
Apr 3 - 9:25 AM

George Hill (left ankle) and Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Sunday against the Mavs.

An MRI on Hill showed a left ankle sprain, so it's certainly possible he will be missing more time. If there is good news, this isn't to his troublesome right ankle, but of course Hill has taken a long time to recover from injuries. Jordan Clarkson and Jose Calderon will pick up minutes with Clarkson being the better add in fantasy.
Mar 31 - 4:33 PM

George Hill (ankle) will not return on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

He turned his ankle by stepping on Rajon Rondo's foot and was ruled out about 20 minutes later. Hill will be re-evaluated on Saturday morning, and he should be considered questionable for Sunday's game vs. Dallas. Jordan Clarkson is the biggest winner here, while veteran Jose Calderon will also have to step up.
Mar 30 - 9:54 PM

George Hill (left ankle) went to the locker room in the third quarter on Friday.

He stepped on Rajon Rondo's foot and turned his ankle. Hill limped slowly off the floor, but he was in some pain as he stopped quickly near the bench. If he's out, we may see some more Jose Calderon and Jordan Clarkson.
Mar 30 - 9:37 PM

George Hill scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in 37 minutes.

Hill got off to a really slow start in this one, missing his first three shots with his first make coming on a buzzer-beating trey to end the first half. He was much more aggressive in the second half, though, scoring 12 of his 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Clarkson finished with 18 points (6-of-12 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), one 3-pointer and one rebound in 28 minutes off the bench.
Mar 25 - 4:55 PM

George Hill scored 22 points during Wednesday's win vs. Toronto, going 10-of-11 from the field with two 3-pointers.

Hill added three rebounds, two steals and one block in 36 minutes, marking easily one of his best games since joining the Cavs in early February. The absence of Kyle Korver (personal) and Rodney Hood (back) opened up the rotation, and it helped that Toronto's defense was unusually lax, so we're not reading much into Hill's mini eruption.
