George Hill hit just 3-of-12 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers, but also hit 5-of-5 free throws to finish Tuesday's big Game 5 win with 12 points, five rebounds and seven assists in a 96-92 win to take a 3-2 lead with Game 6 coming in Utah on Friday.
Hill didn't play all that well, but knocked down four clutch free throws with the game on the line and sent Chris Paul packing for a trip to Utah with the series on the line. CP3 dominated Hill tonight, but Hill came through from the free throw line when it mattered. The Jazz have a chance to put the Clippers out of their misery on Friday, and Hill will likely have to have some big plays in order for it to happen. Apr 26 - 1:39 AM

George Hill scored 16 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes during a 97-95 win over the Clippers on Saturday.

He looked great and perhaps he's healthy for the first time in a while. Hill's foot injuries have kept his minutes and game totals limited, so getting 37 minutes out of Hill will help offset the loss of Rudy Gobert (knee). Even against Chris Paul's defense, Hill should make an impact on the stat sheet during this series.
Apr 16 - 1:25 AM

George Hill is expected to play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

This is just a heads up for the oft-injured guard. He played very well on Monday with 20 points, so expect him to be a key piece against San Antonio. Revenge game?
Apr 12 - 3:16 PM

George Hill (groin) knocked down seven of his nine field-goal attempts, including five of his seven 3-pointer tries, to finish with 20 points, five assists and two steals over 19 minutes.

Hill was making his way back from a groin injury and it was already known he'd be playing with a minutes restriction up to just 20 minutes. It remains uncertain if he'll also play in Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Spurs, so avoid plugging him back into the lineup in daily leagues and DFS play.
Apr 11 - 1:09 AM

George Hill (groin) will play "no more than 20" minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

While Hill is completely off the DFS radar, his return also ruins the fantasy appeal of Shelvin Mack and Dante Exum. He's also a low-end option in season-long leagues because of the restrictions. For now, it's unclear if the Jazz will let him play on Wednesday vs. the Spurs in the season finale.
Apr 10 - 9:01 PM

Quin Snyder said that he's expecting George Hill (groin) to play Monday vs. the Warriors.

Hill is still officially being listed as questionable for Monday's game, and we likely won't have an official update on him until just prior to tip-off, but it does seem likely that Hill will be able to return from a six-game absence tonight. He will, however, likely be dealing with a minutes limit, so he's not the most attractive guy to target in daily leagues.
Apr 10 - 2:12 PM

George Hill (strained right groin) is questionable to play vs. the Warriors on Monday.

Gordon Hayward (bruised quad) is also questionable, and Utah's offense will be running on fumes if neither of them can suit up for a potentially critical game -- they're in a virtual tie with L.A. for the No. 4 seed. If Hill can't suit up, expect to see plenty of Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack.
Apr 9 - 9:24 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

He gets ruled out before warmups and could miss more time. This is his sixth game out of the lineup in a row and the Jazz will really need him for the first round against the Clippers. Dante Exum should get another start while Shelvin Mack backs him up.
Apr 8 - 8:56 PM

George Hill (right groin strain) is doubtful to face the Blazers on Saturday night.

This looks like it'll be his sixth straight game out. Raul Neto is not on the injury report here, so he could be back from his groin strain. It should still be Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack getting the minutes at the point, but Gordon Hayward will carry the load again, following a 39-point gem on Friday.
Apr 8 - 4:29 PM

George Hill (groin) and Raul Neto (groin) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

Hill was doubtful to play in this game and will now miss his fifth straight. Hill has only played in 47 games this season, so he's probably not going to hit 50 for the second time in three seasons. With Hill out, it should be Shelvin Mack should have the best opportunity while Dante Exum starts. Be careful here.
Apr 7 - 8:17 PM

George Hill (groin) remains doubtful for Friday's game vs. Minnesota.

Hill has missed each of Utah's previous four games. With Raul Neto (groin) questionable, Shelvin Mack and Dante Exum are expected to continue splitting minutes at point guard. Neither are attractive fantasy options.
Apr 7 - 12:57 PM

George Hill (groin) is doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

This is actually a slight upgrade, as Hill was listed as out previously. This will be his fifth game in a row on the shelf, and considering he was able to partially practice on Thursday, it sounds like he's on track to return before the regular season ends. Shelvin Mack and Dante Exum will split the PG duties if Hill sits Friday.
Apr 6 - 1:39 PM

George Hill (groin), Derrick Favors (knee), Raul Neto (groin) and Rodney Hood (knee) have all been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

Hill has been unable to stay healthy all season long. This will be the fourth straight game he has missed due to this recent groin injury. Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack will continue to divvy up minutes at point guard, with Exum starting and Mack coming off the bench. This is a situation to avoid in standard leagues, but if you have to choose between the two, Mack offers slightly more upside than Exum.
Apr 4 - 1:05 PM

George Hill (groin) will not play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

He's had some tough luck with injuries this season and the Jazz are usually very cautious with their veteran PG. This will be his third game in a row on the shelf and there's no word if he will be ready for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers. Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack will continue to split the PG minutes with Mack offering more upside.
Apr 1 - 6:50 PM

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

He suffered the injury on Monday and will be missing his second straight game. On Wednesday, Dante Exum did not score in his 23 minutes while Shelvin Mack scored 14 points off the bench. Mack is probably the better play for DFS, but it's a big gamble on such a busy night. Hill's fantasy owners may have to consider dropping him.
