Indiana coach Frank Vogel said that he isn't expecting the Pacers to make any trades at the deadline.
George Hill has been linked to Atlanta in a potential deal for Jeff Teague, but that rumor has lost some steam in recent days. Hill is a great fit next to Monta Ellis and Paul George because of his ability to play off the ball, so Vogel is likely telling the truth here. Hill's value should be safe moving forward.

Coach Frank Vogel said that George Hill's ability to play off the ball is "invaluable" to the Pacers.

"He’s shooting the ball well," Vogel said. "That’s needed because, obviously, we have Paul George back this year and we have Monta [Ellis] and we’re putting the ball in his hands a ton so [Hill’s] ability to play off the ball makes him invaluable really to what we’re doing." Hill has been a top-40 player in standard leagues over the last five games, averaging 14.0 points, 4.6 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 3-pointers on 51.0 percent shooting from the field.
Feb 6 - 11:34 AM

George Hill scored 23 points with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Cavs on Monday during a 111-106 overtime loss.

He looked to have a minor hip injury in the first half, but he played through it and looked great. Hill lit it up in January from beyond the arc, making 51.1 percent from that range for 2.1 per game. He quietly put up top-50 value in 2016 so far.
Feb 1 - 10:06 PM

George Hill scored 18 points with eight rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

He did suffer a minor injury tonight and was briefly in pain on the bench, but he returned and looked fine for the most part. Hill's minutes are back up now and he's coming off a 15-point, 40-minute game on Tuesday, so he's easily back to being a must-start player.
Jan 28 - 9:44 PM

George Hill will start against the Clippers on Tuesday.

Hill came off the bench on Saturday following the birth of his son, but will return to the starting lineup against the Clips on Tuesday. Hill should see a full complement of minutes on Tuesday and can be safely started in all fantasy leagues.
Jan 26 - 12:16 PM

George Hill returned from a week absence on Saturday against the Kings, scoring eight points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes off the bench.

His shot was off and the rust was apparent. Hill is holding sixth-round value on the season and should be inserted back into all lineups now.
Jan 24 - 1:07 AM

George Hill (personal) will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Kings.

He has missed the past three games due to the birth of his first child, but it's odd that he's coming off the bench. Regardless, Hill's owners obviously shouldn't panic as Pacers coach Frank Vogel will likely just ease him back into action. Monta Ellis, Glenn Robinson III, Paul George, Lavoy Allen and Jordan Hill will start on Saturday, but it will be interesting to see if impressive rookie Joseph Young remains in the rotation.
Jan 23 - 9:10 PM

George Hill (personal) is expected to rejoin the Pacers in Sacramento for Saturday's game vs. the Kings.

Hill will miss Friday's game vs. the Warriors, but he should be back in uniform for Saturday's game against the Kings. When he does get back in the lineup, Glenn Robinson III will return to the bench and Joseph Young may fall out of the rotation entirely. Hill announced on Instagram that his long-time girlfriend gave birth to the couples first child on Thursday, and that explains why he has been away from the team for so long.
Jan 21 - 4:13 PM

George Hill (personal) and Rodney Stuckey (ankle) will not play against the Warriors on Friday.

First and foremost, we hope everything is OK with George Hill. This will be his third game out of the lineup due to personal reasons, which will make Monta Ellis the starting point guard. Glenn Robinson III will likely start again, but it's been Joe Young doing the most impressing right now as the backup point guard. We hope to see Hill back on the court soon.
Jan 20 - 3:32 PM

George Hill (personal) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

He is still not with the team and will miss his second straight game, but Pacers coach Frank Vogel is hopeful that he will be available on Friday vs. the Warriors. With Hill out of the lineup, Monta Ellis will draw another start at point guard and Glenn Robinson III is expected to start at the two.
Jan 19 - 7:40 PM

George Hill (personal) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Hill is still in Indiana tending to a personal matter, so he's probably a lot closer to doubtful for tonight's game. With Hill on the sidelines, Monta Ellis and Paul George will be running the show on offense with Joseph Young and Glenn Robinson III having the opportunity for some extended run off the bench.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel is hopeful that George Hill (personal) will play on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

Hill is still in Indiana dealing with a personal matter, but he could join up with the team on Tuesday morning. If Hill is able to make it to the game on time, he will start at point guard which will push Glenn Robinson III back to the bench and will shatter the value of Joseph Young.
Jan 18 - 5:35 PM

George Hill (personal) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

Hill is not even traveling with the team, and it's unclear why he is away from the team. Monta Ellis will likely start at point guard on Sunday, while Joseph Young could see minutes as the backup point guard. Hill's next chance to play will be on Tuesday vs. the Suns.
Jan 17 - 1:30 PM

George Hill (personal) did not travel with the team for Sunday's game and it is unclear if he will rejoin them against the Nuggets.

He missed Friday's shootaround for personal reasons and made it back in time. If Hill can't make it back in time, Monta Ellis would likely start at point guard and the Pacers may start C.J. Miles at shooting guard. There should be an update tomorrow.
Jan 16 - 4:19 PM

George Hill (personal) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He was also questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards for personal reasons, but he did play and scored 19 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers. If Hill is not able to play on Sunday, Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles would benefit the most, while Joe Young could see minutes as the backup point guard.
