George Hill finished with 16 points, six rebounds and six assists over 38 minutes in Monday's loss at Indiana against his former teammates.
Hill is good for 16 or more points in four of his past five outings as he appears back on track after dealing with a toe injury earlier in the month. The only complaint from fantasy owners Monday is his 0-for-7 mark from the perimeter. As long as he can stay healthy he is a must-start fantasy option in most formats. Mar 20 - 10:10 PM

George Hill scored 18 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

After just 18 minutes in a bad game from the first unit in his return last week, Hill has played at least 31 minutes in each of his last four games. He hasn't really looked hobbled, but the offense is going through Gordon Hayward more compared to when Hill was going strong. Still, Hill averaged 15.8 points, 5.3 boards, 3.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 treys on 45.8 percent from the field. As long as he's healthy, Hill is a must-start player.
Mar 18 - 11:45 PM

George Hill hit just 3-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, two assists and a steal in Thursday's loss to Cleveland.

He scored just nine in his return to action from a toe injury on Saturday, but then played very well on Monday and Wednesday before struggling tonight. The good news is that his minutes were there and he's healthy again, so he should bounce back against Rajon Rondo and the Bulls on Saturday.

The Nets will reportedly pursue George Hill as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Hill may not have a ton of interest in going to Brooklyn, but the Nets could offer him a ton of money, which could perhaps sway his opinion. Brooklyn will also reportedly go after restricted free agents Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Otto Porter, but chances are both Detroit and Washington will be matchup almost any offer that comes in on those guys, leaving Hill as one of the more realistic targets. It'll be interesting to see if the Nets can finally bring in a big name free agent this offseason.

George Hill scored nine points in his return to the lineup on Saturday, adding one rebound, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in just 18 minutes.

He had a tough time staying in front of Russell Westbrook in this game, but who doesn't? The Jazz fell behind early in this game and Dante Exum turned in one of his best games of the season, so coach Quin Snyder just stuck with Dante. Hill gets another tough matchup against Chris Paul and we expect him to play. While he does have four games this week, he has a road-road back-to-back set on Wednesday and Thursday, so there's a good chance he only plays in three games.
Mar 11 - 5:39 PM

George Hill, Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, Joe Johnson and Jeff Withey are starting against the Thunder on Saturday.

Hill is back after a couple days off. His toe has been a nagging injury for a while and he may have to manage it for the rest of the season. Still, he's played well enough to be considered as a must-start player. We'll see how he fares against Russell Westbrook today.
Mar 11 - 2:36 PM

George Hill (toe) is expected to play Saturday vs. OKC.

Hill had missed each of Utah's previous two games but appears ready to return to the lineup. He has been able to put up terrific fantasy numbers when healthy. Hopefully, the six days of rest allowed the nagging toe injury to settle down. Dante Exum will get bumped back to the bench with Hill returning to the lineup.
Mar 11 - 1:40 PM

George Hill (left toe) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

He's missed the last two games because of his nagging toe injury. If you watch Hill over the course of a game, you can see he's favoring his left foot at times, so it's been an ongoing thing. If he's out again, the Jazz will likely go with more of their no-PG lineups against Russell Westbrook, so that should help Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles, Alec Burks and Joe Johnson. Raul Neto also played well with 21 minutes on Wednesday.
Mar 10 - 2:53 PM

George Hill (toe) will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Hill's nagging toe injury won't go away and it's pretty clear he's playing through it based on some limping during games. With him out, it should be Dante Exum getting another start, but he hasn't played well and saw just 25 minutes on Monday. Alec Burks could be an interesting option to get more length and offense against up-tempo Rockets. Gordon Hayward and Joe Johnson should also slightly benefit.
Mar 8 - 6:43 PM

George Hill (toe soreness, rest) did not go through shootaround and he remains questionable to face the Rockets on Wednesday.

That left big toe has been a major issue for Hill this season, and with him sitting out shootaround, it's looking like he's going to miss his second straight game. Dante Exum will draw the start if he's out, and Gordon Hayward will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Joe Johnson also seems a bit unlikely to suit up after missing the past three games, but he does appear to have a shot to get back this evening considering he was at least able to participate (partially) in shoot-around. Gordon Hayward sees a 1.0% usage bump with Hill, Johnson and Favors off the floor, with Rodney Hood picking up arguably the biggest bump in value. Hood's usage jumps to 27.7% with those three off the floor, a 2.6% bump from his season total. Both Hayward and Hood will be elite targets assuming Hill and Johnson aren't able to play.

George Hill (toe soreness, rest) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

He was given a maintenance day on Monday vs. the Pelicans, but it's a concern that he's also listed on the injury report with soreness in his troublesome toe. If he misses his second game in a row, Dante Exum will get the bulk of the minutes at PG with Shelvin Mack (ankle) already ruled out. Exum is not a great option in fantasy.
Mar 7 - 8:51 PM

George Hill (toe soreness, rest), Joe Johnson (groin) and Shelvin Mack (ankle) have all been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

With both Hill and Mack on the sidelines, Dante Exum should slide back into the starting five, and Gordon Hayward will run the show on offense. Johnson's absence will open up some more minutes for Joe Ingles in the second unit. The Jazz are on the second leg of a back-to-back set, so they'll hold Hill out as a precaution to rest his left big toe, which is a move we've seen before. Hill owners can expect to have him available for Wednesday's game in Houston.

George Hill lit up the Nets for 34 points on 10-of-12 shooting (11-of-12 FTs) in a 112-97 win on Friday.

This comes on the heels of a report that Hill is seeking a four-year deal worth $132 million as a free agent this summer, so that was great timing by his agent. In all seriousness, the Nets have been the easiest matchup for opposing PGs all season, so Hill took advantage and added seven assists, two rebounds and three triples in 32 minutes. He looks healthy and can look forward to another tasty matchup on Sunday vs. the Kings.
Mar 4 - 12:26 AM

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, George Hill could "become a max player this summer."

The Jazz were unable to reach a deal on a contract extension before Tuesday's deadline, so Hill will hit the open market this summer as a free agent. The Jazz tried to lock him down through the 2019-20 season for roughly $88 million, but Hill's camp is expected to command $132 million over four years this summer. The Jazz are 25-11 with Hill on the floor this season and 12-13 in the games he's missed. George will be 31 years old this summer and has season averages of 17.2 points, 4.1 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 2.0 3-pointers. As good he's been, $132 million is a reach.

George Hill and the Jazz will not reach a deal on a contract extension, according to sources of Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune.

Hill and Utah reportedly had mutual interest on striking a deal on an extension, but ultimately they couldn't agree on the numbers. That means that Hill will be an unrestricted free agent when the offseason hits, and he's sure to generate plenty of interest around the league.
