George Hill carved up the Sixers' defense on Sunday, finishing a 94-74 home victory with 17 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two steals.
He shot 8-of-16 with one 3-pointer and did his damage in just 32 minutes of action. The fact that he was matched up against Ish Smith and Isaiah Canaan certainly helped, but Hill has found his groove after an injury-plagued start to the year and he's regained must-start fantasy status.

George Hill logged the first triple-double of his career on Friday during a 93-86 win over the Cavs with 15 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, one block, two steals and two turnovers.

Since Monday, there has been a triple-double every night this week. Hill has really stepped up with 7.0 assists per game in his last five, adding averages of 12.8 points, 4.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.4 treys. He's not shooting the ball well, but he is a must-start player right now. Plus, it's great to see his groin injury is behind him.

George Hill shot 4-of-13 from the field on Sunday, finishing a surprising win vs. the Warriors with 12 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

Hill is shooting just 38.8 percent over his past five games and has yet to play more than 30 minutes in a game since returning from his groin injury on Jan. 23. The Pacers' caution is understandable and Hill is still providing fantasy value thanks to solid 3-pointers, assists and steals, in addition to low turnovers from the PG spot. He should only get better in the season's final eight weeks.
Feb 22 - 8:50 PM

George Hill cooled off against the 76ers on Friday with seven points, four rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

He had some serious momentum heading into the break, averaging 15.0 points, 2.8 boards, 6.0 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys on 50.0 percent from the field in his previous five games. Hill is going to play around 30 minutes most nights and we expect him to be better on Sunday against Golden State.
Feb 20 - 11:51 PM

George Hill (groin) isn't on a minute-limit but coach Frank Vogel doesn't intend to play him more than 28-32 minutes per game.

"[Hill's playing time] is unlimited, but we want to be smart," Vogel said. "I'll probably keep it around seven or eight minutes a quarter." That's enough run for Hill to maintain solid value in all formats and he's safe to keep active -- the conservative minutes may actually be a benefit for owners if it prevents Hill from suffering another setback.
Feb 19 - 1:46 PM

George Hill hit 6-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to 17 points, nine assists and two steals.

That's more like it. This is the type of line owners have been waiting on all season, but Hill has been too banged up to get into a groove. Hopefully he gets some rest over the All-Star break and will be ready to do this on a consistent basis the rest of the way. Fingers crossed. C.J. Watson came off the bench and played 26 minutes, but hit 2-of-6 shots for seven points and three assists.
Feb 12 - 12:42 AM

George Hill sank the game-winner to seal a 103-102 win vs. Charlotte on Sunday, finishing with 11 points, one 3-pointer, one rebound, three assists and two steals.

Hill's 20-minute limit has been lifted and he logged 27 minutes on Sunday, a number which should spike after he rests up during the All-Star break. Tonight's line was relatively quiet but Hill has too much rest-of-season potential to be floating on any waiver wires.
Feb 8 - 9:48 PM

George Hill played 26 minutes against the Cavs on Friday with 20 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

The minutes held steady at 26 just like on Wednesday. Hill made the Pacers look a lot better on offense and he has improved their pace. He may still have a minutes cap until he can stay healthy for over a week, but he's worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:37 PM

George Hill made 8-of-12 from the field for 20 points against the Pistons during a 114-109 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, six assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He played great and had no trouble beating the Pistons with his dribble. The talent hasn't been a problem for Hill this season and his groin strain just hasn't been able to go away. He should be picked up in all leagues and his owners will just cross the injury bridge when they get to it.
Feb 4 - 10:27 PM

George Hill will start against the Pistons on Wednesday and will remain on a minutes restriction.

The minutes caps expected to be around 28 with four seven-minute stints. Hill hasn't been able to stay on the court and has played just 10 games this season, so it's hard to be too bullish on him staying active. He's worth grabbing in standard leagues and his owners can cut him at the first sign of trouble.
Feb 2 - 2:50 PM

George Hill played 22 minutes against the Kings on Saturday with 14 points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 6-of-15 from the field.

He picked up some extra run compared to his 12-minute game from Thursday. Hill has not said he's 100 percent and the Pacers will likely keep his minutes down for a little while longer. He is worth owning in standard leagues for now, but it seems inevitable he'll get hurt again.
Jan 31 - 9:57 PM

George Hill was a full participant for Friday's light practice, but he will continue to come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Hill is expected to remain with a minutes restriction for Saturday's game, so owners still holding on will need to remain patient as Hill is eased back into the rotation. After Saturday, the Pacers don't play again until Wednesday, and there's a chance his workload is increased for that game.
Jan 30 - 1:57 PM

George Hill played 12 minutes off the bench because of garbage time on Thursday, finishing with eight points, two rebounds and three assists.

There were some bright spots, but he still doesn't look right and his quickness is just not there. Based on tonight, he's likely going to have a minutes cap for a couple weeks. If you don't feel like waiting for him to come around and there is a promising player on your wire, it's not a bad idea to drop Hill.
Jan 29 - 10:07 PM

George Hill will remain on his 20 minutes per game limit until Saturday, after which the Pacers hope to increase his workload.

While Hill has been limited to 20 minutes per game over his last three outings, he's still been able to put up serviceable numbers, averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He'll have a favorable matchup against the Knicks tonight, so feel free to roll him out there.
Jan 29 - 5:37 PM

George Hill (leg) missed practice on Wednesday.

"To not be able to start the season with these guys and go through all these battles with them and then coming back for a couple games and it's [another injury], that [is bad]," Hill said. Not good. He just can't stay healthy this season and is almost a lock to miss games at some point. We should consider him questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday.
