The Pacers will not rest George Hill on Wednesday, though he may not play the entire game.
Hill is averaging 3.5 assists this season, which have created an average of 11.8 points per 48 minutes for the Pacers. That ranks him 112th among qualifying players, sandwiched between Evan Turner and Marc Gasol. It's a paltry mark for a starting point guard, though in fairness the Pacers' offense doesn't give him many opportunities. Apr 15 - 2:27 PM

George Hill scored three points in 23 minutes vs. the Thunder on Sunday with two assists and four fouls.

A lot of players get into foul trouble against the Thunder and Hill couldn't find a rhythm. He's had plenty of bumps in the road all season, but scoring just three points in his last two games since resting on Wednesday is one of his lowest lows. He'll look to turn it around in the season finale on Wednesday in an important game.
Apr 13 - 4:20 PM

George Hill might as well have bought a ticket to Friday's one-sided loss to the Heat, posting just four assists and two turnovers without taking a single shot in a whopping 33 minutes.

We're not sure how Frank Vogel is going to handle this back-breaking loss but C.J. Watson (10 points, one assist, 19 minutes) is at least willing to compete. Watson is coming off a longer-term injury and it's unclear how many minutes he could theoretically handle, but the Pacers have to look at any and all options as their collapse has reached historic proportions.
Apr 12 - 12:25 AM

George Hill (rest) will join the Pacers' other four starters on the sidelines for Wednesday's game.

The Pacers have lost seven of their past nine games and coach Frank Vogel believes that exhaustion is part of the problem. He has a point, as 27-year-old Hill's shooting numbers have declined while playing 35 minutes per game since the All-Star break. Donald Sloan will get the start at PG on Wednesday, with support from C.J. Watson (elbow).
Apr 9 - 1:45 PM

George Hill scored just eight points in 38 minutes vs. John Wall and the Wizards on Friday, adding three rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Pacers' road loss.

He scored two points in 41 minutes of action on Wednesday and is a combined 4-of-10 from the field in Indy's past two games. Playing time hasn't been an issue for Hill, who is averaging 36 minutes per game in March, but he's shooting just 39.0 percent from the field (32.0 percent from downtown), and his mediocre assists (3.8) and steals (0.8) aren't making up the deficit.
Mar 28 - 10:00 PM

George Hill hit just 1-of-4 shots for two points, four rebounds and four assists despite playing 41 minutes on Wednesday.

He also missed a pair of big free throws with the game on the line late and Larry Bird probably had some words with him after the game. The Pacers held on for the win and Hill had 17 points and four dimes on Monday, but the Pacers simply need him to play better than this going forward.
Mar 27 - 12:35 AM

George Hill scored 17 points on 6-of-10 from the field during Monday's 89-77 win with two boards, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was the only player on his team to shoot over 50 percent while shooting the ball more than once. Hill has shot over 50 percent just once in his previous 10 March games, averaging 9.9 points, 4.3 boards, 3.7 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.3 triples. Despite the lackluster scoring, he's still worth owning in standard formats.
Mar 24 - 11:43 PM

George Hill hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points, two rebounds and five assists in Saturday's loss to Memphis.

Hill has scored seven or fewer points in three of his last five games and hasn't handed out more than five assists in any of them. He's not alone, as most of his teammates were just as bad tonight, and the Pacers no longer look like a beast in the East. Hill is averaging just 6.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-poiniters while shooting 31 percent over his last five games. Start him at your own risk.
Mar 22 - 10:37 PM

George Hill scored 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds, nine assists and two steals over 39 minutes against the Sixers on Friday.

Hill came into the game with right (shooting) hand injury and his shoulder has been an issue for a few weeks. We don't want to overreact to one game against the Sixers but it's possible that he's starting to heal up.
Mar 14 - 10:09 PM

According to the Associated Press, George Hill appeared to hurt his right (shooting) hand during the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win over the Celtics.

The Pacers didn't update Hill's status when discussing their injuries on Thursday, so we suspect he's fine. That said, it's worth checking back before Friday's 7pm ET tip against the lowly Sixers. C.J. Watson (elbow) is ready to return and would be an interesting plug-n-play in this spot if Hill were to get scratched.
Mar 14 - 12:22 PM

Coming off a four-point dud on Friday, George Hill scored 20 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in Sunday's loss to Dallas.

This was Hill's first 20-point game in over a month, and he's been held to single digits in three of his past five games. Given that this outburst came against Jose Calderon and the Mavs' sketchy perimeter defense, it's unwise to expect a repeat performance vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.
Mar 9 - 11:11 PM

George Hill hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds and one assist in Wednesday's loss.

Sure, some assists would have been nice, but based on the garbage lines his teammates put up tonight, this one looks pretty darn good. He iced his bothersome shoulder after the game, but we doubt it has anything to do with tonight's game. He missed a couple games recently with the injury and the ice is probably just a natural progression as he recovers from the injury.
Mar 5 - 10:24 PM

George Hill (left shoulder) returned from his two-game absence on Tuesday with eight points, seven boards, three assists and one turnover on 3-of-9 shooting in 35 minutes.

He shot the ball well before his injury with four of his previous five games including a shooting percentage of at least 50 percent, but obviously one bad game tonight isn't enough to draw a correlation to his shooting and shoulder injury. Hill has done enough in field goal percentage, free throw percentage, steals and triples to be worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 4 - 10:55 PM

George Hill (shoulder), Paul George (tailbone) and Ian Mahinmi (hip) will all be active for the Pacers on Tuesday.

All three players might be sore as they take on the visiting Warriors, but it's safe to deploy them as usual. Hill's return after a two-game absence will send C.J. Watson back to the bench, ending Watson's brief flirtation with fantasy value.
Mar 4 - 5:31 PM

George Hill (shoulder) is expected to play against Golden State on Tuesday.

Hill had missed the Pacers' last two games with a bruised left shoulder, but went through shootaround on Tuesday and will suit up against the Warriors. C.J. Watson had a solid game filling in for Hill on Sunday, but will return to a bench role when Hill returns to the court Tuesday.
