Solomon Hill started and hit 2-of-8 shots for two 3-pointers, 10 points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal in 33 minutes on Wednesday.
He's been hit or miss for a couple weeks now and with C.J. Miles healthy and starting to play better, Hill could struggle to hold onto his starting gig for much longer. Dec 18 - 2:29 AM

Solomon Hill struggled in a start against the Blazers on Saturday with eight points, seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

He made just 4-of-13 from the field and can't get it going. Hill was off to a horrible start in training camp and to start the season, but came on about a month ago. However, he's really fallen apart in his last five, making just 32.6 percent from the field for averages of 8.6 points, 3.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 0.2 steals. Leave him on the wire even with C.J. Miles (knee) banged up.
Dec 13 - 9:27 PM

Solomon Hill is starting in place of C.J. Miles (knee) on Saturday against the Blazers.

Hill was bumped from the starting lineup on Friday and will be thrust back into it with the Miles injury. Hill is really struggling right now, which prompted coach Frank Vogel to make the switch. Hill is a risky player to start tonight.
Dec 13 - 5:31 PM

Solomon Hill moved into a bench role on Friday but was productive when C.J. Miles (knee) left the game, scoring 16 points on 5-of-8 shootijng (1-of-2 from deep, 5-of-6 from the line) with three rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 30 minutes.

Miles is hoping to play Saturday so Hill's minutes are in jeopardy, and even when he was getting a full workload he was barely worth owning. Outside of deep leagues, owners shouldn't chase here.
Dec 13 - 12:50 AM

Solomon Hill will come off the bench against the Clippers on Friday.

He looked like he was safe, but only played 17 minutes on Wednesday. Hill is stuck in a bad slump over his last five, making just 34.1 percent from the field for 7.2 points per game. If you still own him in a standard, it's time to start looking for other options.
Dec 12 - 6:12 PM

Solomon Hill played just 17 minutes and hit 1-of-7 shots for four points and three assists in another start for the Pacers on Wednesday.

He has scored five or fewer points in three of his last five games and the Pacers benched most of their starters tonight, including Hill. He'll get hot again at some point, but the sudden emergence of C.J. Miles (30 points, 7 3-pointers tonight), could spell disaster for Hill going forward.
Dec 10 - 10:36 PM

Solomon Hill slid over to shooting guard against the Blazers on Thursday with 15 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

He couldn't get out of his own way for training camp and the first two weeks of the season, but he's pulling away from the other wings right now. Hill has still been barely inside the top 150 in the last two weeks and the return of David West probably won't help, so he's not a slam-dunk own in standards.
Dec 5 - 12:28 AM

Solomon Hill's streak of five straight games in double-digits ended on Tuesday, as he shot just 1-of-5 from the field to finish with two points.

Hill logged 29 minutes in another start at SF but only chipped in four rebounds, one assist and one steal, which isn't getting it done for fantasy owners. C.J. Miles and C.J. Watson both played well off the bench tonight and the Pacers' wing rotation is becoming uncomfortably crowded, which bodes ill for Hill's outlook.
Dec 2 - 11:48 PM

Solomon Hill scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, three assists and one steal in Monday's win over the Mavs.

Hill has top-120 value in 8-cat leagues with a full slate of minutes (34.0 mpg) on the year and in 9-cat leagues he's a borderline play for 12-team formats. With players returning, albeit in extremely unstable fashion, owners shouldn't be attached to parting with the relatively low upside player. The only way he jumps up a level is if he has an outrageous in-season improvement.
Nov 25 - 1:07 AM

Solomon Hill played 35 minutes against the Suns on Saturday with 13 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

With Rodney Stuckey (wrist) going down yet again, the Pacers are going to need more minutes out of Hill. He was already worth owning in standard leagues for his across-the-board output after a horrible start, but now the injury to Stuckey might solidify his value a little more.
Nov 22 - 9:52 PM

Pacers head coach pointed to Solomon Hll's growing maturity as a source of strength for the Pacers.

Hill had a game-winning putback for the Pacers on Wednesday, but it's his maturity and leadership that is impressing his coach. "From the time we interviewed him before the draft, it was glaring that he was a very mature guy," Vogel said. "The way he carried himself was as impressive to us as anything he did on the basketball court, so to see him show a leadership role this early is not surprising to me." While Hill's fantasy value will take a hit when David West (ankle) returns, his recent play makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 20 - 11:52 AM

Solomon Hill hit a game-winning putback against the Hornets on Wednesday during a 88-86 win, finishing with six points, five rebounds and three turnovers in 38 minutes.

His minutes held tonight while Chris Copeland's dropped, so that means he's viewed as the team's leading small forward right now. Hill has come a long way from his awful preseason and he should have value at least until David West (ankle) gets back, which will hurt Hill's shot total. He's worth owning in standard leagues right now.
Nov 20 - 12:12 AM

Solomon Hill had the first double-double of his career on Saturday during a 99-90 win over the Bulls, scoring 21 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

After a horrific start in the preseason and in the first four games of the year, Hill has really turned it on. He's getting to the line more and has seen his usage rate jump to 22.8 over his last five outings, averaging 16.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples. The Arizona Wildcat has done enough recently to pick him up in standard leagues.
Nov 15 - 11:47 PM

Solomon Hill played a team-high 42 minutes, but hit just 1-of-12 shots (a 3-pointer) for nine points, 10 rebounds and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

He couldn't put it in the hoop tonight, but was still somewhat productive. And the fact he's starting and racking up such heavy minutes for the Pacers means he should be owned in most leagues. He had scored at least 12 points in each of his previous five games coming into this one.
Nov 12 - 10:39 PM

Solomon Hill played a team-high 37 minutes against the Jazz on Monday with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal.

He's scored at least 12 in each of his last five, averaging 15.8 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 triples on 48.4 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from the line in that span. Hill is logging some serious minutes and it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out once C.J. Miles (migraine) comes back. He's a fringe option in 12-team leagues with somewhat low upside.
