George Hill (bruised ribs) came off the bench for nine points (3-of-6 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three rebounds and two assists vs. the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Hill played 15 minutes, which is below the 21.2 he's averaged since joining the Bucks in early December. His shots have finally started to fall, at 48.7% in January, but there's minimal fantasy value here as long as Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon are healthy. Jan 16 - 11:25 PM

Updating a previous item, Eric Bledsoe (left hamstring soreness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

Bledsoe is in danger of missing his first game of the season, as it appears he tweaked his hamstring in Wednesday's win over the Rockets. We should have an update on his status later this evening when coach Mike Budenholzer addresses the media pregame. If Bledsoe is unable to play George Hill would likely start at point guard. Malcolm Brogdon would see an uptick in usage rate. Giannis Antetokounmpo (quad/hip) is listed as doubtful for this game, so the Bucks may be without two of their leading scorers, which would mean Khris Middleton would be asked to carry the offense.

According to Washington reporter Zachary Rosen, Eric Bledsoe is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

Bledsoe has yet to miss a game this season, and logged 28 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Rockets. The tweet from Rosen does not provide any details as to the nature of injury Bledsoe is dealing with. We will update his status as soon as more information is available. If Bledsoe is sidelined, George Hill and Malcolm Brogdon would be the primary beneficiaries.
Jan 11 - 12:40 PM

Malcolm Brogdon (rest) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Miami.

Brogdon missed two games last week due to a hamstring injury but returned and played well on Wednesday and Friday. However, the Bucks will hold him out on the second night of a back-to-back this evening. There is no one primary beneficiary with Brogdon sidelined. George Hill, Pat Connaughton and Sterling Brown will all likely divvy up extra minutes off the Bucks bench.

Updating a previous report, Malcolm Brogdon (left hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pistons.

He was being listed as probable and available to play this morning, but the Bucks decided to be "aggressively cautious" and give him one more game off. George Hill could pick up a few extra minutes with Brogdon unavailable, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Maybe Brogdon will be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

The Cavs are reportedly willing to take on some long-term salary in order to move some of the veterans on their roster.

Cleveland is shopping J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver and George Hill, and it looks like they'd be willing to take on a bad contract in order to move one of those guys if a draft pick is included. Korver is one of the more attractive trade chips out of this group, as he's only owed $7.7 million next season, but moving Smith or Hill and their bloated contracts could prove to be more difficult.

Collin Sexton scored 23 points (10-of-18 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 32 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

Sexton was in attack-mode in this one, tying his season-high in shot attempts (18) and coming up one shy of his season-high in points (24). George Hill (shoulder) might be close to a return, but it's hard to see Sexton relinquishing his starting spot on this rebuilding Cavs team. He's now averaging 18.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.0 assists over his last five games.

Collin Sexton made his first NBA start on Wednesday, posting 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, two rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist and one block in 42 minutes.

George Hill was a late scratch with "right shoulder soreness" and whether or not it was a valid injury, the writing is on the wall. The Cavaliers have a 1-9 record, they're already on their second head coach of the season, and their max-salary player (Kevin Love) is out for more than a month. Youth will be served and that means plenty of Sexton, who is worth grabbing as a long-term prospect in points leagues -- just don't expect supporting stats in roto.

Cedi Osman (ankle) is being listed in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season opener against the Raptors.

According to the lineup notes, Osman will be joined by George Hill, Rodney Hood, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson in the starting unit. There's a massive hole to fill in Cleveland with LeBron James no longer in town, and Osman could look to take on some of the offensive burden. Feel free to get him active.
Wed, Oct 17, 2018 07:07:00 PM

Coach Ty Lue said Kevin Love, George Hill, Kyle Korver, and maybe Tristan Thompson will be rested and will not play Saturday against Boston.

This is simply Cleveland managing the reps of their veterans. Lue did state that they will play the Cavs' final two preseason games next week. Larry Nance, Cedi Osman, Sam Dekker and Collin Sexton will all see an uptick in minutes on Saturday.
Fri, Oct 5, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Tristan Thompson will enter the starting lineup for Game 7 on Sunday.

Even though George Hill (back) is returning, he'll come off the bench and may have restrictions after sitting out three straight games. Jose Calderon will move to the bench with the Cavaliers going big, meaning LeBron James will run the point.
Sun, Apr 29, 2018 01:07:00 PM

Jose Calderon made another fill-in start on Wednesday with six points, two boards, two steals and a pair of 3-pointers in 20 minutes.

George Hill (back spasms) is day-to-day and his absence has thrust Calderon into the starting role, albeit with limited usage alongside usage-monster LeBron James. Jordan Clarkson could benefit with Hill out of commission but he only had four points, one board and one assist in 15 minutes tonight, and it's hard to trust any Cavalier beyond LeBron for DFS value.
Wed, Apr 25, 2018 10:29:00 PM

Jose Calderon made a fill-in start for George Hill (back spasms) during Game 3, posting five points, two rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes.

The Cavs siphon most of the ball-handling duties through LeBron James anyway, of course, with LBJ recording 32 of the Cavs' 62 total assists in their first-round series. Throw in Calderon's typical minute-limit (27+ minutes just three times all season) and he's only a DFS punt while Hill is sidelined.
Sun, Apr 22, 2018 11:41:00 PM

Larry Nance, LeBron James and Jeff Green all played just 11 minutes during Wednesday's season finale, while George Hill played nine minutes.

"We're still playing to win but we want to be smart because since I've been here, we always preach health over positioning," coach Ty Lue said before the game. Nance finished with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he should return to a bench role when the Cavs open the postseason vs. the Pacers.
Wed, Apr 11, 2018 11:09:00 PM

Cedi Osman will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Knicks.

Joining him in the starting five will be George Hill, LeBron James, Jeff Green and Larry Nance Jr. This game could turn into a blowout real quick, and head coach Tyronn Lue already suggested he'll be monitoring LBJ's minutes, so Osman could see some heavy run tonight.
Wed, Apr 11, 2018 07:57:00 PM

Jose Calderon started Sunday's game in place of George Hill (ankle), scoring eight points with two 3-pointers, two assists and one rebound.

Calderon logged 22 minutes and that's typical for his role even when Cleveland is short-handed. He's a reliable complementary player who doesn't demand usage, and the move also allowed Jordan Clarkson and J.R. Smith to stay together as sparkplugs for the second unit. There's no reason to touch Calderon even if Hill misses more time.
Sun, Apr 1, 2018 09:20:00 PM

Jose Calderon will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, with George Hill (ankle) unavailable.

Calderon will be joined by Rodney Hood, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Larry Nance, but Calderon getting the start doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Through 30 games as a starter this year, Calderon owns averages of 5.9 points, 2.7 assists and 1.1 triples per contest.
Sun, Apr 1, 2018 04:43:00 PM

Rodney Hood will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Hood will be replacing Jose Calderon in the starting five, and he'll be joined by George Hill, Jeff Green, LeBron James and Tristan Thompson. Hood's been hot over the past two, and his odds of keeping that going improve as a starter, so he could be worth a look for anyone seeking some points and triples.
Wed, Mar 28, 2018 05:36:00 PM

Jose Calderon started for Kyle Korver (personal) on Wednesday, posting 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting with four 3-pointers, four assists and one rebound in 27 minutes.

Korver is away from the Cavs indefinitely following the death of his brother, and Cleveland opted to shift George Hill to SG while keeping their second-unit rotation intact. We've already seen what Calderon looks like as a starter at age 36, and it's not inspiring -- in 26 previous starts, he averaged 5.6 points, 1.1 threes, 2.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 0.7 steals. Tonight's solid line aside, that's all owners can expect if Korver misses more time.
Wed, Mar 21, 2018 09:52:00 PM

Jose Calderon and Ante Zizic will return to the bench for Monday's game against Milwaukee.

Kyle Korver (personal) and Kevin Love (hand) are back, so the Cavs will roll out a starting five featuring George Hill, Korver, Jeff Green, LeBron James and Love. Calderon and Zizic won't be worth using anywhere with the Cavs getting healthy again.
Mon, Mar 19, 2018 06:51:00 PM

George Hill, Kyle Korver, Rodney Hood (back), LeBron James and Jeff Green will start vs. the Trail Blazers on Thursday.

Larry Nance is out with a hamstring issue, so Jeff Green will shift over to the five with Hood getting the start at the three-spot. Hood will be on a minutes limit, so he's not the most attractive target in DFS. Ante Zizic will come off the bench, but he might see decent minutes as the only healthy big on the roster.
