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

George Hill (ribs) is probable to play on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

He should be out there for minutes in the mid-20s, but Hill is not an impact player in fantasy hoops.
Jan 16 - 1:51 PM

George Hill played 28 minutes Saturday vs. the Raptors, finishing with 11 points (2-of-4 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), two rebounds, two steals, one assist and one three-pointer.

Hill, who has played 28 minutes or more three times since being acquired from the Cavaliers, has now reached double figures in scoring in two straight games. The last time he did this was back in late-October, when the veteran point guard enjoyed a run of four straight double-digit scoring efforts while with the Cavs.
Jan 6 - 12:25 AM

George Hill played 17 minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Heat, scoring ten points (4-of-6 FG) with three rebounds, three assists and one three-pointer.

After failing to score in double figures in any of his first four appearances for the Bucks, Hill has now done so in two of his last three. During this stretch the veteran guard is averaging 9.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game on 66.7% shooting from the field and 57.1% shooting from beyond the arc. Not enough to make him a viable fantasy option, but enough to suggest that Hill is getting more comfortable in his new surroundings.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said that George Hill will be a part of the regular rotation for Milwaukee.

Hill logged just 13 minutes off the bench in his Milwaukee debut, and it's unclear if Budenholzer intends to give him much more time than that. He'll likely siphon away some minutes from Pat Connaughton, but for now, it looks like Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon's minutes are safe.

George Hill played just 13 minutes in his Milwaukee debut vs. the Cavaliers, scoring two points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Blowout or not, it's not a great sign that Hill played just 13 minutes with the Bucks missing Giannis Antetokounmpo (neck). Eric Bledsoe has been outstanding in coach Budenholzer's offense and it's unlikely that Hill will take minutes from Malcolm Brogdon either. He's safe to leave on the waiver wire.

George Hill didn't leave the Bucks' bench on Sunday.

Hill cleared his physical on Saturday and could debut in a 'revenge game' vs. the Cavs on Monday. Hill and coach Mike Budenholzer are familiar with each other from their time in San Antonio, and Bud had high praise for the veteran prior to this game. "[Hill] is another guy that can defend multiple positions," Budenholzer said. "[He] can play pick-and-roll, can attack the paint and score ... He's certainly going to be a big part of our rotation." He's still a dubious fantasy asset while Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon are healthy.

George Hill and Jason Smith are both available to make their Bucks debut on Sunday against the Raptors.

All of the necessary red-tape has been completed and everyone from the Cavs-Bucks trade is available for their new team. Hill will be used off the bench and could be able to carve out some fantasy value in the prolific Bucks offense. Smith will be a bench piece and isn't on the fantasy radar.

Milwaukee is sending Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson, a first-round and future second-round pick to Cleveland for George Hill.

The Cavs are going to clearly tank it up as they try to secure their first round pick, which is top-10 protected from a Kyle Korver trade with the Hawks. Hill is going to be a backup point guard to Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brodgon, and he's a good scheme fit as a catch-and-shoot guy from deep. He obviously loses just about any fantasy value he had left. Collin Sexton was already safe, but this news does help him.

George Hill missed all five of his shots attempts on Wednesday, dishing three assists with two rebounds and one steal in 25 scoreless minutes.

Since returning from injury, the veteran Hill has been starting at SG alongside Collin Sexton. It's yet to produce fantasy results with averages of 4.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 0.7 steals in three games, and if anything his role is likely to dwindle as the Cavs drift toward the draft lottery. A trade would help, but few teams will even consider his $19 million salary.

George Hill scored six points with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes vs. the Nets on Monday.

So much for the "20-minute limit." Hill looks washed these days, but the Cavaliers may keep throwing him out there for big minutes in the hopes that someone will take on his expiring contract closer to the deadline -- he's owed a non-guaranteed $18M in 2019-20, so he'll be a free agent this summer. Collin Sexton is the PG to own in Cleveland, but his upside isn't the greatest.
Mon, Dec 3, 2018 10:10:00 PM

George Hill will remain on a 20-minute limit for Monday's matchup with the Nets.

Hill put up eight points, one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer across 19 minutes in his return to action on Saturday, so we wouldn't expect much from him tonight. He's going to be eased back into things, so you'd have to be in a really deep league for it to be worth grabbing him.
Mon, Dec 3, 2018 06:30:00 PM

George Hill returned to action on Saturday as the starting shooting guard, scoring eight points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

He has been out since Nov. 7 and he played off the ball to keep Collin Sexton in a similar role. Hill has been one of the better off-ball guards wen he's in a groove, so it should be an easy adjustment. Regardless, he still hasn't played well this season and it may take some time to get over his injury, so leave him on the wire unless you have something to cut.

George Hill (shoulder) will return from a multiple week absence against the Raptors on Saturday.

Hill will have 20-minutes limit in his return to action. He will not displace Collin Sexton in the starting lineup, but could start next to him because the Cavs want Sexton to develop off-ball, too. Keep an eye on what happens with Hill before making any moves with him.
Sat, Dec 1, 2018 06:24:00 PM

George Hill (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Toronto.

Hill has been sidelined since November 7th but has made some progress of late. Once Hill returns, Collin Sexton will likely remain the starter, but would see his minutes reduced.
