George Hill News

George Hill    G  Kings

 

 

George Hill scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with five assists, four 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and two turnovers in 33 minutes. Hill did a nice job of picking his spots and orchestrating the offense, and he even drained a halfcourt shot to end the first half of action. In general, Hill has been much better over few weeks with averages of 13.8 points, 3.4 dimes, 1.2 steals, 2.6 triples and 1.8 turnovers per game on 53.2% shooting, which has him flirting with top-70 value in 9-cat leagues. He's worth a look for anyone seeking some low-end PG stats.

Hill finished with 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and two rebounds in 30 minutes during Thursday's 119-96 loss to the Timberwolves. Hill played well for the second straight game, leading the team once again with 16 points. He has played more than 28 minutes in three of his last four games, scoring in double figures in all three of those games. His role has been inconsistent so far this season, along with most of the Kings roster. D'Aaron Fox has not developed as quickly as the team would have hoped, and this may lead to some more run for the veteran. There is a decent chance he is floating around on quite a few waiver wires, and he is worth a look if you have room at the end of your bench.

George Hill hit 5-of-9 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes of Thursday's 119-96 loss to the Timberwolves. Hill had 18 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers on Tuesday, meaning he's heating up, while De'Aaron Fox went down with a quad injury tonight. That should clear more minutes for Hill if Fox is going to miss games, making Hill a tasty pickup if he was dropped in your league.

Kings head coach Dave Joerger said he wants George Hill to be more assertive in the offense. "We want him to keep looking for his shot, we need him to be a playmaker," said Joerger. "Obviously, he’s a mentor, he’s been great for our guys. When he’s aggressive and looking for his shot I think that’s good for us. Too many times we all think he’s just a spot shooter. He’s a pretty good player in pick-and-roll and can make plays." Hill had a nice 18-point game with a full stat line on Tuesday, so he might be worth scooping up if he was recently cut in your league.

Hill recorded 18 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 99-92 win over the Suns. Hill's averaging 25.5 minutes per game this season, which is the lowest total of the 31-year -old veteran's career. It was expected that Hill's usage would mimic his previous totals in Utah and Indiana, but that hasn't been the case. Granted, the Kings aren't an offensive powerhouse, but Hill and Zach Randolph find themselves surrounded by several youngsters that are also vying for playing time. Hill's stat lines thus far have been modest aside from some outliers, and can only be considered as a third or fourth guard in seasonal leagues.

George Hill returned from his one-game personal leave and blew up for 18 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes. Hill's been up and down like a yo-yo this season and was probably dropped by a lot of owners after his Sunday hiatus, and while tonight's line wasn't a season high, it was pretty close, and one of his best games of the season. We have no idea if Hill will build off this game and start producing like this regularly, but he's worth picking up to find out. Just keep in mind that De'Aaron Fox is the future and it wouldn't make much sense for the Kings to keep focusing on Hill as the season continues to slip away.

Hill will not play in Sunday's game against the Raptors due to personal reasons, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports. Hill will miss his third game of the season as he attends to a personal issue. Reserve guard Garrett Temple should see some extended run in his absence. We'll have to wait and see if Hill will be back with the team prior to Tuesday's game against the Suns.

George Hill will miss Sunday's game vs. the Raptors for personal reasons. Hill has been trending down for weeks and this will give his fantasy owners another reason to move on. He's eligible to be traded next week, so maybe a change of scenery could get him going. With Hill out, both Frank Mason and De'Aaron Fox will play as many minutes as they can handle.

George Hill scored nine points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Pelicans. You would think De'Aaron Fox is the guy eating into his minutes, but it's been Frank Mason III. Hill does have a fantasy friendly game overall, but the playing time is so up and down. He's hardly a must-own player and he could get even more annoying as the season goes on.
