Hill scored 23 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with five rebounds, four assists and two steals during 39 minutes in Monday's 111-106 loss to the Cavaliers. After missing three games due to personal reasons, Hill clearly needed a few games to get his offense going again. Well the offense came back Monday as Hill matched his highest point total of the season; he scored 23 points Nov. 9 against the Magic. Hill has particularly found his stroke from distance, shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc in the last five games (12-25).
Hill had 18 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in a win against the Hawks on Thursday. Hill typically isn't the go-to guy for the Pacers, but with Paul George in foul trouble on Thursday, he found himself with more scoring opportunities than usual. The eight rebounds were also a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners, but it's not something that should be expected on a nightly basis. All in all, the near double-double for Hill was nice, but it's not indicative of his usual fantasy output and he is a more of a role-player for the Pacers.
Hill will get the start at point guard in Tuesday's game against the Clippers, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports. Hill missed three games following the birth of his son last week, and came off the bench in Saturday's game against the Kings upon returning to the team. He still functioned as the de facto starter for that contest by playing 33 minutes, and now he'll take back a permanent spot on the top unit alongside Monta Ellis. Glenn Robinson will head to the bench to make room for Hill.
Hill (personal) scored eight points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), a rebound, four assists and two steals over 33 minutes in Saturday's 108-97 loss to the Kings. Hill returned from a three-game absence due to personal reasons to tally a robust 33 minutes despite coming off the bench. The reserve role was almost certainly just a one-game designation, and Hill figures to return to his usual starting spot as soon as the Pacers' next contest versus the Clippers on Tuesday.
Hill (personal) will not start Saturday against the Kings. Hill missed the Pacers' last three games for personal reasons and was expected back Saturday, but he will not start, and his status is uncertain.
