Active Sore left groin Open link
Hill will play on Thursday vs. the Knicks, and the plan will remain to keep him to a 20-minute limit. Coach Frank Vogel said that he expects to keep Hill at 20 minutes on Thursday and Saturday, and then "hopefully expand him after that." He sat out practice on Wednesday after feeling some soreness in his left groin during Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, but it appears to have been a minor setback. Hill missed the first 28 games of the season due to a quad injury, played five games, then had to sit out another 11. He has barely played more than 20 minutes in each of the past three games as Vogel has opted for the conservative approach in the hope that the groin strengthens and doesn't turn into a long-term issue. CJ Watson will continue to see surplus run at the point for as long as Hill remains on a minutes limit.

Questionable Sore left groin Open link
Hill sat out practice on Wednesday after experiencing soreness in his left groin following Tuesday's loss. The Pacers gave him a recovery day with the goal of him being ready for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks, and we're considering him questionable for now given this latest minor setback. "I busted my butt this whole summer to try to come back a different player to help this team try to get over the hump and win games," Hill said. "To not be able to start the season with these guys and go through all these battles with them and then coming back for a couple games and it's (another injury), that (is bad)." Hill missed the first 28 games of the season due to a quad injury, played five games, then had to sit out another 11. He has barely played more than 20 minutes in each of the past three games as coach Frank Vogel takes a conservative approach with his playing time in the hope that the groin strengthens and isn't a long-term issue. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan would handle the point guard duties if Hill has to miss any more time.

Active Strained left groin Open link
Hill will be active for Friday's contest vs. the Heat, as expected. He has missed the past 11 games due to a strained left groin, but had been ramping up his activities lately, including full participation in team practices. Hill suffered the groin injury in just his fifth game following a return from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad. He'll come off the bench and play 15-20 minutes initially, but will take back playing time from CJ Watson and Donald Sloan at the point as he works his way back to full strength.

Questionable Strained left groin Open link
Hill is listed as questionable in advance of Friday's contest vs. the Heat. He has missed the past 11 games as he continues to deal with a strained left groin, and is on the verge of a return as he has been fully participating in team practices recently. Hill appeared in just five games following a return from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad, and his eventual return will take back minutes from CJ Watson and Donald Sloan at the point.
1/21/2015 9:54 AM
Out Strained left groin Open link
Hill has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest vs. the Hawks as he continues to deal with a strained left groin. He participated fully in practice on Tuesday and was expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday if things went well at shootaround, but that doesn't appear to be the case. This will mark the 11th straight game that Hill has missed after appearing in just five games following a return from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will handle the minutes at the point for at least one more game while he remains sidelined.
1/20/2015 5:32 PM
Questionable Strained left groin Open link
Hill participated fully in practice Tuesday, and his status for Wednesday's contest vs. the Hawks won't be determined until the day of. He’s officially day-to-day, and is likely to make his return to the lineup on Wednesday should things go well at shootaround. Hill has missed the past 10 games due to a strained left groin after appearing in just five games following a return from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad. His impending return will take back minutes from CJ Watson and Donald Sloan at the point.
1/19/2015 2:13 PM
Out Strained left groin Open link
Hill remains out for Monday's contest vs. the Rockets. Coach Frank Vogel had said he expected Hill to return to the lineup during the Pacers' current road trip, with Wednesday a likely return date. Hill has missed the past 10 games due to a strained left groin. He appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad.. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to see the run at point guard for the Pacers for at least one more game on Monday.

Out Strained left groin Open link
Coach Frank Vogel said he expects Hill to return to the lineup during the Pacers' current road trip. There's a small chance he plays Monday vs. the Rockets, but more likely he'll return on Wednesday vs. the Hawks. Hill has missed the nine games due to a strained left groin. He appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad.. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to see the run at point guard for the Pacers for at least one more game on Saturday.
1/15/2015 2:11 PM
Injured Strained left groin Open link
Hill practiced with the Pacers on Thursday but has been ruled out in advance of team's upcoming back-to-back on Friday and Saturday. That he was able to practice is promising, but the Pacers aren't going to push him to return from his groin strain before he's 100 percent, given his injury problems so far this season. Hill appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad, and his missing two more games will mean nine straight due to the current groin issue. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to see the run at point guard for the Pacers for at least the next two games.
1/12/2015 1:46 PM
Out Strained left groin Open link
Hill has been ruled out in advance of Tuesday's contest vs. the Wolves as he continues to deal with a strained left groin. "We'll see after that," coach Frank Vogel said on Hill's status. It will mark his seventh straight missed game due to the injury, which was confirmed to be a Grade 1 strain following an MRI on Friday. He appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad, and didn't make any mention of an injury but said he was fatigued after playing a season-high 31 minutes during a Dec. 31 win. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will see the run at point guard for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.
1/10/2015 11:56 AM
Out Strained left groin Open link
Hill has been ruled out of Saturday's contest vs. the Sixers as he continues to deal with a strained left groin. It will mark his sixth straight missed game due to the injury, which was confirmed to be a Grade 1 strain following an MRI on Friday. He'll be re-evaluated before Tuesday, and coach Frank Vogel said, "Hopefully, he's close." Hill appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad, and didn't make any mention of an injury but said he was fatigued after playing a season-high 31 minutes on Wednesday. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will see the run at point guard for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.
1/8/2015 8:19 PM
Out Strained left groin Open link
Hill has been ruled out in advance of Friday's contest vs. the Celtics as he continues to deal with a strained left groin. It will mark his fifth straight missed game due to the injury, which was confirmed to be a Grade 1 strain following an MRI on Friday. It's the lowest grade, but it's also likely that he'll have to miss further time as all involved parties will certainly exercise caution in handling his rehabilitation. Hill appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad, and didn't make any mention of an injury but said he was fatigued after playing a season-high 31 minutes on Wednesday. CJ Watson (foot, questionable) and Donald Sloan will see the run at point guard for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.
1/3/2015 5:41 PM
Injured Left groin strain Open link
Hill has been ruled out for at least the next three games due to his strained left groin. Hill underwent an MRI on Friday, which confirmed a Grade 1 strain. It's the lowest grade, but it's also not unlikely that his absence will extend beyond those three games, as all involved parties will certainly exercise caution in handling his rehabilitation. Hill appeared in just five games after returning from a layoff of almost two months from a torn left quad, and didn't make any mention of an injury but said he was fatigued after playing a season-high 31 minutes on Wednesday. We'll look for further updates on his status towards the end of next week, when the Pacers finish their current road trip. CJ Watson (foot) and Donald Sloan will see the run at point guard for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.
1/2/2015 6:26 PM
Out Left groin strain Open link
Hill has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Bucks due to a left groin strain. He underwent an MRI on Friday, as well, and more details on the severity of his injury are expected after team doctors examine the results on Saturday. Hill didn't make any mention of an injury but said he was fatigued after playing a season-high 31 minutes on Wednesday. This is obviously disheartening news, as Hill just returned five games ago from a layoff of almost two months due to a torn left quad. We'll look for further updates and post more information as it becomes available. Donald Sloan will start at the point on Friday, with CJ Watson (foot) also unavailable.
12/23/2014 10:13 AM
Active Torn left quad Open link
Hill will make his season debut on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans. He will come off the bench initially and play limited minutes as he is eased back in after an extended layoff (64 days to be exact) due to a torn left quad. Coach Frank Vogel said he'd play Hill "enough to get his feet wet." Hill is eventually slated to take over the starting point guard job ahead of CJ Watson when he gets his conditioning back and is able to handle a full compliment of starter's minutes, and his return will almost certainly push Donald Sloan back out of the rotation entirely.
12/22/2014 11:09 AM
Questionable Torn quad Open link
Hill has been officially upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets and is on the verge of returning to the Pacers' active roster. Hill has been taking part in recent team practices, working to get back to game shape after the long layoff, both physically and in terms of shot selection and decision-making. "He still has a long way to go in terms of getting his legs fully under him, but he’s had some bursts where he’s looked pretty good," said coach Frank Vogel on Sunday. Hill will be eased back into the rotation initially, but his eventual return to the starting lineup will push CJ Watson back to the bench and push Donald Sloan back outside of the rotation entirely.
12/21/2014 5:44 PM
Injured Torn quad Open link
Hill has been taking part in recent team practices and is nearing a return to the Pacers' active roster. "He still has a long way to go in terms of getting his legs fully under him, but he’s had some bursts where he’s looked pretty good," said coach Frank Vogel on Sunday. It's possible that he could return as soon as Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans, but it's unlikely that we'll see an update until after Monday's practice, with his status to depend on how quickly he can get closer to game shape, both physically and in terms of shot selection and decision-making. Hill's recovery from a torn quad has been a slow one, but it finally appears that he is on the verge of a return. His eventual return to the starting lineup will push CJ Watson back to the bench and push Donald Sloan back outside of the rotation entirely.
12/19/2014 6:56 PM
Injured Torn quad Open link
Hill participated in practice again on Friday, and though he's all but officially ruled out for the Pacers' upcoming back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday, it's entirely possible that he could make his season debut on Tuesday. He has been steadily ramping up his activity in practice and has gone through a few full-court scrimmages already. Hill's recovery has been a slow one from a torn quad injury, but it finally appears that he is on the verge of a return. We'll continue to provide updates on his progress as needed. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to handle the minutes at the point for the Pacers while Hill remains sidelined.
12/16/2014 12:51 PM
Injured Torn quad Open link
Hill went through most of practice on Tuesday, including a full-court scrimmage, as he continues to make good progress in his recovery from a torn quad. He said that it was a bit rough since he's out of shape, and added that he's still limited in practice so not to aggravate his injury. Coach Frank Vogel said Hill has been participating in practice and "has a long way to go with his conditioning but he's moving really well." Vogel doesn't expect him on the court for the next few games. Hill remains without a definitive return date and is unlikely to play on the upcoming road trip which spans from Dec. 17-21, though Vogel said it is "not out of the realm of possibility." In any case the wait for Hill's season debut appears close to over, and we'll continue to provide updates on his progress as needed. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to handle the minutes at the point for the Pacers while Hill remains sidelined.
12/15/2014 4:43 PM
Injured Torn quad Open link
Coach Frank Vogel said the plan is for Hill to begin practicing "full-out" this week with the intention of building his conditioning up as much as possible. "He’s going to be practicing this week with the intent of trying to get back pretty soon," Vogel said. Hill remains without a definitive return date and is unlikely to play on the upcoming road trip which spans from Dec. 17-21, though Vogel said it is "not out of the realm of possibility." In any case the wait for Hill's season debut appears close to over, and we'll continue to provide updates on his progress as needed. CJ Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to handle the minutes at the point for the Pacers while Hill remains sidelined.
12/11/2014 3:02 PM
Injured Torn quad Open link
Hill participated in his first semi-contact practice of the season on Thursday. It's an encouraging sign, but coach Frank Vogel said he still needs to practice in full before the team can establish a timetable for his return. Vogel repeated the same timetable on Monday that he gave last Thursday, saying that Hill is still "a couple weeks away" from a return. The coaches and training staff want to see Hill take part in at least a few practices before he makes his season debut. “We want him to be at or near 100 percent, and in shape enough to be effective,” Vogel said. It was revealed earlier that Hill had actually suffered a tear in his quad and not a bruised knee, as originally believed, which explains why it's taken him so long to recover and get back on the court. Hill is not expected to return to the roster until late-December. Rodney Stuckey and CJ Watson will continue to handle the minutes at the point for the Pacers for as long as he remains sidelined.

Injured Torn quad Open link
Coach Frank Vogel repeated the same timetable on Monday that he gave last Thursday, saying that Hill is still "a couple weeks away" from a return. While sidelined, Hill has ran on the team’s underwater treadmill, lifted weights, and worked on his ball handling. “He’s picking up a little bit of activity this week but it’s not going to be in practice,” Vogel said. “Hopefully in the non-contact portion of practice maybe towards the end of the week.” The coaches and training staff want to see Hill take part in at least a few practices before he makes his season debut. For now, there is no target date for him to start practicing with the team. “We want him to be at or near 100 percent, and in shape enough to be effective,” Vogel added. It was revealed earlier that Hill had actually suffered a tear in his quad and not a bruised knee, as originally believed, which explains why it's taken him so long to recover and get back on the court. Hill is not expected to return to the roster until late-December. Rodney Stuckey and CJ Watson will continue to handle the minutes at the point for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.

Coach Frank Vogel said on Thursday that Hill is still "a couple weeks away" from a return. It was revealed last week that Hill had actually suffered a tear in his quad and not a bruised knee, as originally believed, which explains why it's taken him so long to recover and get back on the court. Hill is not expected to return to the roster until mid-December at the earliest, and at this point it looks like his absence could extend into late-December. Donald Sloan and CJ Watson will continue to handle the minutes at the point for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.
11/28/2014 5:29 PM
Injured Bruised left knee Open link
Coach Frank Vogel revealed on Friday that Hill actually had a tear in his quad, not a bruised knee, and is not expected to return to the active roster until mid-December. "They didn’t see that on the originally MRI because there was too much blood on the initial picture," said Vogel. "He’s had a tear in his quad. That’s the reason that it’s taken so long." We now have more clarity on the situation, which includes at least a few more weeks on the inactive list, but we'll also need to wait for subsequent updates. Donald Sloan and the newly-activated CJ Watson (foot) will see the minutes at point guard for the Pacers for as long as Hill remains sidelined.
11/21/2014 1:25 PM
Injured Bruised left knee Open link
Hill is still expected to be sidelined until December with a bruised left knee, and he will not be ready to return at the start of the month. His timetable continues to be extended, and at this point it's certainly possible that he misses the first week of December. We have him tentatively slated to return for the Pacers' game on Dec. 8 vs. the Hawks. Hill is nearly four weeks into an original three-week timetable with the knee injury, which he suffered back in the preseason. CJ Watson (foot) is expected to return closer to the end of the month, so Donald Sloan and AJ Price will continue to handle point guard duties for the next week or so.
11/7/2014 12:50 PM
Injured Bruised left knee Open link
Coach Frank Vogel recently spoke on Hill's timetable for a return, and said it'll be "into December before we see him." Hill is currently 11 days into an original three-week timetable for a left knee contusion, an injury he suffered after a knee-to-knee collision with Ricky Rubio during the preseason. It doesn't look like Hill will be coming back before that three-week mark though as Vogel's recent comments push him past five weeks. CJ Watson is still sidelined with a bruised right foot, so Donald Sloan will remain in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future with recently-signed AJ Price providing depth.
11/3/2014 1:17 PM
Injured Bruised left knee Open link
Coach Frank Vogel said Hill is still "a ways away" from returning to the court. He's exactly a week into a three-week timetable due to a left knee contusion, an injury he suffered after a knee-to-knee collision with Ricky Rubio during the preseason. It doesn't look like Hill will be coming back before that three-week mark, and we'll continue to update his status accordingly. CJ Watson is still sidelined with a bruised right foot, so Donald Sloan will remain in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future. Rodney Stuckey (foot), CJ Miles, Solomon Hill, and Chris Copeland will also continue to see additional run on the wing as well.
10/27/2014 1:07 PM
Injured Bruised left knee Open link
The Pacers announced Monday that Hill will miss at least the next three weeks due to his left knee contusion. Hill suffered the injury this past Thursday after a knee-to-knee collision with Ricky Rubio, and coach Frank Vogel had simply been saying that they were taking it "day by day" with his injury. This is a huge blow for the Pacers, particularly with CJ Watson also expected to miss at least the next two weeks due to a bruised right foot. Donald Sloan will start for the Pacers at point guard for the foreseeable future, with Rodney Stuckey the other option to see time at the position. The ripple effect of these injuries also opens up more minutes on the wing for CJ Miles, Solomon Hill, and Chris Copeland.
10/25/2014 12:59 PM
Questionable Bruised left knee Open link
Hill didn't practice on Saturday and said he still won't know "until a couple days" whether or not he'll be able to play in the season opener on Wednesday. Hill said he had an MRI on his knee and is still trying to determine the severity of his knee injury. The Pacers haven't provided many details over the past week for any of their injured players, including David West (ankle), Rodney Stuckey (foot), and CJ Watson (foot), but the team is expected to update statuses and availability for the first game of the season on Monday.
10/23/2014 12:12 PM
Questionable Bruised left knee Open link
Hill has been declared out for Thursday's preseason finale due to his left knee contusion, suffered during a knee-to-knee collision with Ricky Rubio while driving to the basket during Tuesday's preseason game. The Pacers have been sparse with details, with coach Frank Vogel simply saying "we'll take it day to day" after talk of some swelling in his knee on Tuesday night. Donald Sloan will step into minutes during whatever time Hill is required to miss, and we'll continue to look for updates on Hill's status in advance of the regular season opener.
