Jordan Hill got a whopping 37 minutes in his start for Ian Mahinmi (back) on Thursday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting with six rebounds and three blocks in the Pacers’ 101-94 loss to the Raptors.
Hill saw so much time because of the foul trouble plaguing Myles Turner (nine points, 10 boards, 18 minutes) and Lavoy Allen in the first half. This isn’t a big enough outing to warrant any standalone consideration, but if Mahinmi stays out then Hill will be worth a look again. Turner has really bottomed out but he’s staring at a pair of four-game weeks, so owners should probably cut him some slack. If he can get hot again he can be an impact fantasy player. Paul George hit just 7-of-24 shots for 18 points and an otherwise full line in the loss.
