Solomon Hill

    SF, Miami Heat

    Solomon Hill played a team-high 41 minutes against the Pacers on Friday, scoring 21 points (5-for-13 FG) to go with seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Hill got as much as he could handle today, though we wouldn't expect him to be in Miami's playoff rotation even with today's injury to Derrick Jones Jr. You can write this one off as a silly season performance, though anyone who picked Hill as a DFS play today is probably in good shape.

    Solomon Hill averaged 5.4 points, 1.1 3s, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.2 blocks on .403 shooting for 289/284 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Hill only played in six out of the 11 games for the Heat since being traded in a package with Jae Crowder and was an afterthought in the rotation. The Heat traded for Crowder and Hill was thrown in so it makes sense to see his playing time dip.

    Jae Crowder had a terrific Heat debut on Sunday night, dropping 18 points (6-of-11 FG), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals, a block and five 3-pointers in 35 minutes off the bench.

    Don't expect the shooting to hold as Crowder is below .300 from deep on the year, but his hustle and toughness will fit right in for the Heat. He was part of the team's closing lineup and it wouldn't be shocking to see him supplant Kelly Olynyk in the starting lineup next game. He's a low-end option in 9-cat leagues but we would try to roll with a higher upside option in 12-team formats. Fellow ex-Grizzly Solomon Hill was a DNP-CD.

    Jae Crowder is a late scratch on Wednesday with trade rumors surrounding him.

    Zach Lowe reported on Monday that the Grizzlies were asking for a first-round pick in a trade for Crowder. Solomon Hill is also a late scratch and Kyle Anderson got the start. Anderson may be starting but he would be a deep-league player only if Crowder is traded. De'Anthony Melton is the player who would benefit the most if minutes opened up in the Grizzlies' rotation and could be a standard-league player in only 25 minutes per game.

    Brandon Clarke (right thumb soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Clarke has provided 12.2 points and 5.8 rebounds in only 21.2 minutes per game this season. Solomon Hill is likely to move up in the rotation should Clarke be unavailable.

    Jae Crowder is officially listed as questionable to face the Kings on Thursday as he nurses a sore left ankle.

    On the season, Crowder is providing consistent, yet underwhelming stats on a youthful roster. He has a defined role for the Grizzlies that appears secure. Jae is producing per-game value right around the top-160 so far this season so there is very little to no upside when it comes to this veteran wing. Kyle Anderson, Solomon Hill and Grayson Allen may see increased time if Crowder doesn't play.

    Jonas Valanciunas (right foot soreness) will start on Monday.

    Valanciunas sat out on Saturday but is ready to go. Solomon Hill is unlikely to be as productive as he was during that one. Valanciunas has scored 14 points per game and has shot 42.1 percent on threes.

    Solomon Hill will draw the start for the Grizzlies on Saturday, replacing Jonas Valanciunas, who is out with a sore right foot.

    Hill should be a cheap DFS bargain tonight, but remains only an ultra-deep league asset in season-long formats. Considering Valanciunas is not expected to miss much time, Hill can be left on the wire in most leagues.

  • Jonas Valanciunas

    Jonas Valanciunas (right foot soreness) is questionable to play against the Kings on Saturday.

    Valanciunas has been hot over his last four games with 16.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 0.8 triples but the Grizzles may choose not to push him as they are currently sitting in third to last place in the Western Conference. Last time Valanciunas was held out on December 2, Jaren Jackson slid over to the center spot with Solomon Hill getting the start. Hill and Bruno Caboclo may seem some extra run if Valanciunas sits out but neither would be worth deploying in fantasy.

    Brandon Clarke (oblique) will be rested on Friday against the Bucks but is expected to play on Saturday vs. the Wizards.

    Both Ja Morant and Clarke will sit out of the Grizzlies' first game of their back-to-back this weekend. Clarke returned from a four game absence on Wednesday and had a nice game in his return. Clarke is expected to play on Saturday vs. the Wizards. Solomon Hill and Bruno Caboclo could see additional minutes off the bench on Friday night but neither player is worth a roster spot in standard leagues.

  • Jae Crowder

    Jae Crowder is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors due to illness.

    Grayson Allen and Solomon Hill would need to step up if Crowder is unable to play. Crowder has averaged 10.9 points and 5.8 rebounds so far this season, but his value could dip when Kyle Anderson is ready to return.

    Jonas Valančiūnas will play against the Bulls on Wednesday after recovering from an illness.

    Jonas missed the past two games due to his recent ailment. Bruno Caboclo and Solomon Hill could see a decrease in minutes while Jaren Jackson Jr. could see his role diminish slightly with the return of Valančiūnas.

    Solomon Hill drew a spot start for an ill Jonas Valanciunas on Monday and turned back the clock with an explosion for 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting in 33 minutes.

    Hill hit four 3-pointers, grabbed six rebounds, dished out two dimes and swiped three steals in one may just be an outlier performance. He's been a non-factor in fantasy prior to this, so don't go tripping over the coffee table in a rush to grab him off the wire.

    Jonas Valanciunas (illness) has been downgraded to out for Monday’s game against the Pacers.

    Valanciunas, Brandon Clarke and Kyle Anderson will all miss this game. Solomon Hill will start at the four with Jaren Jackson Jr. moving to the five. Also, look for some extra minutes for Miles Plumlee and Bruno Caboclo.

    Solomon Hill played 26 minutes and collected 11 points, five rebounds, a steal and two treys on Sunday.

    Hill got some extra work with Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Anderson out and Brandon Clarke leaving the game early. Bruno Caboclo stole the thunder with a big game but Hill's been ahead of him in the rotation this year and might be less of a boom-or-bust option. His ceiling is extremely low, however, so don't take that as a major endorsement for deep-league use.
