The Indiana Pacers will go into tonight’s game against Blake Griffin and the high-flying Los Angeles Clippers trying to snap their second five game losing streak of the young season. So far, the Indiana Pacers have had a new starting line-up seemingly each contest, recently having to resort to Rodney Stuckey starting and playing at the point guard position instead of his typical two-guard spot. On the injury front George Hill, the Pacers starting point guard over the last two seasons, is still a few weeks away from returning to the line-up following a knee contusion and quadriceps tear according to Scott Agness of Pacers.com.
#Pacers George Hill (torn quad) is still a few weeks away, coach Frank Vogel says.

Our very own msreya last updated George Hill’s status back in October leading up to their match-up against the Charlotte Hornets, at that time Hill was listed day-to-day. Hill, who played an incremental role in the Pacers back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals appearances, has yet to see the court thus far in the 2014-2015 campaign. Last season for the Indiana Pacers, George Hill appeared in 76 of the teams 82 games while averaging 32 minutes, 10.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
Once Hill makes his return, it will be the first time this season Frank Vogel will have his entire 2014-2015 team at his disposal. In the meantime, still look for guards Rodney Stuckey and CJ Watson to get the majority of the playing time at the point-guard position.
