"We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.
Well...maybe if they are holding him out so soon this time he won't have hip issues for much of the season.

If Watson can be this steady with the starters on a regular basis, we should be able to rest Hill's nagging injuries almost whenever we might need to.
I have the feeling that if it were left up to George, he would have played tonight.

Is Hill out for tomorrow's game against Detroit? Probably unknown at this time, but any updates are appreciated.

#Pacers PG George Hill (sore hip) is OUT tonight. Backup CJ Watson will get his second consecutive start.
With a wink toward the "what should we do about the next two games post", I don't mind holding GHill out if it means he can be back tomorrow night against the Bulls. I wouldn't choose to do it if it were unnecessary, but if he's going to miss one or the other I'd rather it was tonight.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...
Well that's game over before it even started
This Hip injury is a recurring and bothersome injury for GH...I thought dating back to last year.
Are Hip Injuries something that will just linger for the rest of his career?
