"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.

Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."
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.
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.

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?

This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.
“People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown
@Pacers: "Better but not quite ready." Coach Vogel reports George Hill is out for tonight's game.
