Pacers G George Hill Out Indefinitely With Chip Fracture

Wednesday February 1st, 2012

Indiana Pacers guard George Hill will be out indefinitely with a chip fracture in his left ankle, according to the Indy Star.

Hill had two points and three assists before hurting himself when landing awkwardly in the third quarter of a 106-99 victory over the New Jersey Nets. Hill’s off-the-bench role will reportedly be filled by Lance Stephenson and A.J. Price.

"He will be missed," head coach Frank Vogel told the Star. "But I believe guys will fill in for him." Through 19 games this season he has averaged 9.3 points and 1.6 assists per game in 24.41 minutes per contest. Last year he averaged 11.6 points and 2.5 assists per game for the San Antonio Spurs.
