Hill scored 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-2 FT), with 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Rockets.
Hill took full advantage of the Rockets not having Dwight Howard inside, and he's turned into a double-double machine to this point in the 2014 season. His fantasy value makes him a strong option for daily fantasy games (depending on cost), and also a player to own in standard leagues as well.

Hill recorded 13 points (6-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 35 minutes during the Lakers' 107-102 loss versus the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
It was Hill's second double-double in the last three games, and over the last five games he is averaging 17.2 points (52.9 FG, 0.0 3Pt, 73.7 FT), 9.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.8 blocks in 33 minutes per game. Hill has established himself as the team's most consistent big man, and his presence is invaluable on the Lakers, who are a porous defensive unit. Expect Hill to continue seeing plenty of playing time so long as he is healthy, and if he can keep things going offensively he's likely to retain must-own status all season regardless of format.

Hill scored 15 points (4-10 FG, 7-9 FT), with 15 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Suns.
Hill hadn't been as active on the boards as he was tonight, but it's a great sign to see him taking over on the glass, specifically on the offensive end (nine offensive rebounds). Hill is turning into one of the most consistent players on the Lakers right now, and is worth having in most lineups moving forward.

Hill scored 23 points (10-14 FG, 3-4 FT) for the second consecutive night, adding five rebounds, four assists, and three blocks in 33 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.
After two sub par shooting nights to open the season, Hill has now combined to go 20-of-29 for 46 points in his last two games. Key to that production is the fact that he has played 33 minutes in both contests and if coach Byron Scott continues to give him big minutes, he'll continue to be a must-own player in fantasy leagues.

Hill was considered probable for the season opener with a neck issue, but took his place in the starting lineup, scoring seven points (2-7 FG, 3-4 FT) with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 23 minutes.
The minutes total is a little low, but with the lop-sided nature of the contest, no one on the Lakers topped 30 minutes. Now with Julius Randle's broken right tibia, the front court depth thins a little and Hill should get back to close to 30 minutes a game and remains a solid option in all leagues.

Hill (neck) is considered probable for Tuesday's opener against the Rockets, Bill Oram of the OC Register reports.
Hill sat out Friday's preseason finale with a minor neck strain, but after a weekend of rest he has a good chance to join the Lakers' for opening night. The Arizona product projects to start at center this season, and he'll share time with Ed Davis.

Hill will not in Friday's preseason finale due to a stinger.
Hill's stinger will hold him out of Friday's preseason game, but they usually don't last long. It shouldn't effect his status for the team's regular season opener unless it turns out to be something more serious. Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will start up front for the Lakers Friday.

Hill scored 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 FT) with 14 rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes Thursday in the blowout loss to the Jazz.
It was Hill's second double-double of the preseason and he's also blocked at least one shot in the last three tilts. Hill will start at center for the Lakers this season and if he can stay healthy, a big if so far in his career, he'll be a valuable fantasy contributor.

Hill scored eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 FT) with seven rebounds, including four on the offensive end, two assists, and one block in 21 minutes Sunday.
Hill will be the Lakers' starting center this season and if he can close in on 30 minutes a night, will be a very valuable fantasy option. Target him toward the end of your drafts and he could produce some nice upside, particularly in points, rebounds, and blocks.
