Pacers guard George Hill suffered a chip fracture in his ankle Tuesday night against the New Jersey Nets, the team announced following the game. He is listed as out indefinitely.

The injury occurred in the third quarter Tuesday night when George shot a pull-up jumper from inside the key and Nets center Johan Petro undercut him coming down.  

Hill has had an up and down season for the Pacers, and hasn't kept up with the level of production he showed in San Antonio. Still, it's a loss of a veteran to help calm the Pacers' waters with fidgety Darren Collison alternating between brilliant and confusing. The Pacers will have to turn to terribly inconsistent Lance Stephenson with some spot minutes from A.J. Price to fill in the gap, but at least Paul George is having an incredible season. 

We'll keep you updated on Hill's prognosis and estimated recovery time.

Pacers' Hill suffers 'chip fracture' in ankle

Actually, his production is extremely similar to what he did in San Antonio. He's just averaging 4 less minutes. FG% is right at career average as is his 3PT% and FT%. He's producing slightly more steals and turning it over less than his previous seasons. By production, did you mean points per game because his points per minutes are right on average. Just saying.
