George Hill Has Been Cleared to Play in Game 6
The Indiana Pacers have released a statement that says (in part):
After consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, the NBA’s Director of Concussion Management, the Pacers’ team physicians have cleared George [Hill] to play in tonight’s game.
Hill was a late scratch in the late afternoon before Game 5 in New York. The Pacers had the chance to close out the series with a win, but came up short, in part because the team’s reserves made too many mistakes.
While it’s great news that the Pacers will have their point guard, we all remain hopeful that this means there will be no long term effects from this concussion.
