Originally written May 17, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
The Indiana Pacers flew to the Big Apple last night to attempt to close out the New York Knicks, but after they arrived they found they’d have to do so without one of their key players. Less than two hours before tipoff, the Pacers announced point guard George Hill would miss the contest due to a concussion, reporters Zach Schonbrun of The New York Times.Pacers coach Frank Vogel told reporters that Hill suffered his concussion during the first half of Game 4 when he collided with Knicks center Tyson Chandler. It didn’t seem to faze the guard much, as he finished with 26 points in 37 minutes.The news was shocking to Hill’s teammates, as Pacers center Roy Hibbert thought he was simply dealing with a severe headache.“I thought he had a migraine,” Hibbert said. “Next thing I know I’m going out to shoot and they tell me he’s not playing.”During Game 5 – which the Pacers eventually lost to the Knicks – Hill wasn’t on the bench but instead remained in the training room with the lights out. Before rejoining his team, he must pass the NBA’s concussion protocol.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
