Pacers point guard George Hill torched the Knicks for 26 points game 4 giving Indiana a commanding 3-1 lead. However a head injury he sustained during the first quarter of that game may be what keeps him out for the rest of the series.

Hill sat out game 5 in New York where the Knicks capitalized on the injury and forced a game 5 back in Indy. The Pacers were clearly not the same without him as spacing was off and they were never able to establish any kind of flow to the game.

His importance to the Pacers became even more evident when reserve point guard DJ Augustine passed up an easy dish for a jam to try to take it himself. He was swatted by none other than JR Smith who was trailing the play.

And now some bad news comes to Indiana fans everywhere as it has been revealed that George Hill may be out for the rest of the series due to the concussion he suffered from in game 4. And it’s not because he’s pulling a Derrick Rose and choosing to sit, but the NBA’s concussion policy is as followed:

If a player is diagnosed with a concussion, he will have to complete a series of steps to confirm that he’s healthy enough for competition.

Once he is free of symptoms, the player must make it through increasing stages of exertion – from a stationary bike, to jogging, to agility work, to non-contact team drills – while ensuring the symptoms don’t return after each one.

Then the neurologist hired to lead the NBA’s concussion program needs to be consulted before the player is cleared. The process will likely take at least several days, if not weeks.

This gives the Knicks a great shot at resurrecting their hopes and fighting back to force a game 7 at Madison Square Garden. Hill is listed as day-to-day but it’s ultimately up to the doctors to approve his minutes.
