INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Point guard George Hill will be a game-time decision as the Pacers try to close out the Knicks.
After Indiana's shootaround Saturday morning, coach Frank Vogel did not say whether Hill had passed his concussion tests. Hill must do so before returning to action. Vogel says he is preparing to be without Hill for Game 6 on Saturday night.
Hill missed Game 5 after complaining of headaches. Trainers later diagnosed him with a concussion, holding him out of a game the Pacers lost 85-75. They still lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals 3-2 and play at home Saturday. The Pacers are 5-0 in home playoff games this season, winning each by at least 11 points.
The Pacers started D.J. Augustin in Hill's spot Thursday night.
