INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Pacers guard George Hill has been cleared to play Saturday night against the New York Knicks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Hill missed Game 5 on Thursday night in New York because of a concussion.
The Pacers released a statement about 1 1/2 hours before the scheduled tipoff saying Hill passed the NBA's return protocol as part of the league's concussion policy.
The Pacers said Hill remained symptom-free after each step, including workouts and the shootaround Saturday. He was injured in the first quarter of Game 4.
The Pacers lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
