Knicks-Pacers, game 6

The Indiana Pacers don’t know whether George Hill will play tonight ( 5, ESPN) in Game 6 against the New York Knicks. It’s not something they can worry about. Instead, coach Frank Vogel is making adjustments just in case Hill can’t pass his concussion tests before tip-off, and the Knicks are preparing as if Indiana will have its starting point guard back in the lineup. NBA rules require players to feel symptom-free at rest and when they are under exertion before a team doctor can determine that the player is ready to return from a head injury. With Hill, the Pacers took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Without him, Indiana couldn’t win Game 5. – AP
