The Cavs are getting more information about George Hill’s injured back.
At his media availability on Saturday, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said that Hill will undergo an MRI and is considered questionable for Sunday’s Game 4:
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said George Hill (back spasms) is having an MRI. Hill questionable for Game 4— Marla Ridenour (@MRidenourABJ) April 21, 2018
Hill hurt his back in Game 1 when he was blindsided by a Pacers screen and was limited in the second half of Friday’s Game 3 due to the injury. Lue said postgame that Hill aggravated the issue at the start of the second half.
The results of the MRI should indicate Hill’s status not just for Game 4, but beyond if the Cavaliers can advance further in the playoffs. And if he’s unable to go on Sunday, Cleveland will be down its starting point guard and forced to give Jordan Clarkson and/or Jose Calderon extended minutes. Neither has played well so far in the playoffs.
Sunday’s Game 4 tips off at 8:30 p.m. in Indianapolis.
