George Hill will not play in Thursday’s Game 2 due to a sore big toe.
Unbelievable. Hill simply hasn’t been able to avoid injury, derailing a tremendously successful year for the point guard. It shouldn’t hurt his free agent stock much at all, but it will really hurt Utah’s chances of competing with Golden State. Hopefully he can return for Game 3. Expect Shelvin Mack and Dante Exum to split the point guard minutes, with extra ball handling time for Gordon Hayward, Joe Ingles and Joe Johnson.
