Hill Out For Tonights Game vs Suns

Apr. 14, 2010: San Antonio Spurs guard George Hill was injured in the first quarter after stepping on a photographer and hurting his ankle during an NBA game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX Dallas defeated San Antonio 96-89.

According to Jeff McDonald at Spurs Nation, looks like the injury that Hill came down with against the Clippers the other night will keep him out of tonights game against the Suns.

His most recent ailment — a neck spasm that came courtesy of  Clippers forward Craig Smith on Monday — will keep him out of tonight’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

After morning shootaround, Hill said was was “feeling better” and had regained motion in his neck. Asked if he thought he might play, Hill entertained the possibility.

“I’m not sure,” Hill said. “We’ll see how I feel tonight.”

Moments later, the Spurs’ medical staff made the determination for him.  He had been ruled out.

Before Monday, the last time Hill played in the Staples Center he left an April 4 victory over the Lakers with a sprained ankle that ultimately cost him four games.

In the meantime, the NBA  has declined to take further action against Smith, who was hit with a flagrant-2 foul and automatically ejected from Monday’s contest. Smith is appealing the flagrant foul.
