George Hill has been hurting for more than a month.
Tormented by a sore left hip, he plays through the pain. Surgery won’t ease or fix it, but rest will.
Of course, he has no plans for that.
The former Broad Ripple High School and IUPUI star is enjoying the best season of his five-year NBA career. His contributions have been vital to the Indiana Pacers’ success. They are locked in a fierce semifinal playoff series against the New York Knicks.
Game 3 is tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
