George Hill (toe) will miss Game 2 vs. Golden State Warriors

NBA.com Staff

Utah Jazz point guard George Hill played in just 49 games during the regular season after a variety of maladies sidelined him. Those nagging injuries haven’t been a problem for Hill so far in the playoffs as he has appeared in all eight of Utah’s games to date.

However, Hill will not suit up for Game 2 of the Jazz’s series with the Golden State Warriors (10:30 ET, ESPN) due to a toe injury

Hill has averaged 15.6 points, 3.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds in the playoffs.

The Jazz have been hesitant to play backup point guards Shelvin Mack, Dante Exum and Raul Neto major minutes during the playoffs, but one of the three is likely to see a significant increase. Coach Quin Snyder could also play more of a three-wing lineup including a combination of Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles.

The Jazz were 18-15 during the regular season when Hill missed games. Utah trails the Warriors 0-1 in the second-round series.
