George Hill Could Make is 76ers Debut vs Warriors
The Sixers did make a move at the NBA trade deadline, but have yet to benefit from the deal on the floor.
The team acquired injured point guard George Hill from Oklahoma City, but he has yet to play in a game for Philadelphia due to an injured thumb. Hill hasn't appeared in any game since played since Jan. 24, due to the injury suffered while playing for the Thunder.
He could however, make his Sixers debut tonight, and is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.
Sixers coach Doc Rivers said last week that he was optimistic that Hill would be ready, but wasn't guaranteeing that he would be back. Hill had a live workout on Thursday and seemed to be trending to a return to the court sometime this week.
Even if he is unable to play tonight, it appears the Sixers will have the services of Hill sooner than later, and likely this week.
After tonight's game with Golden State, the Sixers have 11 games remaining. Rivers said he was hopeful to get Hill for about 10 games when the team acquired him back on March 25.
He was having a solid season with the Thunder, scoring 11.8 point per game on 38% 3-point shooting. He provides perimeter shooting, defense and a extra ball-handler and should be a nice compliment to Shake Milton and Ben Simmons.
For tonight''s game the Sixers have listed, Tobias Harris, Seth Curry, Dwight Howard and George Hill as questionable.
For Golden State, Stephen Curry and Kelly Oubre are both listed as questionable to play.
