Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill iwas cleared to play in Saturday night's game against the New York Knicks.
Hill passed concussion tests as part of the NBA's protocol for head injuries before receiving medical clearance, the team announced several hours before game time.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel had not revealed to reporters after Saturday morning's shootaround whether Hill passed the tests. He only said Hill was a game-time decision but that the team was prepared to play without him.
The host Pacers will eliminate the Knicks from the playoffs with a win. Indiana leads the Eastern Conference semifinal best-of-seven series 3-2.
Hill did not play in the Pacers' Game 5 loss in New York on Thursday after complaining about headaches. He was later diagnosed with a concussion. D.J. Augustin played in his place.
Hill is averaging 16 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists in the playoffs.
