Utah Jazz point guard George Hill to miss game against Philadelphia 76ers


NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz have announced that George Hill, who sustained a sprained right thumb in last afternoon’s win over the New York Knicks, will not be playing tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Press has announced that Shelvin Mack will be starting in his place. Hopefully that means more playing time for Dante Exum and Raul Neto as well. Philly is kinda hurt at playmaker already with their stud passer Ben Simmons out. Jerryd Bayles is also out. So it’s going to be a little sloppy, unless you’re a huge Sergio Rodriguez fan.

At lest for Utah they do have Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, and Joe Johnson to handle the ball in the half-court. It still should still be a win.
