Guard George Hill has come out of his throw, but the veteran is not active for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Head coach Mark Daigneault said Hill is going through a rehabilitation process after undergoing thumb surgery in late January and missing nearly two full months of play.
The date of Hill’s return is unclear. Daigneault was asked if Hill was judged on a day-to-day basis and responded vaguely.
“I wouldn’t say it from day to day. Just like everyone else, we’re going to be careful with it and do what we can to make sure it’s in really good shape, ”said Daigneault.
“A recovery process takes place after you have been discharged from the surgery he received. ”
Oklahoma City have made a mistake on the side of caution when it comes to injuries this season, preferring to wait a little longer before putting a player back in the lineup, but his Thursday trading date is also in the -making decision.
Hill is one of the players to report on the market. Guard with playoff experience with next year’s non-warrant season, there have been reports of interested playoff contestants.
His injury also allowed Thunder to get a better view of young guards including Theo Maledon and Ty Jerome.
Hill has missed the last 27 games for Oklahoma City. In the 14 games he appeared in, the guard averaged 11.8 points and 3.1 assists while shooting 50.8% from the field and 38.6% from 3.
Time will tell if he gets a 15th game with the Thunder.
