INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Pacers guard George Hill will have another concussion test before Saturday's home playoff game.

Hill missed Thursday night's game after complaining of headaches. He was diagnosed with a concussion. NBA policy requires players to pass a concussion test before returning to action. Hill did not practice Friday, and coach Frank Vogel said he had not spoken with him. Vogel said Hill was expected to meet with doctors later Friday.

Team spokesman said Hill is still listed as day-to-day and noted that the recovery time depends on the player. Last year, Kobe Bryant was diagnosed with a concussion and did not miss a game.

Without Hill, the Pacers stumbled in an 85-75 loss at New York that allowed the Knicks to pull within 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
