George Hill part of Bucks’ playoff push after neck, abdominal injuries

Bucks guard George Hill returned for Game 3 against the Celtics after having not played in 29 days,

milwaukee bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer keeps a poker face when it comes to player injuries and the potential timelines for returns from those injuries. He’ll offer up whatever may be relevant, or new, but little else.

The mandatory league injury report or team statements on medical updates usually suffice.

Except this year, there was one player Budenholzer continually expressed optimism about when it came to returning to action – George Hill.

Perhaps it was the fluid nature of Hill’s injuries that allowed for optimism, or perhaps it was the fact that there is such an affinity for the veteran point guard and what he could bring to the team and its defense.

First, Hill missed 17 games from Jan. 30 through March 12 with what was called neck soreness but he clarified as an injury between his T6 and T7 vertebrae, an injury he said he will have to have addressed in the offseason.
