INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Pacers guard George Hill has been cleared to play Saturday night against the New York Knicks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.

The Pacers said Hill remained symptom-free after each step, including workouts and the shootaround Saturday. He was injured in the first quarter of Game 4.

The Pacers lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
