Cavs’ Hill to miss 2 weeks

The Freeman - - SPORTS - (AP)

CLEVE­LAND — A per­son fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion says Cava­liers start­ing point guard Ge­orge Hill will miss at least two weeks with a shoul­der in­jury.

Hill has a sprained shoul­der, said the per­son who spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause Cleve­land has not yet pro­vided an up­date on the vet­eran guard's con­di­tion. Hill was kept out of Wed­nes­day's loss to Ok­la­homa City be­cause of sore­ness.

ESPN was first to re­port Hill's in­jury.

Hill's set­back is an­other shot to the Cavs, who are an NBA-worst 1-10 and will be with­out All-Star for­ward Kevin Love for an­other five weeks — and pos­si­bly longer.

While Hill is out, rookie Collin Sexton will likely stay in the start­ing lineup. The No. 8 over­all pick made his first start against the Thun­der and fin­ished with a sea­son-high 15 points, two re­bounds and an as­sist in 42 min­utes.

Cleve­land coach Larry Drew has urged his vet­er­ans to be pa­tient with Sexton while he de­vel­ops.
