INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — Cavaliers point guard George Hill is questionable for Wednesday’s (Thursday, PHL time) crucial Game 5 against Indiana because of back spasms.

Hill has been dealing with back problems since the series opener, when he was flattened by an illegal screen by Pacers forward Trevor Booker.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue says Hill was limited to shooting drills during Tuesday’s (Wednesday, PHL time) practice and will start if he can play.

Jose Calderon started Game 4 at Indianapolis and scored five points in 19 minutes as the Cavaliers evened the series at 2-2. Cleveland is 24-9 when Calderon starts.

Hill is averaging 8.7 points and 1.7 assists in his first postseason with Cleveland, which acquired him at the trade deadline in February. He started 24 games during the season.
