Jazz's George Hill: Requires stitches following Monday's game

Hill needed three stitches on his mouth following Monday's 34-minute outing against the Timberwolves, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports.

Hill played a normal compliment of minutes Monday and the laceration on his mouth isn't expected to pose any issues for his ability to play in Tuesday's game against the Rockets. In fact, the veteran fell just one point shy of tying his season high in points while playing through the injury Monday, totaling 24 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding eight rebounds and four assists.
