(KUTV) The Utah Jazz have upgraded the condition of starting point guard George Hill to questionable for Saturday's playoff game after he missed Game 2 of the team's second-round playoff series. Alec Burks is out with a left knee injury.

Hill, a 6'3'' an eight-year NBA veteran in his first year with the Jazz, helped the team to a 50-win season, its first playoff birth since 2012 and a first-round victory over the Las Angeles Clippers. His left big toe injury kept him out of the second game in the series against the Golden State Warriors. The Jazz play Game 3 Saturday, the team's first game at home in the Western Conference semifinals.

Hill averaged 15.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game this season, all better than his career numbers. The Jazz acquired Hill in a three-team trade.

Utah will play Saturday and again Monday.
