Grant Hill’s long-awaited Clippers debut will have to wait at least three more days after Coach Vinny Del Negro elected not to activate him for Wednesday’s game with the Dallas Mavericks.
Hill worked out with the team twice this week and participated in Wednesday’s pregame shootaround, but Del Negro chose to continue proceeding cautiously with the 40-year-old forward, sidelined since October because of a bone bruise in his right knee.
“I just want to give him a couple more days of conditioning and contact. Get his timing down,” Del Negro said. “Obviously, he’s been out awhile.”
The Clippers’ next game is Saturday afternoon against Orlando at Staples Center and Del Negro made it clear Hill’s status remains a work in progress.
