Grant Hill Expected to Miss 2 Weeks January 9, 2008

Phoenix Suns Forward Grant Hill is expected to miss 2 weeks, due to an emergency appendectomy:

Suns forward Grant Hill’s best run of good health in years took a surprise interruption today when it was learned he would need to undergo an appendectomy this evening.

Suns General Manager Steve Kerr said Hill likely is expected to miss about two weeks of play.

Hill, mired by acute injuries in the past eight years of his career, had started all of Phoenix’s 34 regular season games, his longest run of consecutive games played since he was in Detroit in the 1999-2000 season. Hill is averaging 15.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists and is shooting 50.7 percent from the field.

Hill came to US Airways Center this morning feeling ill and was sent to the hospital by Phoenix head athletic trainer Aaron Nelson because he was not showing any of the usual flulike symptoms. At the hospital, it was determined Hill would undergo an appendectomy.

oh this is bad!! grant hill is one of my favorite players in my fantasy league!!
but im sure he’ll be okay.. just don’t rush coming back.. if he needs time to rest and recover then he must not go back to the court.. good luck!

My goodness. I was really hoping that he would be able to go injury free for one year. Fortunately, this isn’t too bad, but still…He’s one of those players who you’ll always have to ask “What if?”

Tell me about it. I was watching some old highlights of him when he was with Detroit. He would have been the man for a couple years. Too bad he got hurt when he was just about to reach his prime.

after enduring years of injuries, he still plays pretty decent game sin phoenix this season. he will never be the player like he was on detroit, but you can never deny it that he still has some fuel left in his tank.

I am sure Hill will take that anyday over a ankle injury.
