Grant Hill Expected to Miss 2 Weeks January 9, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, NBA, Sports.
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.
