Grant Hill injured. AGAIN!!!

Co-Rookie of the Year (along with Jason Kidd) in 94'- 95'.

Perennial NBA All-Star even after the plethora of injuries he suffered.

Truly, Grant Hill is special. But can he ever stay healthy since breaking his foot in the 2000?

I was hoping it would be this year.

Fate had other plans.

The Associated Press reported:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Suns forward Grant Hill was scheduled to undergo an appendectomy Wednesday evening and is expected to miss at least two weeks.(Reports now say Hill will be out for 2-3 weeks).

Hill felt ill after arriving at the US Airways Center for practice Wednesday morning, Suns spokeswoman Julie Fie said. At first, everyone assumed he had the same flu that teammate Raja Bell recently had. But after being taken to see a physician, it was determined to be more serious.

He was hospitalized and scheduled for surgery.

Hill signed a two-year deal with the Suns in July and hoped to overcome seven injury-plagued years in Orlando, where he played in about a third of the Magic's regular-season games.

He's been injury free since coming to Phoenix, playing in all 34 regular season games and averaging 15.9 points.

I do wish Grant Hill a speedy recovery from his emergency appendectomy. He will be out for two weeks...but likening the situation to Al Jefferson (then of the Boston Celtics, who went through a similar procedure a couple of years ago), who lost a lot of weight before his return to his team's lineup is any indication.

Here is hoping for good health.
