Hill likely to miss 2 weeks (http://www.azcentral.com/sports/suns/articles/0109sunshill.html)
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.

Ah well.

Grant Hill's recent attempt at locker room humor offended several female journalists and made many of his teammates uncomfortable. Hill was asked if he had found the Fountain of Youth and he answered, "Yup, it's between Tamia's legs and I be swimming' in it every night, ya heard?" Only Amare laughed. Amare, man.
