Grant Hill Knee Surgery Quick And Over, Should Return This Season

The Phoenix Suns released a statement saying that Grant Hill underwent a procedure on his right knee that lasted just 30 minutes. Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter repaired a medial meniscus tear in Hill's knee that was found after an MRI on Thursday.

The Suns said, "If rehab goes as expected, Hill will return before the end of the regular season."

Hill has appeared in 46 games this season for the Suns, averaging 10.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Since the break, Hill has averaged 12.9 points and is shooting 52.1 percent from the field overall. The Suns' best individual defender, Hill has led a Phoenix defense that is allowing just 97.6 points this season, its fewest since 2002-03, and 8.2 points fewer than a season ago.
