Report: Grant Hill Needs Knee Surgery

Friday March 30th, 2012

Phoenix Suns forward Grant Hill needs surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee and could be out for the rest of the season, according to the Arizona Republic.

Hill is the oldest player in the league at age 39 and said his right knee began bothering him two weeks ago. The injury worsened last week after taking a charge against Cleveland, according to the Republic.

More will be known after the surgery, but Hill is expected to be out until at least mid-April, according to the Republic.
