Grant Hill Vows to Return This Season Following Knee Surgery

by April 02, 2012

Grant Hill had minor right knee surgery on Friday, and he’s convinced that his season isn’t over just yet. Reports the AZ Republic: “If it seems hard to believe that Grant Hill could return from Friday’s knee surgery before the season ends, consider this detail: his right knee has been less swollen following team physician Thomas Carter’s surgery than it had before the non-optional scope. Hill’s expectation to return for some of Suns’ remaining 14 games was clear Sunday, when he returned to US Airways Center for the first time since having the medial meniscus tear repaired. He was cleared to get off crutches Sunday night. ‘I think I can,” Hill said. ‘Doc is pleased with the surgery and what he saw in there. I’ll be back this year.’ Hill will travel with the Suns in order to rehabilitate the knee with Suns head athletic trainer Aaron Nelson and the staff.”
