At some point this morning, Grant Hill will undergo minor knee surgery after an MRI revealed that he has a meniscus tear in his right knee.  At this time, the time table for Hill's return is unknown but estimates show that he may be out until mid April which will be season's end for the Suns if they don't clinch a playoff spot and they currently sit two seeds out of the playoff in the 10th spot.  Grant Hill is the oldest player in the league at 39 years of age.

"He's our glue guy," Suns guard Jared Dudley said after the Suns lost to the Clippers without him Wednesday night. "He calms us defensively. He's the best defensive player. He's the one who guarded Chris Paul at home and slowed him down. Offensively, he is efficient and gets out on the break and that makes other people guard him and open up 3-pointers. He posts up and makes the extra pass."
