Just two weeks after undergoing knee surgery to repair a
torn right meniscus, Phoenix Suns forward Grant Hill will
return to the court Friday in Houston against the Rockets.
According to Arizona Sports 620’s Kyndra
de St. Aubin, Hill
won’t start for head coach Alvin Gentry,
and instead will assume a bench role for the first time
since December 4, 2009.
In fact, Hill has only come off the bench 22 times in his
17-year career which has spanned 994 NBA games.
The Suns went 5-4 in Hill’s absence and find themselves two
games behind Houston and Denver for the final Western
Conference playoff spot.
