That's truly a shame, but at least it looks like there's hope for next year instead of the end of his career.

Maybe that's a tiny hope, but its something....

I don't think this is a big deal. It doesn't have to do with his ankle, and he's just playing it safe with the shin bruise. He should be fine next year.

Rest of season makes it seem longer than 7 damned games.

The Magic are 10th and aren't going anywhere this year. He's just being careful. Just look at his track record with injuries. IMO, he's making a very smart decision.

Still healthier than Bender!

He played more games than Artest this season too! :devil:

...I'm surprised you didn't mention that ;)

It's hard not to pull for a guy like Hill. I think must have been a Pacer in a former life.

Nahhh... he's just a former Piston who happened to get away from Detroit...

Poor Orlando, obcessed with having a superstar guard to put bums on seats.
I hope these injury worries to Grant Hill dont make Orlando more reliant upon Franchise, I hate his game so much. He should have been on Team USA to complete AI/Marbury/Francis trio of PGs who shoot waay to much. Wade is a more complete player than all 3 of them in his 2nd year.

Trade Francis for some magic beans and build around Dwight Howard. Howard doesn't get nearly enough shots.</randommagicrant>

Ah, if Orlando was in the race he'd be playing. He made it thru the whole season with no ankle difficulties, which is good. If Grant Hill can do it, let's hope Ken Griffey Jr. can do the same. I sort of see those two guys as equals as far as injuries go.

And in other news, we've learned - indirectly - that both Eddy Curry and Juwaan Howard have hearts.

Who would have thought they both had one?

I think you've got to consider this season a raving success for Hill. He's not sitting out because he can't play. He's sitting out because there's the potential to do serious damage if he plays in meaningless games. Both for him and management, it's a no-brainer, really. Hill sits and doesn't get injured. The Magic aren't going to go to the playoffs anyway. Losing Hill means they are much worse as a team, and might move up in the lottery. Like I said, no-brainer :)
