Hill out six weeks

I'm only including this here because I touched upon this a few days ago:

Orlando Magic forward Grant Hill will have surgery to repair a painful lower abdominal injury and miss 3 to 6 weeks of basketball and the start of the NBA regular season.

Hill injured himself at the start of the exhibition season earlier this month and hasn't played since. Hill said the pain is located around the pubis bone below the lower abdomen. Hill has traveled the country trying to find a remedy, but he found out today that surgery is the only solution -- a week before the regular season.

Surgery is nothing new to Hill, who's had five surgeries on his left ankle. Hill's spot in the lineup will be filled by Hedo Turkoglu.

Tough break for a good guy.
