Magic's Hill out 7-10 days with abdominal injury

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Grant Hill will be sidelined 7-10 days
because of continued abdominal pain, the Orlando Magic said
Wednesday.

Hill missed the first 19 games of the season after sports hernia
surgery. He sat out five of the last seven games with abdominal
pain. He traveled to Philadelphia on Tuesday to be evaluated.
"He just has a lot of pain in that abdominal area, and we're
just trying to get to the bottom of it," coach Brian Hill said.
He scored 18 points in Sunday's loss at Sacramento, but was in
visible pain after the game.
Hill had his best season with the Magic last year, finally
healed from an ankle injury that kept him off the court most of the
previous four seasons. He averaged 19.7 points, shot a career-best
50 percent and was an All-Star for the sixth time.
He averaged 16.8 points in 11 games this season.
