Grant Hill injury: MRI reveals bone bruise on right knee, out at least 2 weeks

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Clippers will be without veteran forward Grant Hill to start the season.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Grant Hill will be out of action for at least two weeks after an MRI revealed a bone bruise on his right knee. Hill reported he will miss time after the team's preseason victory over the Golden State Warriors on Monday, according to ocregister.com.

Hill has appeared in just two preseason games for the Clippers. The 17th-year veteran is in his first season with Los Angeles after spending the previous five with the Phoenix Suns. Hill signed a two-year contract with LA in July.

After battling injuries for much of his career, Hill played three relatively injury-free seasons in a row from 2008-2011 with the Suns. He missed time last season, playing in just 49 of the lockout-shortened 66-game season. Hill has not averaged less than 10 points per game in any year of his career and will be looked upon to provide veteran leadership and consistency for a young and talented Clippers squad.
