According to this ESPN article Grant Hill won't play until February 2004 at the earliest, and likely not at all this season.  This doesn't surprise me, there always seems to be a set of players who are just injury prone (ahem, Vince Carter).  What I never understood is why the Magic went after Hill in the first place.  I remember back in whatever year when he was a free agent, they showed him visiting Orlando and he GOT OFF THE PLANE ON CRUTCHES.  If you are the Orlando Magic, that is the very instant when you say, “No deal!”

It's interesting how some NBA players have very fragile bodies (Carter, Hill), most have the average NBA body, and then you have those men of iron who could get hit by a train in the afternoon and still start in the game that evening (think Stockton, Malone, Rodman).
