Suns forward Grant Hill will play in tonight's Game 3, likely coming off the bench with Leandro Barbosa starting in his spot.
The surprising turn came at this morning's Suns shootaround, when Hill tested the groin and abdominal strain with some cutting and jumping drills. Simply, he said he was "feeling better" but respectfully declined to elaborate much more on the ongoing saga of his health.
"Yesterday was a down day; today was an up day," Hill said. "I'll be coming off the bench and I anticipate being a lot more productive than I was in these first two games."
..."He was running a lot better," Suns head athletic trainer Aaron Nelson said of Hill after this morning's shootaround at US Airways Center. "He had a lot better pop. He said he felt better yesterday and he came in feeling good."
Looks like he's going to tough it out, we could really use a boost from him - especially on defence. His midrange, slashing and playmaking could be invaluable too.
