Sixers Hill out 4-6 weeks

Philadelphia 76ers rookie forward Herbert Hill underwent successful surgery on a torn meniscus in his left knee Tuesday and will miss the next 4-6 weeks.

Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure in Birmingham, Alabama. Sixers team physician Dr. Jack McPhilemy assisted.

A product of Providence College, Hill was originally drafted by the Utah Jazz with the 55th overall selection in the 2007 NBA Draft, before being dealt to the Sixers in a draft night trade for Kyrylo Fesenko and future draft considerations.

Hill appeared in five preseason games, averaging 2.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks.
