Sixers' Hill to undergo surgery

Sixers rookie forward Herbert Hill suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will travel to Birmingham, Alabama to undergo surgery preformed by Dr. James Andrews Tuesday. Team Physician Dr. Jack McPhilemy will assist in the procedure.

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.
