Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry isn't sure whether veterans Grant Hill and Channing Frye will play in Tuesday night's game against the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena.Hill has struggled after undergoing knee surgery on March 30. Frye suffered a shoulder injury in the Suns' 118-107 loss to Denver on Saturday night. In addition, Frye's wife gave birth to a baby girl on Monday — one week before the expected due date.Asked if Hill would play, Gentry said, "Don't know yet. With Grant, he'll go through his pre-game routines and we'll see."Frye was not in Salt Lake City for the Suns' shootaround on Tuesday morning but, according to Gentry, he's on the way."With Channing, we're probably not real hopeful there," he said. "But we'll see what happens. He'll get here and kind of test it and see and we'll go from there."— Steve Luhm
