Over the course of Grant Hill's 19-year NBA career, he was durable enough to rank among the top 75 players in terms of minutes played. But there were times during his career when injuries made it hard for Hill to stay on the court.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio the current NBA analyst reflects on his experiences playing through pain, shares his thoughts on America's opioid epidemic, and says what he would have done differently, knowing what he knows now.

Hill is a spokesperson for Plan Against Pain, which like APTA's #ChoosePT campaign encourages people to explore safe, nonopioid approaches for the long-term management of most noncancer pain, consistent with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
