Barack Obama will be visiting a hospital soon, but it won't be to see American troops. It'll will be to get himself checked out for a minor basketball injury.

"His hip has been sore from basketball for a few weeks, so he's going to see an orthopedic doctor," Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

This comes after Obama nixed a trip during his week-long trip abroad to meet with hospitalized U.S. soldiers.
