Rip’s Ankle to Keep Him Out Longer

Hamilton’s ankle injury — suffered in the Pistons’ season opener — is expected to keep him in street clothes for a couple of more games: “An initial X-ray proved negative. The Pistons took another X-ray as a precaution when he returned to Detroit, and it also was negative. Still, there was significant swelling and bruising, and Hamilton was placed in a walking boot because he could hardly put any pressure on the ankle. Hamilton was able to do some light jogging at Monday’s practice, but he still has some work to do before he is cleared to return to action. A return for Friday’s game at Orlando might be optimistic.”

    That sucks…it’s actually amazing to see how much better they are with him on the floor.

    He might be thier best playmaker (which is kinda scary). They need a true PG in a bad way.

    2nd Wayno. It is a sad day when a pure SG is your best playmaker. I’m rootin’ for you Stucky, but you gotta help me out by steppin up at least a little bit.

    I would estimate that Prince is a better playmaker than Rip.
