Rip Hamilton’s Season Could Be Over Due to Back Injury

According to Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, Richard Hamilton may not play again this season because of his back injury. Per the Chicago Tribune: “‘There’s an unknown,’ Thibodeau said. ‘It’s a back, so those things are tricky. We’ll just have to wait and see.’ Hamilton missed his ninth straight game. The veteran guard was a surprise late scratch before the Feb. 28 home game against the 76ers after scoring six points in 18 minutes on Feb. 26 against the Cavaliers. Hamilton has missed 59 of 132 games since signing his two-year, $10 million deal, which carries a $1 million buyout for next season’s team option.”
