Bulls’ Richard Hamilton out of Rotation
As expected, Richard Hamilton dropped out of the rotation, drawing a did not play-coach’s decision — the first of his career in the playoffs after playing in 127 straight.
“He missed a good chunk of the season down the stretch, and then we tried to get him some games at the end just so he can get his rhythm back,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “A big part of his game is his timing and rhythm of catch-and-shoot. We just have to be patient.”
