Hamilton to Miss Time with Foot Injury
The Bulls announced that Richard Hamilton’s MRI exam on Sunday revealed he tore the plantar fascia in his left foot. The release said the veteran shooting guard will return to play when his symptoms permit.
Either Marco Belinelli or Jimmy Butler will start at shooting guard. Hamilton could be out a week or more. The Bulls have one roster spot open, but if they sign somebody that player wouldn’t crack the rotation ahead of Belinelli or Butler.
Hamilton suffered the injury while making a jump pass late in the third quarter. He retreated to the locker room and, though listed as questionable to return, surprisingly iced Saturday’s victory over the 76ers with three free throws in the waning seconds.
