Pistons Injury Update

The Pistons' Rip Hamilton are Tayshaun Prince are still being listed as injured indefinitely, and now it's looking like fellow swingman Ben Gordon could miss additional time with an injured left ankle.

Detroit plays tomorrow in Philadelphia against the 76ers before returning home to host the Denver Nuggets on Thursday. Hamilton and Prince have been ruled out for both games, while Gordon is questionable.

For the time being, the team will likely continue to bring power forward Charlie Villanueva off the bench while he adjusts to having to play with a broken nose. Rookie forward Jonas Jerebko has been starting alongside Jason Maxiell and Ben Wallace in the frontcourt, and it's possible Jerebko will stay in the starting lineup once Prince returns, sliding over to the four-spot.
