Hamilton Questionable; Wallace, Wilcox Doubtful

Surprise, surprise...more Pistons injuries. Starting shooting guard Rip Hamilton is questionable for tonight's home game against the Miami Heat with an injured right ankle. Starting center Ben Wallace (knees) and reserve forward Chris Wilcox (back) are doubtful.

Hamilton's injury is to the same ankle that forced him to miss over 20 games this season, though this recent injury is unrelated to the one earlier in the year. Starting point guard Rodney Stuckey also rolled his ankle but is expected to play tonight.

Don't be surprised to see Wallace shut it down for the season. In fact, now's the best time for the Pistons to play their rookies as many minutes as they can handle during these last nine games of the season, so having the injured veterans sit makes the most sense.
