AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons don't know if
Richard Hamilton will be healthy enough to play against the Boston
Celtics on Friday.
Detroit's leading scorer strained his right elbow in the final
seconds of Boston's 106-102 win on Wednesday night. X-rays were
negative, and Hamilton's arm was in a sling as he left the arena.
Coach Flip Saunders says Hamilton is scheduled for an evaluation
Thursday, but his status won't be determined until Friday when the
Pistons host the Celtics in Game 6. Detroit needs a win to extend
the Eastern Conference finals.
