Rip Hamilton injury update: Bulls guard out indefinitely

US PRESSWIRE

Chicago Bulls guard Rip Hamilton does not have a timetable for return after suffering a foot injury Saturday against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Chicago Bulls guard Rip Hamilton is out indefinitely with a foot injury, though head coach Tom Thibodeau speculates Hamilton could be out "maybe a week, maybe two," according to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago.

Thibodeau made the point clear that Hamilton has no timetable for return at this point, despite his own loose conjecture.

Hamilton injured his foot in the third quarter of the Bulls' win against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday and returned to the game late, converting three-of-four free throw attempts. Hamilton then underwent an MRI Sunday which revealed he had a torn plantar fascia in his left foot.

Hamilton's absence could hurt as already below-average Bulls offense, which ranks 22nd in the NBA with 94.4 points per game. He is averaging 13.9 points, 2.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 15 games for the Chicago Bulls this season.

The Bulls's record sits at 8-7 as they prepare for a stretch of four games in five days beginning Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers.
