Rip Hamilton Injury: Doctors Tell Hamilton To Sit For A Month

The Chicago Bulls saw their eight game winning streak snapped by the Orlando Magic last night, but it's hardly their biggest concern. The Bulls have been straddled with injuries all season long, and this exact moment is no different: Richard Hamilton, Luol Deng and C.J. Watson are each battling something, with various degrees of severity.

Ricard Hamilton was told by doctors today that his shoulder injury should take a month to heal, but Hamilton doesn't sound like he's willing to listen to them. Emphasis comes from the fine people at Blog-a-Bull:

Rip Hamilton said doctors have told him it will take a month for his sprained shoulder to fully heal, which would make it difficult for him to be at 100 percent when the playoffs start.

The veteran said he believes he'll be able to return earlier than that.

"I don't think it's going to take me that long," he said.
