Richard Hamilton And C.J. Watson Day-To-Day With Injuries

Richard Hamilton was a late scratch on Sunday after he tweaked his hamstring in the second half of the team's game against the Clippers. C.J. Watson strained an elbow in the fourth quarter of the team's blowout win over Memphis.

But neither player is expected to miss a lot of action, according to Tom Thibodeau, and Hamilton could be back as early as Tuesday:

Thibodeau said that Hamilton would be a game-time decision Tuesday night while he admitted that Watson would probably be out for an undetermined amount of time.

"That would be my guess," he said of Watson. "It's a sprain. (Athletic trainer) Fred (Tedeschi) saw him this morning and the swelling's not too bad. But he's visiting the doctor now. It will be day to day basically. We'll go from there."

The Bulls host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.
