Richard Hamilton Injury: Guard Unsure If He Will Play Against Washington On Monday

Chicago Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton has been bothered by a groin injury for the majority of the season, and more recently, a bruised thigh. He logged 36 minutes in the team's loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon but admitted afterward that it was a struggle.

"In the first quarter I felt pretty good," he said. "As the game went on, I felt like I was playing on one leg. It was tough. It was hard. But it was kind of like a playoff atmosphere. You try to will yourself through the game. I'm just disappointed we didn't get the win."

Hamilton sat out the Bulls' 107-100 win on Friday night; he has missed 11 games in January.
