Bulls Vs. Wizards: Richard Hamilton And Luol Deng Out; C.J. Watson A Gametime Decision

According to K.C. Johnson, the Chicago Bulls will be without Richard Hamilton and Luol Deng in Washington on Monday night.

Hamilton played in Chicago's loss to Miami on Sunday but shot just 4-16 from the field; after the game, he admitted that it was a struggle to play through his groin and thigh injuries. Hamilton had played in six of the last seven games, but Monday night's contest will be the 12th he's missed in January.
