Richard Hamilton Injury Update: Hamilton To Sit Out Indefinitely

Chicago Bulls SG Richard Hamilton will sit out indefinitely until he's fully recovered from two leg injuries.

Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed early Wednesday morning rumors that Richard Hamilton will sit out indefinitely as he recovers from a deep thigh bruise in his right leg and ongoing groin problems in his left leg.

Hamilton played 36 minutes vs. the Miami Heat on Sunday, but sat out on Monday night when the Bulls took on the Washington Wizards. Hamilton will join Luol Deng on the bench, meaning that, at least for the time being, the Bulls will be without 40% of their starting line up. Hamilton, who was signed by the Bulls in the offseason, has given Chicago exactly what they have asked for, averaging 14.2 points per game on 42% shooting from the field.
