Pistons plan to rest Hamilton for another game

Posted Nov 2 2009 4:52PM

DETROIT (AP) -- Richard Hamilton will miss a third straight game with a sprained right ankle Tuesday when the Detroit Pistons host the Orlando Magic.

Hamilton was injured in last week's season-opening win at Memphis and X-rays on the ankle were negative.

He scored a team-high 25 points in the victory and the Coatesville, Pa., native has led Detroit in scoring for seven straight seasons.

The Pistons struggled offensively without him in losses to Oklahoma City and Milwaukee.
