AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit Pistons forward Tayshaun Prince will miss Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic with a back injury, ending his consecutive-games streak at 496.
Prince will be sidelined for at least three games before his status is re-evaluated this weekend. His games-played streak was second among active players, trailing Andre Miller, and his games-started streak of 439 was the longest active run.
Prince last missed a game on April 13, 2003 -- during his rookie season -- against Memphis.
Detroit's Richard Hamilton (ankle) missed his third straight game.
