CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago guard Richard Hamilton left the Bulls' game against the Indiana Pacers on Monday night with a right shoulder injury. The team said his return was questionable.
Hamilton left the floor about 90 seconds after the game tipped off, walking directly into the tunnel leading to the Chicago locker room while holding the shoulder. He was replaced in the lineup by Ronnie Brewer
Hamilton, in his first season as a Bull, was looked at as a possible final piece in Chicago's quest for an NBA title but has been limited to 16 games because of nagging injuries. He's averaging 12.1 points, fourth-best on the Bulls.
Chicago entered the game with the NBA's best record at 31-8.
