A sore groin could force Hamilton to miss his third straight game when the visiting Chicago Bulls look for a fifth consecutive victory overall and 12th straight over the Pistons on Wednesday night.
Hamilton averaged 18.4 points and helped the Pistons win an NBA title during his nine seasons in Detroit. Despite helping Detroit remain a perennial Eastern Conference power during most of his tenure there, age, injuries and a hefty contract led to the club buying out Hamilton last month.
