 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -The Detroit Pistons don't know if Richard Hamilton will be healthy enough to play against the Boston Celtics on Friday.
Detroit's leading scorer strained his right elbow in the final seconds of Boston's 106-102 win on Wednesday night. X-rays were negative, and Hamilton's arm was in a sling as he left the arena.
Coach Flip Saunders says Hamilton is scheduled for an evaluation Thursday, but his status won't be determined until Friday when the Pistons host the Celtics in Game 6. Detroit needs a win to extend the Eastern Conference finals.
