Hamilton returns from 6-game absence
The Pistons had lost five of six without Hamilton, their leading scorer with 18.1 points per game. Coach Michael Curry said Hamilton's minutes would be carefully monitored.
"We'll try not to sit him too long," Curry said. "We'll continue to give him his breaks. He says he's ready to go."
Curry said that both Wallace and Iverson are nearly ready to return. The Pistons host Philadelphia on Sunday and play at Cleveland on Tuesday.
"Hopefully, in the next day or so [Iverson] will be ready to give it a chance. We'll see if he can go tomorrow," Curry said. "Tuesday at the latest for 'Sheed and Allen."
