PHILADELPHIA -- Detroit guard Ben Gordon sat out the Pistons' game Wednesday night against Philadelphia because of a sprained left ankle.

Gordon injured the ankle in late November and missed two games before returning to play. Gordon is averaging 18.7 points. He played 12 minutes Sunday against Washington.

The Pistons have already been playing without Richard Hamilton (ankle) and Tayshaun Prince (back).
