Per Pistons beat writer Keith Langlois, Charlie Villanueva will give it a go tonight against the Celtics, despite his sprained ankle. However, Richard Hamilton, who was questionable heading into tonight’s game with a sore foot, will be out. He said the injury “could be” related to last year’s injury.
According to Detroit News’ Vincent Goodwill, Rip will also miss tomorrow night’s game in Atlanta, as the Pistons await the results of an MRI that was done Monday, but he could play as early as this upcoming weekend.
Ben Gordon will start in place of Richard Hamilton tonight.
