Hamilton, Prince remain out

Richard Hamilton (ankle) and Tayshaun Prince (back) did some light work at practice on Tuesday, but will still be listed as out for Wednesday’s game at Philadelphia and Thursday at home against Denver.

“We are seeing some things that are progressing in the right direction,” Pistons head coach John Kuester said.

Ben Gordon (ankle) was very limited at practice on Tuesday and was held out of any contact drills. But the team is optimistic he will play on Wednesday.

“We are really monitoring him right now,” Kuester said. “We just want to make sure that he feels comfortable because he’ll try to play whether he’s 60 percent, 70 percent or 80 percent.”

The Pistons have balltled injuries all season and have had their full lineup for just one game, the season opener at Memphis. Kuester was asked if it’s been frustrating not having his whole team and he said it’s just been disappointing.

“It’s disappointment only in the sense that every team would love to have their full complement of players, but it’s very encouraging because you people have recognized what some of these young people have done,” Kuester said. “Our young guys are going to be very good before it’s all over.”
