Description: The Bulls waived shooting guard Richard Hamilton on Wednesday. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: Hamilton only averaged 10.5 ppg during his two-year stint in Chicago. He's had a very hard time staying healthy over the last few seasons. Despite all the red flags, somebody is bound to take a chance on him in free agency.

Description: Chicago shooting guard Richard Hamilton won't be in the lineup Sunday against the Heat. He's serving a one-game suspension for elbowing Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan on Friday night.
Insight: Hamilton (10.1 ppg) hasn't produced a 20-point game since November and has had trouble staying healthy in 2012-13. Fantasy owners can probably forget about him at this point.
 
4/9/2013 6:56:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard Rip Hamilton (back) will play Tuesday for the first time since Feb. 26, according to Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com.
Insight: Hamilton isn't worth owning in any fantasy leagues, but he could cut into the minutes of Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler.
 
4/7/2013 6:26:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard Rip Hamilton is still out with a back injury and it's unknown if he'll return before the end of the season. SOURCE: Chicago Tribune
Insight: Injuries are really beginning to pile up for the Bulls. Chicago featured just seven players in Friday's win against the Magic. Hamilton hasn't played since late February and we're not expecting him to come back any time soon.
 
3/9/2013 12:21:00 PM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton (back) has missed five straight games and is expected to miss Chicago's three-game road trip.
Insight: He only averaged 20 mpg in February anyway so fantasy owners can cut him loose. Marco Belinelli (63 points in his last three games) is a decent option while Hamilton is out.
 
3/8/2013 11:05:00 AM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton (back) has missed four straight games and is expected to miss Friday's game against Utah as well, due to back spasms.
Insight: He only averaged 20 mpg in February anyway so fantasy owners can cut him loose. Marco Belinelli (41 points in his last two games) and Jimmy Butler are decent options while Hamilton is out.
 
3/5/2013 5:12:00 PM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game, according to Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com.
Insight: Hamilton has missed three straight games with lower back spasms. He only averaged 20 mpg in February anyway so fantasy owners can cut him loose. Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler, who both scored 20 points on Sunday, are decent options while Hamilton is out.
 
3/4/2013 9:30:00 AM
Description: Chicago Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton missed Sunday's game with Indiana and could miss Wednesday's game against San Antonio as well.
Insight: He's missed three straight games because of back spasms and at 35-years-old doesn't rebound from injuries as quickley as 10 years ago. Marco Belinelli produced 20 points and five assists against the Pacers and is a viable short-term alternative.
 
3/2/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton isn't expected to travel with the team for Sunday's game in Indiana.
Insight: He's missing his second straight game because of back spasms. Hamilton's durability has been a huge issue in recent years (he's missed a combined 114 games over the past four seasons) so fantasy owners have probably gotten used to this by now.
 
3/2/2013 1:14:00 PM
Description: Chicago's Richard Hamilton, who was a surprise scratch Thursday night against Philadelphia, is out for Saturday's game against Brooklyn as well, due to back spasms.
Insight: Hamilton's minutes went mostly to Marco Belinelli on Thursday, but the backup didn't do anything to warrant fantasy attention.
 
3/1/2013 12:11:00 PM
Description: Chicago's Richard Hamilton, who was a surprise scratch Thursday night against Philadelphia, is questionable for Saturday's game against Brooklyn with back spasms.
Insight: Hamilton's minutes went mostly to Marco Belinelli (9.4 ppg), but the backup didn't do anything to warrant fantasy attention.
 
2/28/2013 8:15:00 PM
Description: Chicago's Richard Hamilton was a surprise scratch Thursday night against Philadelphia. The veteran shooting guard is out with back spasms.
Insight: Hamilton (10.2 ppg) has no history of back spasms so hopefully he'll only have to miss a game or two. Marco Belinelli (9.5 ppg) will grab the start in Rip's place.
 
1/13/2013 10:14:00 AM
Description: Chicago guard Rip Hamilton has scored 13 ppg on 66.7 percent shooting his last two games.
Insight: Hamilton is only playing 20 mpg in eight games since returning from an injury. He has been splitting time at shooting guard with Marco Belinelli and isn't worthy of a fantasy roster spot at this time.
 
12/30/2012 10:58:00 AM
Description: Chicago guard Rip Hamilton produced nine points in his return to the court Saturday against Washington. Hamilton had missed the team's previous 12 games with an injured foot.
Insight: Hamilton looked good in his 15 minutes of action but admitted his foot was still bothering him a bit. The injury could linger all year so we wouldn't put much faith in Hamilton going forward.
 
12/29/2012 1:35:00 PM
Description: After fully participating in shootaround Saturday, Bulls guard Richard Hamilton (foot) is likely to start against the Wizards. SOURCE: Aggrey Sam, CSN Chicago
Insight: Hamilton suffered a torn plantar fascia in a Dec. 1 game against Philadelphia. His return will push Marco Belinelli, who is averaging 15.3 ppg in 12 starts, back to the bench. According to Sam, Hamilton will have limited playing time Saturday night so fantasy owners should leave him on the bench.

Description: Chicago guard Richard Hamilton (foot) is a game-time call Saturday after practicing Friday. SOURCE: Aggrey Sam, CSN Chicago
Insight: Hamilton suffered a torn plantar fascia in a Dec. 1 game against Philadelphia. He had played well over the first 15 games, averaging 13.9 ppg, 2.3 rpg and 2.3 apg. His return will push Marco Belinelli, who is averaging 15.3 ppg in 12 starts, back to the bench.
 
12/25/2012 12:16:00 PM
Description: Chicago guard Richard Hamilton, who has been out while suffering a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, has begun running.
Insight: Hamilton suffered the injury in a Dec. 1 game against Philadelphia. He had played well over the first 15 games, averaging 13.9 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 2.3 apg.
 
12/3/2012 10:10:00 AM
Description: Chicago guard Richard Hamilton is out indefinitely after suffering a torn plantar fascia in his left foot.
Insight: Hamilton suffered the injury in Saturday's game against Philadelphia. He's played well over the first 15 games, averaging 13.9 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 2.3 apg. Marco Belinelli should move into the starting role, though Hamilton's absence could also mean more minutes for Nate Robinson.
 
12/2/2012 11:39:00 AM
Description: Chicago guard Richard Hamilton is set to have an MRI on his sprained left foot.
Insight: Hamilton suffered the injury in Saturday's game against Philadelphia. He left the game briefly but was able to return later on, which leads us to believe that this isn't anything too serious.
 
12/1/2012 10:29:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard Richard Hamilton had to leave Saturday's game against Philadelphia with a sprained left foot.
Insight: He's done for the night and could be on the shelf for the next couple of games. Look for Nate Robinson to move into the starting lineup if Hamilton misses Tuesday's game against Indiana.
