Tayshaun Prince injury: Veteran could play vs. Atlanta Hawks

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Tayshaun Prince sprained his right ankle during Saturday night's win, but is hopeful to play on Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks.

Despite spraining his right ankle in the third quarter of Saturday night's win over the Washington Wizards, 32-year-old Tayshaun Prince said he expects to play Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks [via The Detroit News]:

"I didn't do anything today, but I should be all right by the game," said Prince, who's officially listed as a game-time decision. [...]

"It was a little bit more painful," Prince said. "Like my left one if I sprained it now it could be a bad sprain, but I've sprained it so many times I could bounce right back, but the right one hasn't been twisted."

It'd be much more interesting if Prince can't play. Lawrence Frank hasn't said who would start if he can't go, but imagining how the rotation would play out could be quite fun. Maybe Rodney Stuckey would get re-inserted into the starting lineup and Kyle Singler would slide to his more natural SF position. Austin Daye saw extended playing time on Saturday night after Prince got hurt, so maybe he would start in his place. Maybe Jonas Jerebko and/or Corey Maggette would find their way back into the rotation. I guess we'll find out closer to tip, but what would you like to see happen?
