Pistons still banged up

From Chris McCosky's blog:

Don't look for Rip Hamilton Wednesday against the Blazers. He did some light running and took part in shooting drills Tuesday, but he still hasn't made any hard cuts on his torn left groin. Coach Michael Curry said the team would be lucky if Hamilton played at all on this trip.

As for Rasheed Wallace, he is a game-time decision but it seems doubtful that he will play. He spent the entire practice working with physical therapist Arnie Kander.

Funny thing is, Antonio McDyess is probably more banged up than either of the other two guys. His ribs are still bothering him badly, especially when he twists his upper body. His left thigh is still bruised. And X-rays showed that he had torn tendons in his left pinky finger in Los Angeles Sunday. But Dyess fully expects to play Wednesday.
