Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince Practice... Lightly

With the Pistons currently on a three game losing streak, fans are naturally looking to the return of Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince. And there is progress, albeit slight.

Via the Free Press:

Hamilton took shots for the first time since he sprained his ankle in the season opener. But he didn't run nor jump, so it doesn't appear that he's close to returning.

Prince took some shots and also did some light jogging but said he wasn’t ready for contact yet.

And shockingly, Prince's recovery seems further along than Hamilton's. It's surprising because some believed Prince was going to miss the season with the ruptured disc.

Either way, I don't think anybody expected Hamilton to be out a month, or more, when he came down awkwardly on O.J. Mayo's foot in the season opener (especially when the x-rays were announced as negative).

Also, Will Bynum sprained his ankle against the Lakers, but played sparingly against the Blazers and is expected to play verse the Jazz tonight.
