Richard Hamilton actually got good news when he found out he had torn his plantar fascia. Had the injury been plantar fasciitis, Hamilton could have missed significant time. With a tear, the injury often heals very quickly. Such should be the case with Hamilton.
According to NBA.com, Hamilton is expected to miss two weeks with the injury. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Hamilton will be out a couple weeks because of the tear, but it's not beyond reason that he returns within one week.
Hamilton has been a key component to the Chicago Bulls' offense this season with Derrick Rose still recovering from knee surgery. With him sidelined, the Bulls will have to find additional offense elsewhere. It's a tall order for a team that is already thin. Injuries have besieged the Bulls this season, but they have managed to stay alive despite all the obstacles. Now, they will have one more to deal with - at least for the next two weeks.
Hamilton is in his 14th NBA season. He has averaged 17.4 points per game in his career. So far this season, Hamilton is the second leading scorer behind Luol Deng. He is averaging 13.9 points per game and 2.3 assists per game.
