Pistons coach Michael Curry announced this morning that Rip Hamilton will be back in the starting lineup, playing alongside Rodney Stuckey, in an effort tojumpstart a team in the midst of an eight-game losing streak. "It's nothing on Allen," Curry said. "He's just a guy that needs the basketball and because of it that, it reduced the time Stuckey hadthe ball in his hands." Hamilton has been critical of late about Curry's decision to make him the team's sixth man. The Pistons have gone 4-12 since he was benched. Iverson's status for tonight's game against Orlando is unclear after he aggravated a back injury suffered in Tuesday's loss to Miami. That, andhe's now listed as day-to-day with a slightly bruised ego.
