Richard Hamilton – Torn Plantar Fascia, Left Foot
Rip Hamilton ($4400) tore the plantar fascia in his left foot and will miss one week. The injury isn’t as bad as it sounds, as tearing it is usually much better, and different, from guys who suffer chronic plantar fasciitis. I’d expect a week, two at the longest.
Keep an eye on Jimmy Butler while Hamilton is out. I posted a waiver wire preview on Butler last week that you can find HERE. Butler could get the start and a real chance to show what he’s got. A good showing could go a long way toward gaining some significant playing time later in the season.
