Bulls star Derrick Rose remained sidelined by a right groin injury and was not available for Friday's game against the Detroit Pistons. The league's reigning MVP has missed nine straight games. The Bulls' Richard Hamilton was in uniform but not in the starting lineup against his former team after missing the previous 12 games because of a sprained right shoulder. The veteran guard has been sidelined by a variety of injuries this season - his first in Chicago after spending nine in Detroit. The Pistons were hardly a picture of health, with Austin Daye starting at shooting guard over the injured Rodney Stuckey (sore left hamstring) and Ben Gordon (sore right groin). Coach Lawrence Frank says they're day to day.
