Bulls say Hamilton has torn tissue in left foot

CHICAGO – The Bulls say veteran guard Richard Hamilton has torn tissue in his left foot.

The team says an MRI on Sunday confirmed he tore the plantar fascia tissue and will return "as his symptoms permit." Hamilton left Saturday's game against Philadelphia in the third quarter and returned to hit three of four free throws in the final 20 seconds, clinching a 93-88 win.

He said afterward that he felt something pop on the bottom of his foot.

Injuries limited him to 28 games last season — his first in Chicago.
