Bulls Notes: Hamilton, Evans, Belinelli

The Bulls pulled out a 93-88 win over the Sixers on Saturday night but it didn't come without a price.  Here's the latest out of Chicago..

  • Richard Hamilton injured his left foot in the third quarter of the Bulls' win over the 76ers and an MRI revealed that he has a torn plantar fascia, writes Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com.  Hamilton would actually return to the game with the trainer's green light and sank three of four free throws in the final 20 seconds to help Chicago seal the W.
  • With Hamilton sidelined, the Bulls may pursue free agent Maurice Evans, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld (via Twitter).  Chicago, he notes, has expressed interest in Evans in the past.  The veteran guard had a number of offers for make-good contracts over the offseason but declined all of them as he demanded a guaranteed deal.
  • If the Bulls use their open roster spot to sign another guard that player won't get the starting nod over Marco Belinelli or Jimmy Butler, writes K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.  There's no timetable for Hamilton's return yet but he could be out for a week or more.
