Hamilton will start at power forward for Monday's preseason game against the Celtics, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear if usual starter Trevor Booker is getting the night off for rest, but coach Kenny Atkinson wants to get a better look at Hamilton, so he'll run with the top unit Monday. He could see extended minutes while running with the starters, but as soon as the regular season arrives, Hamilton will struggle to find available minutes off the bench.
