--G Richard Hamilton played his first home game since Jan. 8 when he came off the bench against Minnesota Wednesday. Hamilton had 11 points and six assists but shot 2-for-8 from the field in the second half. He is 9-for-29 from the field since being reinstated to the rotation earlier this week.
--G Tracy McGrady remains in head coach John Kuester's doghouse. McGrady has been healthy enough to play the last two games but hasn't left the bench. He was the starting point guard until the shoot-around fiasco in Philadelphia last week.
"What we're trying to do right now is look at a lot of different things," Kuester said.
--F Austin Daye scored a career-high 22 points against the Timberwolves. Daye's previous best was 20 against Orlando in January. He did not shoot a good percentage, going 7-for-18, but played 39 minutes with Tayshaun Prince sidelined by a back injury.
--F Jonas Jerebko (partial Achilles' tear, right leg) underwent surgery on Oct. 8 after crashing to the floor while driving to the basket during the opening preseason game. He has not yet been cleared to practice.
--G Terrico White (fractured fifth metatarsal, right foot) was injured during the Pistons' preseason opener and also underwent surgery Oct. 8. He has not played this season.
--F Tayshaun Prince (sore back) has missed four straight games. He is questionable to play Sunday against Washington.
--C Ben Wallace (personal reasons) has not played the last four games. He is also questionable to return Sunday.
