Rip Hamilton didn't take part in the Bulls' record-setting win over the Magic Monday night, but the veteran shooting guard is slowly working his way back from his right-shoulder injury, so he can participate in even more significant games for the team.

"Getting better every day. I think that's the key thing that we want, to get better every day and not have any setbacks, and we've been doing that so far," Hamilton said of his recovery from a freak injury suffered when he ran into a screen set by Pacers All-Star center Roy Hibbert.

"We just want to continue to get it better each and every day. It's really hard to put a timetable on it. As long as we continue to progress, I just hope for the best, really."
