That was fun while it lasted.

The Bulls' rare streak of playing at full strength ended at four straight games Monday when C.J. Watson sat out with a sprained left ankle he suffered in Sunday's victory over Philadelphia.

Then, just 83 seconds after tipoff, Richard Hamilton banged into a Roy Hibbert screen, immediately clutched his right shoulder and quickly retreated to the locker room. He didn't return.

"He'll be examined Tuesday," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "He tried to shake it off. At first, I thought it might be a stinger. But that wasn't the case."

Players said Hamilton admitted to be in pain afterward but was in mostly good spirits.
