Richard Hamilton of the Detroit Pistons is ready to play tonight in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics. Detroit needs to win tonight to force a Game 7 back in Boston.

After shooting with the team, Hamilton said he had discomfort in his right elbow, but would play through it.

“Once I get out there and the adrenaline is going, I’ll be fine,” Hamilton said. “I told my teammates, ‘Don’t look at me as handicap.’ … I’m fine. I’m ready to roll.”

It hasn’t been reported yet, but Rip will most likely be wearing a protective mask on his elbow.
