F Michael Bradley was activated and F Rodney Rogers started for Webber against the Hawks.

• HAMILTON ON HOLD: The Pistons put G Richard Hamilton on the injured list and activated G Horace Jenkins. Hamilton needed five stitches above his left eye on Sunday after being fouled by Cavaliers C Zydrunas Ilgauskas. He returned to the game to help Detroit win, 90-87, but did not play in the following game Tuesday at Atlanta. He is expected to play when the Pistons begin defense of their NBA title on Saturday at home.

• KINGS' JACKSON RETURNS: Kings G Bobby Jackson, who missed most of the season with torn ligaments in his left wrist, was activated from the injured list. To make room on the roster, the Kings placed F Peja Stojakovic on the injured list. Stojakovic, who is expected to be on the Kings' playoff roster, hasn't played since straining his groin Friday in a win over the Lakers.
