AUBURN HILLS, MICH. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons are without guards Richard Hamilton and Rodney Stuckey for Sunday night’s game against New Orleans.

The Pistons say Hamilton has an upset stomach, and Stuckey has a sore left big toe. Tracy McGrady and Ben Gordon started.

It is McGrady’s second start of the season and the fourth for Gordon.

Austin Daye is also out with a strained hamstring. Charlie Villanueva started at forward, his first start of the season.
