Marco Belinelli started in place of Hamilton, who missed about a month earlier this season because of a torn fascia in his foot.
He has played in 45 games this season, averaging 10.2 points and 2.4 assists a game.
Hamilton's injury is just the latest in a series of setbacks with Taj Gibson (sprained MCL) and Derrick Rose (torn ACL) both out as well.
