Back injury forces Prince to bench, ends streak

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Detroit Pistons forward Tayshaun
Prince will miss Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic with a
back injury, ending his consecutive-games streak at 496.

Prince will be sidelined for at least three games before his
status is re-evaluated this weekend. His games-played streak was
second among active players, trailing Andre Miller, and his
games-started streak of 439 was the longest active run.

Prince last missed a game on April 13, 2003 - during his rookie
season - against Memphis.
