AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Pistons forward Tayshaun Prince is out of the lineup again because of a family matter.

Damien Wilkins started at small forward Friday night against the Atlanta Hawks.

Prince was also out Wednesday night in Detroit's three-point loss to the Miami Heat. The short-handed Pistons are also having injury problems. They're missing Ben Gordon because of a sore shoulder and Charlie Villanueva because of a sore right ankle. Will Bynum is also out with a strained right foot.
