Kirk Hinrich Out for Match-up at Brooklyn

For tonight’s game versus the Brooklyn Nets, Kirk Hinrich will be inactive. In fact, he will not even be in attendance. The Chicago Bulls announced this via Twitter earlier tonight.

Dr. Brian Cole of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush will evaluate Hinrich & determine his status once all medical information has been gathered.

Hinrich has suffered several injuries throughout the course of the season, including a burst bursa sac in his right elbow last month. His absence will give Nate Robinson the starting point guard position while Marquis Teague will receive valuable minutes off the bench.
