Chicago Bulls Injury Update: Kyrie Irving out, Kirk Hinrich a game-time decision

Word out of the shootarounds before tonight’s Chicago Bulls-Cleveland Cavaliers tilt is that Kyrie Irving will not play, while Kirk Hinrich might.

The Bulls would be short-handed even if Hinrich does play, as Taj Gibson will miss the next couple of weeks with a sprained knee. And with Kyrie out, we suspect that any chance of this game being watchable — Hinrich or no Hinrich — has pretty well slipped down the drain at this point.

Now, who’s ready for Vladimir Radmanovic and/or Nazr Mohammed to get real minutes tonight??

Wait, where’s everybody going? Come back!
