Kirk Hinrich injury: Bulls guard hurts elbow, is day-to-day

US PRESSWIRE

Kirk Hinrich left Saturday's game with an injured elbow, further depleting an already damaged Chicago Bulls' backcourt.

Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich hurt his elbow in the first half of Chicago's win over the New York Knicks on Saturday and is considered day-to-day by head coach Tom Thibodeau, according to Aggrey Sam of Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

Hinrich did not play in the second half. His injury further damages an already depleted Bulls' backcourt. Guard Rip Hamilton is out with a torn left plantar fascia and Derrick Rose continues to rehab from a torn ACL.

Marco Belinelli and Nate Robinson stepped up at the guard positions with Hinrich out, scoring a combined 36 points on Saturday night. Belinelli played 45 minutes and Robinson tallied eight assists and six rebounds in 30 minutes of action.

Hinrich does not have much time to rest before Chicago's next contest, as the Bulls play back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers. He is averaging 6.6 points and 5.6 assists in just over 27 minutes of action this season.
