Kirk Hinrich sits during Bulls' win in Philly

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich did not play in the Bulls victory over the Philadelphia 76ers due to a left knee injury.

The Chicago Bulls defeated the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday without the help of point guard Kirk Hinrich, who sat out with a left knee injury. Hinrich suffered the injury in the Bulls' loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday and is day to day.

Hinrich attempted to warm up and play, but ultimately the Bulls decided to rest him for the day; Nate Robinson started in Hinrich's place. Robinson scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four assists in the Bulls' 96-89 victory. Rookie point guard Marquis Teague had a significantly increased role as well, playing 20 minutes with six points, four assists, and two steals.

Hinrich has dealt with multiple minor injuries this season, but has not missed significant time. He has played in 19 games and is averaging 6.7 points, and 5.5 assists per game. The Bulls acquired Hinrich during the offseason to help fill in as the starting point guard while Derrick Rose recovers from a torn ACL.
