Kirk Hinrich didn't practice with the Bulls on Friday because of a bruised knee injury sustained on Tuesday against the Clippers.
Hinrich injured the knee during Chicago's 94-89 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, and did not play in the team's 96-89 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on the road on Wednesday. If Hinrich isn't available to start on Saturday, notes Sam, the spot will come down to either Nate Robinson or rookie Marquis Teague. Thibodeau wasn't committal on who, of the two, will get the nod.
For the season, Hinrich is averaging 6.7 points per game, shooting 36.1 percent from the floor -- and 38.1 percent from three-point range -- in 27.2 minutes per night. He's also averaging 5.5 assists per contest.
