INDIANAPOLIS – Kirk Hinrich and his injured left hamstring participated in the Monday morning shootaround, but according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, the guard was still not ready to go.
Hinrich and Doug McDermott (right knee) were both out against the Pacers tonight. The good news on the Hinrich front was that Thibodeau thought he was close to returning.
Hinrich has now missed four games since injuring the leg in the 129-120 win over Toronto on Dec. 22. He scored just three points in that game, playing 21 minutes.
