Nocioni doubtful tonight

Andres Nocioni was looking forward to facing the Bulls for the first time since being traded to the Sacramento Kings last February, but the forward likely will miss Tuesday night’s Bulls-Kings game with a right hip injury.

“I can run but I cannot jump or change directions,” Nocioni said following the Kings’ shootaround. “I’m pushing myself the last couple of days, but I can’t do it. It wouldn’t be good for the team or for me to go out there. The team is doing well, so let someone else go in there and play.

“So I just have to sit and watch the game and be frustrated.”

Nocioni is averaging 11.6 points and 4.1 rebounds this season.
