CHICAGO (AP) -- Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich is out for Chicago's game against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night because of a knee injury.
Hinrich was hurt in the first half of a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday and also missed Wednesday's road win in Philadelphia. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he is "getting better, but not quite there."
Hinrich is averaging 6.7 points and 5.5 assists in 19 starts for Chicago.
Nate Robinson will start in place of Hinrich against the Nets. The banged-up Bulls are already without guards Derrick Rose and Richard Hamilton.
