ATLANTA (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls will be without at least two starters against the Atlanta Hawks.
Coach Tom Thibodeau says guard Kirk Hinrich had a procedure in Chicago on Saturday to have an infection cleaned out of his right elbow. Thibodeau says he expects Hinrich to miss about a week.
Hinrich, center Joakim Noah and forward Carlos Boozer missed Friday night's loss to Brooklyn with injuries.
Noah will miss his second straight game with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
Boozer was held out Friday night with a right hamstring injury. Boozer is participating in pregame warmups on Saturday and hopes to play against the Hawks.
The Hawks are without backup center Zaza Pachulia with a sore right Achilles.
