Bulls' Hinrich sidelined by elbow problem


Posted Feb 21, 2013 8:34 PM

CHICAGO (AP) -- Kirk Hinrich is sidelined again for the Chicago Bulls.

The veteran point guard is sitting out Thursday's game against the Miami Heat because of an ongoing problem with his right elbow.

Coach Tom Thibodeau says Hinrich was experiencing some soreness, so Nate Robinson started in his place. Hinrich missed seven games with an infection in the elbow before delivering 10 assists Tuesday in a win at New Orleans.

The Bulls visit Charlotte on Friday, and Thibodeau expects him to make the trip.
