INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kirk Hinrich, Taj Gibson and Richard Hamilton missed the Chicago Bulls' game at Indiana on Sunday.
Hinrich is out because an injured right foot, Gibson is out with a left knee and Hamilton did not travel with the team because of an injured lower back.
Chicago also is missing guard Derrick Rose, who has not played this season because of a torn ACL in his left knee.
It's the second time in a month Chicago has come to Indiana short-handed. When the teams met Feb. 4, Hinrich sat out after having surgery for an infection in his right elbow and center Joakim Noah was out with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
The Pacers lead Chicago by three games.
